The electoral college is fine. The problem is the Winner Takes All system. The founding fathers never intended that.
Ugh, I'm sorry, but I cringe every time somebody says "our founding fathers never intended that". They couldn't possibly foresee the state and needs of the country almost two centuries later, and the social, technological, and environmental complexities of this new globalized world. They were not infallible saints sent from God. We are the ones who have the responsibility of adjusting our laws and systems to cope with the new problems we face.
