dhellew3--YOU ARE WRONG, the people of the state cast their ballots for candidate of their choice, that selects the electoral delegates who will proceed to cast THEIR ballots for the candidate the people selected--in a couple of states there are delegates who have option to cast vote for a different candidate but is NOT the normal action taken. The electoral college EXISTS to keep California, New York and Texas from selecting the president EVERY ELECTION. The states with the MOST people would DOMINATE elections EVERY TIME--those three states have the most people--candidates only have to win their states popular vote to win presidency on typical election, Founding Fathers designed electoral college to MAKE EVERY STATE RELEVANT!
