I kind of understand the electoral college. Like obviously there are going to be problems counting all the votes. So they try to simplify the process by electing people to elect. The time delay also makes it so a post-popular election nutcase doesn't get into office. However, its bullshit that if a state with a ton of electoral votes splits 49% to 51% then the person with 51% of the vote gets all of the electoral votes for the state. they should get as close to 51% as possible.
But seriously, we need to go by the popular vote.
And the results should not be announced until all the voting booths are closed and counted.
