Why Not the Popular Vote?

America’s Founding Fathers knew the popular vote alone would too easily lapse into the abuse of minorities by the majority. This has occurred  in simple democracies throughout history.

Therefore they designed the poorly understood, but essential Electoral College for America.

I recently had a debate with a smart individual who appeared to have no understanding of the value of the Electoral College. Therefore, I am posting this primer on this topic as evidence of the genius of our Founding Fathers and the benefits of the Electoral College to America.

Please see this very good explanation:
