It is the Electoral College Vote that determines the presidency, not what voters want! If you convinced every voter in any one state of your choice not to vote for either candidate, the Electoral College Vote would still go to one of the candidates. Our founding fathers figured that the common people were too stupid to choose who should lead the country and thus gave all the real power to a small group of trusted friends and family to decide. These people made up the first Electoral College, and the practice has continued throughout the centuries. Popular vote has no bearing on the Electoral College Vote. Go look at past elections where popular vote was disregarded.
