Yeah, the electoral college system is out of date. If you want to argue about states rights there's still the bicameral system of having senators and representatives. (There are 2 senators from every state, regardless of how big or small its population; there are population-proportionate numbers of representatives though.) With a presidential election it really should be 1 person = 1 vote.
Also, going back to Ryan being picked. He's the one who wants to overhaul social security (well, plenty do, but he had that whole plan and has been one of the poster children for it) and that seems like a bad idea if the Republicans want to win Florida.
