Question for discussion:

Since we were formed as the United STATES and not the United Electoral Votes or United Congressional Districts do you think that the Founders were seeking a balance more at the individual state level rather than what you mention (the city elite vs. peasant farmer)?

The electoral college was established at the federal level for national elections, so I assume the founders meant what they did.

They also left the apportionment of electoral votes up to the states to decide for themselves.
