I see responses that completely miss the problem with the electoral college, and why this article is relevant. Approximately 80 percent of voters live in some 125 metropolitan areas, yet they are underrepresented with the electoral college. Why should those least interested in the twenty-first century have more influence than those who live in this century. From infrastructure to civil rights, the solutions to problems are in urban regions, not out in the country. Under the current circumstance, this represents tyranny of the minority, which is why we have the least qualified candidate by every rational standard as president for the coming four years.
