Abolishing The Electoral College Is Far from Fair:

Half of the US population lives in these 9 states

More than 330 million people live in the United States, but that doesn’t mean the population is distributed evenly. Far from it.

California and New York have high average densities of 251 and 420 people per square mile because of the millions of people crammed into major cities. That’s even taking into account both states’ many suburbs, where people are more spread out. 

States without heavily-populated cities have very different numbers. Alaska, the largest state by area, ranks 50th in population density, with only 1.3 people per square mile.

The more granular you get in how you slice up the US population, the more pronounced the differences in density become.  

(From the Insider)

Total population of the three above cities: 15,448,339

The state of Wyoming has a population of just 567,025:

44 states have populations less than 15, 448,339:

Removing the Electoral College would immediately disenfranchise 44 states :  

44 states would have no reason to vote. All could be silenced by just three cities: 

In as much as these states would no longer have a reason to be a part of the USA. 

This is why, the founders so wisely created the Electoral College to insure the inclusion  all states, not just those with dense population.
