That's right. The nine largest cities would be in charge and everybody else in the country would be beholden to them. People who wanted to get elected president would have to cater to those cities at the expense of the rest of the country. None of those cities are in Oklahoma.....the state of Oklahoma and everybody living here (including you) LOSE if we abolish the electoral college. You may be just fine with people in New York and Los Angeles telling you how to live your life because you agree with them, but don't be so naive as to think you'll always agree with them or that your children/grandchildren will.
