...and you'll care about the constitution up until the first evidence of a violation of the emoluments clause, at which point you will pretend it does not exist.
Also, the electoral college primarily exists to introduce the electors. The power of state governments (as opposed to the actual occupants of the states) was supposed to be preserved in the Senate, but this turned out to be such a bad idea that the people dragged their governments kicking and screaming into letting the people elect the Senate, which still preserves protection of regional concerns -- it just ignores those of state legislators because they proved themselves to be too irresponsible to hold this power. At least the power of state government bodies to determine the apportionment of the electors will suffer the same fate eventually... whether we throw out the safeguard of the electors themselves in the process is another matter.
It's kind of a silly argument to be making at this time, considering how badly the system has backfired... those supposedly too ignorant to be trusted to elect a president voted in majority for a qualified candidate, and only because of this system has an untenable administration been elected. It did the exact opposite of what it was supposed to do.
