This is the dumbest fucking argument people put forward about keeping the Electoral College, bereft of any actual facts, based solely on the feeling of fucking ignorant idiots of what they believe the "Founders" wanted.
The Electoral College was designed for one purpose only: to make sure slave states—who already had outsized power in the federal government due to the 3/5ths Clause—weren't regularly blown out of the water by free states who had more actual voters in presidential elections.
The Electoral College should have been eliminated after the Civil War; it had already led to at least one Presidency that had lost the popular vote at that point.
