The US Electoral College system introduces weirdness in elections but here's
an alternate take on it.  The poster child example of a state which
shouldn't be given 3 electoral votes is Wyoming, since most of it is open
range, very few citizens, which is why you don't know and probably never
even met anyone who grew up there.  It has very little evidence of humanity,
but the few who are there get a disproportionately large representation.


Compare with densely populated developed states, such as New Jersey.  The
wildlife habitat is limited.  


But nearly everything living in Wyoming is wild.


So. we can think of Wyoming delegates as representing wildlife.
