After much contemplation on the matter, I came to the conclusion that the best and most accurate way to elect a president would be popular vote by state. In that process, the individuals would elect who they will vote for as a state. This would essentially be the way a Governor is chosen. The State would then vote a single vote based upon the popular vote. Each states has equal weight on the matter of who runs the country, as each state should. The only thing I have not decided on is the way to break any tie vote. Perhaps it could be done use the majority vote of the territories.

It's really a sad state of politics that when the ballot says "Romney" or "Obama" and you put your mark, you're NOT actually voting for the person that you made the mark by.
The electoral college means that even candidates who win the popular vote nationally by large margins (such as Al Gore in 2000) might not get elected.
