Is it worth it to vote if the electoral votes Ultimately matter most?

Yes, because the popular vote determines the electoral vote. In 48 states, plus Washington DC, the candidate who gets the most popular votes wins all of the state's electoral votes. In Nebraska and Maine they give two votes to overall winner in the state and then they award the rest based on who won each of the state's Congressional districts.

You're vote determines who gets the Electoral votes! In some states winner-takes-all (Electoral votes). In others, Electoral votes are apportioned proportionally to one extent or another. The direct Democracy happens within the states.
The Framers DID NOT WANT a few large population centers deciding the president for the whole country. The US among other things is a federation. The (federal) states vote for the president. Although allowances are made for state populations.

Of course it is. How do you think it is decided who is chosen as electors? BTW there is no such thing as electoral votes.

Um, your vote decides which electors are chosen for your state. It's fundamentally no different than voting for a member of Congress who then votes on legislation.

Of course. We are a republic of fifty states for a reason. And it really matters very little because what would happen in a popular vote is that all the disenfranchised Republicans in CA would actually vote.
