If the Electoral College ever had any REAL purpose it was to allow maybe more INFORMED people to make the decision rather than the flawed electoral methodology.
On the ELECTORAL College Alexander Hamilton said in Federalist No. 68:
“It was equally desirable, that the immediate election should be made by men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station, and acting under circumstances favorable to deliberation, and to a judicious combination of all the reasons and inducements which were proper to govern their choice. A small number of persons, selected by their fellow-citizens from the general mass, will be most likely to possess the information and discernment requisite to such complicated investigations.”
In 2016 we have the problem that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote majority, Donald Trump is an admitted felon - having bragged about attacking women:
Ø He is currently under indictment for RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) CHARGES in Federal Court (Monday November 28, 2016) and State Court on Trump University.
Ø His Trump Foundation has been exposed by the Washington Post as a FRAUD self serving vehicle to enrich Donald Trump - the newspaper that exposed Watergate.
Ø 13 women have come forward with credible accounts of having been assault, Donald Trump has admitted to bragging about assaulting woman.
Ø This is all in advance of an unfinished tax audit that clearly has $1,000,000,000 dollar tax deduction to justify. Not to mention 6 bankruptcies of mass multi-billion-dollar proportions.
These are not made up campaign issues. These are REAL ISSUES. And by all able accounts is Hillary Clinton is clearly the better candidate.
We need to use the Electoral College for the purpose it was ORIGINALLY intended to correct the clear errors of any election!!!!! It is possible unprecedented, but it can be done.
The following is an excerpt from The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)
"The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is proud to acknowledge its role in the Presidential election process. NARA's Office of the Federal Register (OFR) acts as the administrator of the Electoral College on behalf of the states, the Congress, and the American people."

Summary of Key Dates for the 2016 Presidential Election
DECEMBER 19, 2016
The Electors meet in their state and vote for President and Vice President on separate ballots. The electors record their votes on six "Certificates of Vote," which are paired with the six remaining Certificates of Ascertainment.
The electors sign, seal, and certify six sets of electoral votes. A set of electoral votes consists of one Certificate of Ascertainment and one Certificate of Vote. These are distributed immediately as follows: one set to the President of the Senate (the Vice President) for the official count of the electoral votes in January; two packages to the Secretary of State in the state where the electors met—one is an archival set that becomes part of the public record of the Secretary of State's office and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes; two packages to the Archivist—one is an archival set that becomes part of the permanent collection at the National Archives and Records Administration and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes; and one set to the presiding judge in the district where the Electors met—this is also a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes.
I would also suggest that the Electoral College then be abolished by constitutional amendment so that NEVER again can the "popular vote" be over ridden by CROOKED Electoral College.
We APPARENTLY need a constitutional amendment to END the judicial sanction of malice, corruption, dishonesty, sincere ignorance, conscientious stupidity and Incompetence
