If it's so great, why don't we do it a state level? Or for other Federal positions, like US Senators or Representatives?

You as an individual have no right to an Electoral vote. It is a question of accumulated votes.

Familiarize yourself with your voting system.

In democracy you win some and you lose some, that's why it is called democracy.

1) Depending on which state you live in, your electors may already be for Hillary. 2) Electors represent the popular vote in your state. Period. 3) This election is over.

The peaceful transition of power is both essential and one of the many hallmarks of our great nation.

YOU, "guest", are the most foolish individual I've had the misfortune to read; WHAT MAKES YOU THINK A PURELY POPULAR VOTE WILL CAUSE SOME STATES TO BE IGNORED?!?!?!  The popular vote will simply be the cumulative of the NATION, not state by state!

Moron.

The Electoral College is the best idea our founding fathers ever had.  If we eliminate it, politicians would only go to the large states and ignore the smaller states.  In other words, about 80% of the states would never have any influence on elections.  This most definitely is not a stupid, outdated idea.  It is a brilliant idea.  Your comment about it is what is incredibly stupid!

The electoral college is a stupid, outdated idea and should be abolished. It was created in a time when the only media were the newspapers and most voters would never see the candidates. We are overexposed to the candidates now so the electorate serves no purpose. I resent that someone else is allowed to cast a vote that supposedly represents mine. The popular vote should be the deciding factor. And all minor parties should be on the ballot in every state. I am tired of this rigged two-party-only system.
