TL;DR - Electoral college map is skewed in favor of rural white areas.

Yeah the main argument for EC is that "certain states would override others" but this ignores the fact that Texas has solidly blue areas and California has some solidly red areas as well.

I find it bullshit that certain states hold the key.

More people live in urban areas than rural areas. People in urban areas tend to vote democrat. Democrats would have the advantage if we used a popular vote system, which I'd be fine with.

The "Urban vote Democrat, Rural vote Republican" is actually very recent.

In the 80s the nation overwhelmingly voted for Ronald Reagan. In the 90s a lot of white conservative southerners voted for Bill Clinton. Electoral maps are constantly changing. Texas used to be a solid blue state while California used to be a red state.

Consider this. The US is purple in regards to political affiliation, yet many of the middle states are red as fuck when represented in Congress(especially through House of Representatives, which has been skewed dominantly as Republican for decades).

Meaning the US population has been horrendously misrepresented for years, which is probably why Democrats tend to benefit the country and Republicans tend to fuck it up.

Yeah, not to mention the constant gerrymandering that the Republicans do as well as their voter restriction laws which include:

*Voter ID laws in NC
*Limiting polling places in Wisconsin
etc, etc. Such shit has got us into the situation we're in now.

Yeah. A serious issue right now is that a lot of populations are massively underrepresented. This is the case in states like Texas for example, where areas which typically have high number of Democrats are lumped with Republican areas, hence giving the feel that it's a Republican area, when in reality if the boundaries were more fair, they'd be blue areas.

One solution could be to adopt what Nebraska and Maine does, which would basically mean some ECs in CA could theoretically go to the Republican candidate, while ECs in TX could go to the Democratic candidate.

Don't get me started on the attempted secession of the state of Jefferson...
