I LOVE hearing pundits discuss and strategize the state thing. It's true, if you win California and Texas and/or NY, even by one or two popular votes, it looks like an electoral landslide.
Perhaps some people just don't question enough.

Have you people learned nothing? I live in Wisconsin, not the United States.
If there were only a popular vote, state sovereignty would dissolve, and we would all be ruled by a single government, the United States Government.
"What would happen if we abolished the Electoral College?"
" This is exactly the same thing. Abolishing the Electoral College or Senate would reduce the government representation of the smallest states to make it illogical to remain in the Union.

Hmm....being from the south, I start to get nervous when people start talking about "States Rights".
Being ruled by those in California, Texas, and New York, does not sound like fun to me.
