Why save the electoral college?

Without the Electoral College, the division of power between states and the federal government will be greatly diminished, and it could be argued that the Senate should be abolished as well. Without the Electoral College, the Constitution would not have been ratified, and the same arguments that were made and defeated in 1787 by the more populous states will seize power from massive land areas that are operated by fewer people but with massive land concerns. It also concentrates power to coastal urban regions and could exploit resources from other regions who would no longer be able to select a president who would have concern for all states. Currently, states like Iowa and New Hampshire represent the major importance of small states by having early primaries and caucuses, but without the Electoral College, candidates would only be concerned about representing and winning the densely populated regions, leaving many states out of the selection process. This is more than just campaign stops. Presidential candidates would have to pander to highly urban concerns alone, and the entire system would modify to only consider the needs of these people rather than the current system which forces candidates to become familiar with a variety of regional issues across the nation.
