I found one guy who claims the electoral college “betrayed the people” in this last election.

     No, he is not suggesting that we should go to a popular vote.  That would have made Obama the winner, too.  He wants to go to s “county by county” system.  That would let Romney win.  There are more individual rural counties in the country   And they tend to vote Republican.  But most of the people are in the major cities.  I wouldn’t want to give more weight to 10 counties with a combined population of less than 1,000 more weight that a single large city with a population over 10,000,000.
