Neither the constitution or the 12th amendment says anything about electors being pledged to a candidate. The idea was to have honest,experienced, and wise electors who would survey the field of candidates and cast their votes for the one they felt best qualified. There could be several candidates from various states and the one with the most votes wins if he has a majority, or the top 5 are voted on by the congress. This removes the animosity of a population split 50/50 on my candidate or party
