I wrongly used "populace". Sorry. I was referring to those same "electors", who were also initially required to be landowners, and male.

Hmmm...???????????? ?? ;-)

Actually, they didn't. They assumed we were a bunch of ignorant rabble; 
that's why we have indirect elections. We elect the electors and they 
elect the president and vice president. The original idea was that 
Congress was supposed to elect the President and Vice President.
