The Electoral College works, keep it.
The presidency should be determined by direct national vote.
Plutocrats. You have to control the process by which a person comes to be known as a presidential candidate to achieve a true sense of direct democracy. Just as electorates have representative power, so does the dollar bill, but the dollar bill has more power because a dollar bill puts the candidate on the American menu. You buy into the plutocrats candidate because no one else seems to exist because no one has the money to advertise at that level but the Plutocrats.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
Aside from that, they are national offices ( president and VP) but not national elections. That is why tie breakers go to the House and Senate respectively. Interesting that the House only gives 1 vote for the whole state.
