Meh, it won't be like that forever. And you go because you, I don't know, care? I can't speak for candidates but were it me (as a normal person running and not a politician) I'd probably go out of my way to go to as many places as possible to see the entire breadth of it all. People in those locations are more connected than they ever have been. You can say that their votes won't matter in that respect but they have access to information and the ability to keep themselves from being disconnected, in the dark and uninformed, not just about the country but about things in life. People choose to live their pretend lifestyles and stay hidden. My issue with it is them trying to dictate the way the rest of the world works so they can live in a bubble. Stepping out of their bubble, their 'popular vote' would matter just as much.
Really it gets down to belief systems and I hate to say it but I don't really think it'll ever be improved until people are more aware and less concerned with religions and weird, old school existences.
For the record I wouldn't vote for someone that I saw blatantly only campaigning in certain areas, essentially stating that those are the only areas that matter.
I think it's naïve and pessimistic to assume that someone running for office wouldn't visit areas with lower populations because they really only need to win NY or LA, but it's pretty naïve of me and overly optimistic to assume they would.
Just so it's out in the open and because I'm not really ashamed of it I'm pretty liberal with political leanings and did not vote in the last election.
Why would you not? If you told me I only had to get 75 million votes to become President, why should I spend any time in Podunk Alabama or Backwoods Vermont? Ill hit the biggest cities with the largest populations. You could spend months traveling the state of Tennessee and get every 6mil vote. While your opponent spends their time in the City of Los Angeles and gets all 8mil votes.
