Funny how a political cult that proclaims the sanctity of "original intent" is ignorant about the intent of the Electoral College. It is to prevent unwise popular passion from selecting an unfit executive.
From Federalist Paper 68:
It was also peculiarly desirable to afford as little opportunity as possible to tumult and disorder. This evil was not least to be dreaded in the election of a magistrate, who was to have so important an agency in the administration of the government as the President of the United States. But the precautions which have been so happily concerted in the system under consideration, promise an effectual security against this mischief. The choice of SEVERAL, to form an intermediate body of electors, will be much less apt to convulse the community with any extraordinary or violent movements, than the choice of ONE who was himself to be the final object of the public wishes.
Thats right. The Electoral College exists specifically to thwart an "extraordinary or violent movement" that might directly select one unfit person.
If the Electoral College does not do its duty this year, fulfilling the specific reason it was created, then it should be abolished.
