Not sure I get what you mean. The founders had no intention to have individuals vote for any president. Rather, they only intended the people to vote for electors to go to the capital and vote based on their own knowledge and wisdom.Neither did the founders have any intention to have electoral votes distributed through Congressional districts. The two Constitutional options are direct popular vote within a State or a vote by its legislature. Invalidating the popular vote for President is not one of them.Invalidating the popular vote of their citizens is irrelevant. The founders had no intention to have electors be bound to the popular vote of citizens.
