NYC alone??For me, no. It’s based on not being OK with the fate of the country being decided by several high-population urban areas. If it were decided by popular vote, you’d see candidates spend even more time in more limited places.
Five counties in New York City, covering 320-ish square miles, provided Hillary’s popular vote winning margin in 2016. Should anybody be OK with NYC alone picking our president?
You act like NYC alone could outvote the whole nation. Just because they provided her winning margin doesn't mean all that much.
You take any winning candidate, go look up the areas of their strongest support, cut them out and pretend like those guys are the ones deciding all the elections.
Why should .18% of the voters in this country hold .56% of the authority?
