I don't think they intended that 30% of the white men could control 70% of the Senate. They wanted the minority to have an outsized vote, but when there were only 13 states, it would have been nearly impossible for this kind of imbalance. But when you have all of these low population western states, not to mention Alaska, it gives them way more than ever intended.
