Something I would point out is that interests are rarely divided into big states and small states, but urban vs rural.
The issue with the electoral college as it is, is that it causes rural votes in blue states to not get counted, and it causes urban votes in red states to not get counted. Having the electoral college gone would lead Republican votes in California and Democratic votes in say Alabama would actually matter.
That's not because of the electoral college - that's because the winner takes all.
Another point of the electoral college which often gets overlooked is to ensure that every state will have it's representatives. Remove the electoral college, and it becomes a luck-based mission for all the smaller states as the more populous states and cities would gobble up most, if not all the spots. As a result, they would only cater for their states/cities, leaving most of the country in the dust. That's why even a tiny country like Luxembourg still has 4 voting districts to ensure every region of the country is accounted for.Last edited by Bofferbrauer2 - on 28 June 2019
