The Equal Protection argument against “winner take all” in the Electoral College

Professor, you are doing everything within your power to start a civil war.

The difference between handing Hillary Clinton the presidency based on your challenge to winner-take-all assignment of Electoral College votes and Bush v. Gore is that the latter decision did nothing more than reverse a partisan ruling by a heavily Democrat Florida Supreme Court. It righted a wrong, not committed one.

Tell me honestly, without resorting to legalistic mumbo-jumbo, exactly why the people of the American heartland should accept the kind of hard-left imperial rule that giving control of our country to California and New York, which abolishing the Electoral College would do, as legitimate and not simply the elites suppressing their voices and their votes.
