If the electoral college was established in 1787 why didn't the Democratic Party get rid of it all these years if it's so bad?

    Andre L, please think before you speak. You throw out an insult and then quote someone who criticizes those who insult...beautiful...you called yourself an intellectual coward...

    You need a 2/3rds vote in the senate to get rid of it

    It isnt bad. Thats Hillary Clinton's influence on her obedient cult followers. She is evil and wants revenge and trying to up-end the government and get rid of Mr. Trump. She is behind this campaign of terror by the Democrats.

    Because for most of American history it worked relatively well.  Following the election of 1800, the electoral college became a rubber stamp for the will of the people.  That's all it's supposed to do.  And it has mostly functioned in that capacity.  Sure, it creates distortions where candidates pay more attention to some states because of the EC, but it's fundamental job was mostly performed okay.  The candidate who got the most votes ended up becoming President.  But things are different now.  We've had two elections in less than twenty years where the losing candidate, the one who most Americans rejected at the polls, ended up becoming President.  That's a fundamental miscarriage of justice and shows that the system is broken.  It simply doesn't serve any function anymore and needs to go.
