Well, no... because then the States wouldn't matter.
In terms of deciding a single federal Chief Executive? Maybe not but I don't see where that matters. Out of all the facets of states' rights, the EC ranks somewhere down near the bottom in terms of importance. And since the system we have now is to the detriment of other states, I don't see "states wouldn't matter" being a valid argument.
Disenfranchising people with the excuse of "states rights" strikes me as remarkably wrong. Not that it would be the first or last time in our nation's history that we've used that excuse for the same ends.
