Electoral college vs. popular vote

I don’t understand and find it disturbing those people who only support using popular voting method opposed to electoral college method.

By using popular vote method, two — maybe three states (New York/California/Illinois) — could and would most likely elect the president strictly due to population.

People need to realize remaining states from all four corners of this country contribute to this country via some means.

Example: Auto, rail, coal, steel, farms, industrial, etc. also deserve to have their votes heard in selecting

our presidents.

Just like radio fictional character Earl Pitts back in the 1960s would say after his two-minute commentary, “Wake Up America.”
