Should presidential elections be decided by the popular vote, or by the electoral college?

I don't find the EC very democracy-friendly at all. It keeps our screwed up two-party system strong.

That's about where I am on this.

I used to say popular vote, but now I think it would ramp up illegal voting to epidemic proportions.

Dump the electoral college, install proportional representation for House voting (continue FPTP for Senate voting).

I say no electoral college, and institute range or approval voting.

It should be in true democratic sense and by the people, by people who you don't trust to vote for you

The EC is the best way to ensure everyone not living in CA, TX, FL, NC, OH, and IL has a snowball's chance in Hell to be contacted and invited to support a candidate by the candidate.
