  1. The "problem" with the electoral college isn't that it is not a popular vote.
    It was never intended to be a popular vote.
    They didn't trust the people.

    Some states didn't want to be made irrelevant by the states with much higher population such as Virginia at the time.
    Why you have the compromise with the house of representatives where small states also get more votes than more populous ones.
    My ruling would be that the electors would have the right as a function of the constitution to vote on whomever they wanted with respect to the age and birth-limitations.

  2. So the electoral college Hass to represent the people of his state. There can’t be a rogue individual who decides to do whatever he wants. This means that every man and every state will be represented. In California New York one determine the outcome

  3. The electoral collage is intended to protect the minority of people. It ensures that no one candidate can win by popular vote alone. Think of it this way, if your and your friends are the only people who want something to happen then the electoral collage makes it to where your voice can actually be heard. It gives the minority a leg to stand on.
