The electoral college is not only undemocratic but also fits in with the desires of the Founding Fathers- let the wealthy and well-connected leaders decide on who would be President and NOT the People. The Founding Fathers were afraid of the people "The people is a great beast"-Hamilton-and also of democracy. Four times in our history the candidate with the least votes became President. Is this democratic? No! Are the wishes of the people being followed? No! The electoral college IGNORES the voice of the people. We should do away with the electoral college and follow the voice of the people. The issue should not be about "clout" but rather democracy. And I say this as a person who will vote for Romney.
