Response to question everything (Original post)

4. We really don't know how things would have played out...

 

if both candidates campaigned to win the popular vote instead of the electoral vote (most likely Clinton would have won). Campaigning only happens in a small number of states and the rest of the country is neglected. Now if the EC were done away with small states and smaller cities would be neglected. I live in a smaller area of the US and my area would get almost no attention without the EC. Places of high importance in the EC are not going to vote to get rid of it.
