Access to information was significantly different when the EC was established. Today, it really doesn’t matter where you live, you get news as it happens. You know every opinion of every candidate the minute they express it. The notion that larger population centers have an outsized influence is not as compelling as it was when the framers established it. Times change and this is a institution that should be re-evaluated. There is more instability that comes from electing a President that can’t carry the popular vote.
