The System of Electing the President

This system has many problems. To understand these problems first we will have to understand this system.
An institute known as the Electoral College elects the President and the Vice President of the United States indirectly. There are several possible systems that are present to elect the president of the US and Electoral College is one of them. Other ideas are-
"Committee of Eleven" in the Constitutional Convention proposed an indirect election of the president by a system College of Electors. The election of the president is similar to the election of Pope in the Roman Catholic Church. The function of the College of Electors in choosing the president is the same as the function of the College of Cardinals electing the Pope. The structure of the Electoral College can be mapped out to the Centurial Assembly system of the Roman Republic. According to this system, the adult male citizens of Rome were divided, according to their wealth, into groups of 100 and this group of 100 is called Centuries. Each group of 100 was allowed to cast only one vote either in favor or against proposals submitted to them by the Roman Senate. In the Electoral College system, the States work as the Centurial groups but they are not based on wealth. The size of each state Congressional delegation determines the number of votes per State.
The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. the number of U.S. House members (435) plus the number of U.S. Senators (100) plus the electors for the District of Columbia (3). a majority of which (270 in total) a candidate must win in order to become president. Most states (48 in all) use a simple winner-take-all decision rule — the candidate with the most votes in the election gets all of that state’s electoral votes. Two states (Maine and Nebraska) use a proportional system to divide electoral votes according to the total number of votes each candidate has won.
