The question ultimately boils down to whether you thinks states matter. If you don’t think that the delineation between the states really has any meaning any more, then the electoral college will seem an irrelevant and harmful anachronism. If you think that states have value in and of themselves, then you think the electoral college is a wise check against tyranny of the majority. Voting entirely by popular vote is one end of the spectrum. Voting with every state having equal share is the other end. Both ends have serious problems. I think the electoral college is a brilliant compromise.
