From the beginning of the nation, there were concerns about the strengths of the larger states and balancing that with fairness to smaller states. If the nation was built on population alone, we would have only the House of Representatives and a popularly elected president, and our nation would have splintered into 13 small countries in 1787. Instead, the creation of the Senate and the Electoral College allowed the states to work together in the formation of a Constitutional republic that has lasted for more than 230 years. The Electoral College helps unify the nation despite wide differences form one region to another.
