All states have a say.
By all states you mean about 2/5 of the states right? Cause 60% of the states are being ignored on policy by both candidates, except for the occasion visit for bling bling. If you support the electoral college, so be it, but don't pass it off as some panacea of equality when all it does is shift the focus to a minority of states and people. The fact is that these candidates will spend more time over the next ten weeks in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida than the other 46 states combined.
South Carolina aint getting a say cause it is going Republican. New Mexico and Arizona are getting says but only small ones.
We've been over this many times. If you want some people's votes to count for more than other's in electing a president then support the electoral college. Some people like to see a world of 51 governments constituencies, I prefer to think of it as 300 or so million people. Whatever floats your boat.
Moderate states with medium to large populations like Pennsylvania will be supported in an indiviualized system or the electoral college system. Small states that lean heavily to one party one way like Idaho will be ignored in either system. The only difference is that the electoral college favors moderate states with small populations like Iowa over larger population states with populations that lean one way or another like Texas.
The whole premise of democracy is that there is social value and empowerment in following the interests and will of the majority within the legal contraints of protecting certain rights of the minority via individual Constitutional rights. The electoral college defeats the concept of majority rule and/or largest bloc rule and is a perversion of democracy.
