They feared it because they didnt want dim wit joe dirt kicker from setting the country into a path that only pertained to him or his kind. That is why only people who where of a certain age, white, male, and who owned land (the brightest people in the eyes of the founding fathers because of preceieved supporitity of white males and also because usually those people usually where literate and smart due to being able to own land and live that long in the new world). The electoral college came into play to balance out and mitigate the expansion of the colonies and the fear that larger states with a bigger, rural, less educated populaces would not get the final say over the smaller but more densly populated and much more educated northeast.
