If you really want to dismantle the Electoral College, you might just as well get rid of all the states for that matter.Do we really want more centralization of power...or less?
The decision to stop expanding congressional representation as a function of a population constant has resulted in a diminution of local civic or popular influence upon the national legislature. The net result of this has been a disproportionate shift of power away from urban concentrations to the rural. Had this not occurred, the number of legislators, and thus presidential electors, would be significantly higher, the majority of whom coming from the densely populated urban regions. This would certainly serve to rectify much of the disparity now manifesting with the electoral college of today.
