Not every State is represented equally, as per the constitution, and that is because there is no primacy of state govenremnt/legislature over the people.
The people can vote directly for their legislature, and if it does not execute their will, they will be voted out. (theoretically. It doesn't seem to work as well in practice)
Absolutely. But then the legislature opens itself up to being removed from office. They are supposed to execute the will of the people, so taking a vote is the best way to determine that, but not necessarily the only way to.If a Legislature wishes, it need not consult its people on the matter at ALL, and that's absolute.
My main point is that all states are not viewed equally, at least with respects to choosing the president. The actual number of people in each state dictate the total value of each State legislatively.
Not all states are equal. But all state legislatures are viewed as equal.
