Majority vote without state borders would be how the nation heads toward the Hunger Games.

Sensationalist nonsense.

With roughly 50% voter participation, a presidential candidate could make their case to only the most populous states, visit only the most populous states, and appeal to only the most populous states with the numerous benefits available to spend in their patron states

Under our current system, two thirds of presidential campaign events are in just six states, and 94% of campaign events are in just twelve states. So even accepting the dubious premise that where a candidate "visits" somehow plays a role in the benefits that inure to states from the winning administration, the notion that our current system is any better is laughably false. If anything it's worse because the very few states visited by candidates are not the largest, meaning that under your premise less people are benefiting.
