The electoral college takes the vote away from more voters than David Christoffer wants to take the vote away from. Christoffer wants to take the vote away from people in big cities since they do not have as many acres of land. That is as wrong as to say that the city of Worthington should have no vote or influence on Nobles County since their people are so tightly in a small space.  

The biggest problem with the electoral college is not that it does not respect the people from large populated states. The biggest problem is that the candidates then campaign in only about six states, so the rest of us do are not as able to vote as wisely. If you meet the person, you get a better idea of who they are.
