Ezra Klein thinks the United States...

...Senate "wildly overrepresents small, rural states." From his blog today (my emphasis):

During the first Congress, Virginia, the largest state, was roughly 12 times the size of Delaware, which was, at the time, the smallest state. Today, California is 66 times the size of Wyoming. 

That makes the Senate five times less proportionate today than it was at the founding.
