No. That's not how the Founding Fathers intended the Electoral College to work. At all.
It was intended, not as a winner-take-all system, but as a system much more akin to the Maine-Nebraska method where EC votes would be allocated based
on congressional districts. However, the political parties that arose in the 19th century didn't like that idea and (per usual) attempted to set up a
system where they would be in power always. So now we have a system where the most votes go to the least like candidates, which is exactly the
opposite of the intended design.
