Several counties west of the Divided voted for Obama 2008 and in 2012.  Quite a few east of the Divided voted for Romney.  The Electoral College was set up in the Constitution to give states more equal footing regardless of population (among other reasons, some logistical some political).

It may be a vestige of a bygone time, but it actually results in state’s like Colorado having MORE of a say in the presidential election than would occur via direct popular vote.  Of course, President Obama won the popular vote too, and over 330 Electoral votes.
