They are all little blends of democracy... A true democracy is just too inefficient to function for large populations. That is why america is split into 2 levels for presidency: popular and electoral.

groups of people are stupid. The founders knew this, and that's why the electoral college exists.

The only time in history that the electorals have voted differently than the popular was busch vs gore, and even then it was 49.99/50.01 for popular.

False, it has actually happened four times; Jackson vs. Adams, Tilden vs. Hayes, Cleveland vs. Harrison, and finaly the infamous Gore vs. Bush. Still though it is a pretty rare occurrence.
