Regarding his comments on the electoral college:

The assumption that the electoral college serves a role in keeping small states relevant in the election is just not true. If you look at where the candidates spend their time, it is mostly the states that where the race is close. Ohio, Pennysylvania, Florida, and Virginia are quite populous and are visited quite frequently. There are a few small states like Iowa that are frequented, but only because the race is close there too.

If we abolish the electoral college, would candidates only spend time in Northeastern cities? No, because the top 10 cities in the country account for less than 8% of the population. Even the top 100 cities in the country account for less than 20% of the population.
