  1. ‘In 1787, the Founding Fathers worried that the people might elect a demagogue, or someone who would appeal to their emotions and facilitate the creation and execution of laws based on fear or anger. The founders assumed the electors in the Electoral College would just be “unfaithful” to the voters if they voted for someone unqualified.’ Unfortunately by using the Electoral College system a ‘a demagogue, or someone who would appeal to their emotions and facilitate the creation and execution of laws based on fear or anger’ was elected. just what the ‘Founding Fathers’ did not want to occur.

    Curious, yes.
