Tara Ross is the author of The Indispensable Electoral College: How the Founders’ Plan Saves Our Country from Mob Rule.
According to Tara, the Founding Fathers were very wise in creating the Electoral College. This equalized the electoral power of small and large states. It wasn’t a racial maneuver, but rather a means of forcing candidates to pursue the votes of large and small states. While there have been a number of close call elections, where the popular vote winner failed to win the presidency, overall it has prevented larger bouts of unrest from occurring.
