Obsolete Electoral College

The electoral college made sense in the 1700s when you had to collect election results by horseback. Today, if you live in a battleground state, your vote matters. If you live in a red or blue state, your vote gets lost. Further, the electoral college only roughly matches the population of the state. Sometimes your vote counts more than others sometimes less. Politicians unfairly, politically, favour battleground states. If instead, you decided the president by popular vote, everyone’s vote would count, and would count equally, no matter where you lived.
