Keep the Electoral College but change it up so that states are not winner take all. Tie the EC votes to the districts, like they do in Maine. It is a more accurate understanding of who wants what. Winning a state 51.1%-49.9% and giving them all the EC votes in that state is not an accurate representation of what the populace wants.
Nothing is stopping more states from doing that right now. States decide how to apportion their electors.

And in response to the OP, if you were looking for a random selection of idiots, the current Congress already has a representative sample of that.

Agreed on both points.
