Electoral Collage vs. Popular Vote

It seems every Presidential election brings about calls for having a popular vote versus the current Electoral Collage.  The reasons for the Electoral Collage are not very well understood and it seems not well taught in schools, hence the confusion.  Several constituents have contacted me to support legislation for popular vote.  I do not support such a movement for Presidential elections. The reasons are several and center around the very wise compromise designed by the founding fathers who were very suspicious of an overpowering government and a potential tyrannical simple majority.  I’ve found a very good and simple video that describes the process and reasons for it on You Tube.  Please feel free to click on this link and hear the explanation.
