I really think the problems stems to the foundation of this country. Placing the power of the vote in the cities basically turns the cities into the ruling elite. 10% of the nation determining the fate of the entire country. Cities do get a huge part of the vote also, I mean if you look at California and New York, the state is pretty much a red state, but the major cities caries the state. That of course is evened out by many of the other states who have less population but enough electoral votes to keep the 5 or so states from being the elite that determine the fate of the nation.Why does it matter if the candidates go only to the population centers? It seems like we are undervaluing a city person's vote.
