The Electoral College was formed as a way that the individual state representatives would vote for the President of the United States. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Electoral_College This Wikipedia article states there were several reasons that the popular vote would not be effective, I believe that the Founding Fathers did not believe the citizenry was not smart enough to select the President and Vice-President. This is further supported when you consider how U.S. Senators were selected. This selection was not by popular vote but by the respective State Legislators http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Senate

A Gallup poll was conducted with the following determination as to whether or not the U.S.A. needed “rich people.” These rich people, the top 5% of the people, pay 60% of the total taxes; whereas, the bottom 50% of the working class only pay 3%. The non-working class receive tax dollars without the need to work. The federal government would not be able to meet their financial obligations without the rich people. The Gallop poll showed that 20% of the Republicans, 41% of the Independents and 54% of the Democrats believe that these rich people and their tax dollars are NOT needed. I would also remind these electorates that these rich people own or control large companies that hire the working class.

I believe that these electorates are ignorant of these many facts, and if known, are truly stupid.
