Electoral College

While it is true we vote for president. We do not do this directly. We vote for Electors who then vote for president.  Let us take a look at how the electoral college works. There are 538 electors to match the number of senators 100 and representatives 435 plus 3 for Washington D.C. We have the electoral college because our founding fathers did not trust the popular vote.
