CIVICS 101 -How the U.S.A. elects its President

A brief primer on how it all works

........But the Electoral College system also persists because despite its shortcomings, there are several reasons to recommend it. Supporters of the system point out that the framers of the Constitution considered several other possibilities, but settled on this one for its advantages: It helps ensure political stability by making it difficult for third party candidates to become president; it gives rural areas and small states more power, better distributing political clout across the country; and it encourages a federal system of representation.

one of the commenters to this post says that this is not true because at the time of the writing, there was not a 2 party system.

Any input on this?
