It is more clear than ever that voters REJECTED Donald Trump and his extremist positions. Hillary has passed the two million mark in more ballots cast for her. The electors clarly should do the honorable thing and respect the country's will and vote for hillary, not Trump.
The Electoral College Was Designed To Protect Slavery
Another argument that slavery was the core reason for the college. I tend to go for this view.
The people at large was in his opinion the fittest in itself. It would be as likely as any that could be devised to produce an Executive Magistrate of distinguished Character. The people generally could only know & vote for some Citizen whose merits had rendered him an object of general attention & esteem. There was one difficulty however of a serious nature attending an immediate choice by the people. The right of suffrage was much more diffusive in the Northern than the Southern States; and the latter could have no influence in the election on the score of the Negroes. The substitution of electors obviated this difficulty and seemed on the whole to be liable to the fewest objections.
