Would you be in favor of abolishing the electoral college despite knowing what it would mean?

Let me explain trump won in 2016 despite not winning the popular vote, so people think that because of that the electoral collage should be removed so that only the popular vote matters.

Here's the issue with that, By making it based solely on the popular vote, you essentially make it so that all the voting power and pretty much the only places that matter are states that have big cities. In other words the power to decide who the president is, becomes centered entirely around New York, California, Washington State, Illinois, Texas and Florida.

Leaving the rural areas essentially powerless and exasperating the core reason why trump got elected in the first place.

So would you still approve of the electoral college being removed knowing this?
