How would a system of direct election of the president affect the political campaigning strategy of the presidential campaigns?

Which groups benefit and which are hurt by the Electoral College system?

Answer whichever ones you want. Thanks for your contributions.

Without an electoral college large urban centers would benefit and rural states and regions would suffer. This would most likely benefit minorities and liberals as they tend to be found in greater numbers in big cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Republican candidates would have to modify their campaigning strategy to appeal to these types of voters. They could no longer rely on southern and midwestern states to carry them to the White House.
