It's crazy that we are constrained by a law passed when the country had 1/3 the people it has today. In 1920 the population of the United States was 106 Million.A good condition 510 would be a sweet find these days. Not a million dollars, but just sayin.
As for EC, the problem is that there should be over a thousand EC votes, not just 538. In fact, going off the original ratio in the Constitution, there should be almost 11,000 EC votes (and members of Congress). I'm not saying that there should be quite that many, but that there are only 538 is the source of the problem.
