Here's how the electoral college helps you.  "Americans, if you live in a "safe state" (about two-thirds of the population does), now's your chance to rock the boat and make your vote count."  Heck, if you live in a swing state, and you understand the lesser of two evils to still be evil, tick the box for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein or one of the other options anyway, as at the margin, your vote is unlikely to affect the outcome.  You're not going to get what you want, but picking the lesser evil isn't going to give you what you want either.
