To offset the disproportionment of area versus population density the electoral college was established to give representive districts voting members to cast the majority vote in their area.

    This system has worked as intended for the majority of years it has been installed. There has been 5 instances where the popular vote and electoral vote differed.

    The representive process has been in place for many years and both the Representive and Senate are elected by popular votes within their areas.

    The college is also done by popular vote within it own areas as well.

    The last election was a good example of how the college represented the majority of the country rather than the smaller segment of the country with high population density.

    This I don't get.
    I've heard "government of the people, by the people, for the people", never of a government based on acreage.
    Sounds like the electoral college were created to protect the interests of large land owners.
    And now aren't the lines moved constantly so the party in power can "arrange" the way the votes come out?
    Better to lose 1 vote 80-20 and win 2 51-49?

    Go read up on it. It has nothing to do with acreage.

    You can't divide the planet into First, Second and Third World and then claim that all peoples and cultures are equal.
