the reasoning behind the electoral college

Some of the ongoing debate about the T.S. election and proposals
subsequently circulating made me think of an article I read in
DISCOVER MAGAZINE many years ago. It discusses the mathematics behind
and the reasons for the electoral college in the U.S. presidential
elections. It makes a good case that such a system preserves the
rights of minority groups much better than a direct national election

There are many copies of the article on the internet. One link to it I
found has some interesting discussion attached. It's worth reading and
may contribute some ideas to the current discussion.
