"If a simple majority were the rule, conceivably these nine states could determine the presidency...Were it not for the Electoral College, presidential candidates could safely ignore less populous states." This is why the framers of the Constitution created the Electoral College. As a red-stater, there is no way in hell I'd want to be governed by large-populated, and liberal, states like California, New York and Illinois. Just as Rhode Island didn't want to be run rough-shod by Virginia in 1787.
