All of the comments are that without the electoral college "it wouldn't be worth it to vote if you live in low population states." So its better that MILLIONS of people in California and New York waste their votes? We are letting a very small percentage of Americans decide the presidential election. It is illogical to think that letting 30% of people decide instead of 70% is what is best. Especially if the whole point is to avoid mob rule. The mob just has to be smaller now! Also, the electoral college is the result of a racist system that successfully fought for uneven representation.
