The same argument comes up every 4 years - the electoral college doesn't make any sense. It creates a weird circumstance where your vote PRETTY MUCH doesn't matter, since most states give all their votes to only one candidate, even in the case of a 49-51 split. It's not unlikely for candidates to win the electoral college while losing the popular vote! And that's not even considering the voting power differences between states (Wyoming votes are - for some reason - the most powerful voters in the country).
And, most importantly, electors (who actually cast votes in the electoral college) can ignore the popular vote in their state and vote for whomever they want - such as the Minnesota elector who voted for "John Ewards" in 2004.
Way to tell it like it is, Adam!
