Not saying we need to change the system, but it is an odd one. The smaller (in population) states already get the same number of senators. Two Wyoming senators and two California senators. The House is decided by population so that it's more of a traditional democracy, although the whole gerrymandering thing certainly wasn't anticipated. To me, it looks like the electoral college splits the two concepts, weighting it somewhat toward population, but not all the way. I'd love to know the mathematical formula.
