Yes but just pointing out our country wasn't setup to be majority rule and for specific reasons. Actually no one got to vote directly for president in those days so saying without letting the slaves vote is a little misleading. IIRC, locals voted for electors, I'm actually not even sure if they voted for the electors, they may have voted for state legislatures who picked the electors. I do know until 1913 the state legislatures chose the senators for that state. Yes pretty much. People don't seem to understand how recent it is that people cast a vote for the president directly. And the electoral college needs some tweaking or change or something, but it's not a total dumpster fire like many like to portray it as.
