If anything, the state population that determines the number of electorates should be updated every 2-4 years (census). And the party committees should help pay for that. Billions of dollars are spent in an election, and millions could be allocated to fund a census. Popular vote would make it so CA, IL, TX, NY and FL controlled the outcome of all presidential elections, rendering the voice of all other states moot. Please fight for the electoral college. Update the electorates as needed, but keep the electoral college in place.
