Why do we have the electoral college? The results of the 2016 election in two simple to understand images.......

While the first graphic is the results of the 2016 election showing an overwhelming sea of red (Trump) votes; the second is a very simple, easy to understand version I saw in multiple places on social media.  Although there is a lengthy explanation about the electoral college, why we need it and how it is one of our checks and balances in our election process; this little image makes it so simplified that even a 5 year old should be able to follow it.
