The reason that the electoral college developed was that our contry was made up
of thirteen unique states, each wanting to preserve their independent voice.
The concept of one country, as opposed to an organization of states, came later...
The occasion of 'disloyal' electors is few and far between.Correct! The elector who submitted tallies contrary to the concerned state's ballot count
wouldn't last long...
Most states utilize the winner take all methodI thought they ALL did...!!
The electoral college, like the two houses of the legislative branch, is a product of
compromise by the founding fathers. It is a basic tenet of the Constitution, and would
require an amendment to the Constitution to change it...Not very likely!
