from the link:
"The electoral college is a time-honored system that, has only broken down three times in over 200 years."
--It has only broken down from the perspective of the losing party. Instead, just as John Ferrier says, it has worked exactly as designed.

"States could be redistricted after each census - just like house seats are distributed now."
--The link posits this as an advantage! Imagine having your neighborhood change states multiple times, having to learn what new state laws apply to you. Imagine the burden to small business, changing employment laws and tax codes. And, over the long term, would we not have to do away with some state capitals (and capitols), and appoint new ones in areas of growing population?

Interesting map of population density, but shoddy rationalization. Why keep the notion of states at all? Or the Senate?
