Paulus Textor makes a valid point for reapportionment and If not for the Electoral process, the President of the United States could be elected exclusively by voters exclusively from just the heavily populated areas. California makes up 12% of the population of the US, where New York and Texas make up 7% and 8% respectively. Election 2000 was the perfect example of the wisdom of the Electoral process. 60% of the states selected the president, and when the "folks" in states like South Dakota pulled that lever, their vote was counted. One hundred percent of the states were represented.
