This year, 2/3 of all rallies were held in 3 battleground states ( Florida, North Carolina, Ohio ), 94% rallies were held in about 9 of them, and 15 states or so did not receive 1 single visit by either candidate.
you are just totally unwilling to look at the other side of the argument.
without electoral college, the reverse will happen and that is arguably far worse. candidates will abandon battleground states and focus on turnouts in their base states. this will be more polarizing.
like it or not, trump flipped blue leaning states and that is far more legitimate to be a president than to have a turnout duel of blue states vs red states.
