I've read these types of defenses of the electoral college before, how noble the electoral college is, how this country is a republic, not a democracy, blah, blah, blah.
What is less clear is why certain states like Wyoming are over-represented with 3 electoral votes, while other states like California are under-represented with only 55 electoral votes. California contains over 30% of the country's population and should be worth nearly 200 electoral votes just by itself. If each state had equal electoral college weight based on their population, then the electoral college wouldn't be such a total scam.
