The EC isnt a "core part" of the Constitution. Its a quirk, an artifact left over from placating the slave states (which had small voting populations), explicitly negotiated to extend the 3/5ths compromise to the Presidential election, which all non-slavers wanted to be a popular vote. This is plain historical record. The EC was largely irrelevant until modern times, when the GOP decided to abandon any attempt to appeal to urban voters and went all in on a rural vs city strategy, in which the EC provides a structural advantage.

Are you dumb? Thats exactly what I said. Its an artifact from a 200+ year old negotiation around Slavery. That isnt a "core part" of the Constitution, it can be done away with without impacting anything else.
