The US is a Republic (representative democracy), not a full on Democracy. The US was never meant to be a full on Democracy either. If they remove the Electoral College, then the elections would be determined by New York and California, and that would disenfranchise the smaller population states all across the US, actually convincing many that their only choice is succession.
remove the electoral college and have a direct popular vote....the 'smaller' states have way too much power as it is

No they do not, since the electoral votes per state depends on the population of the state. What you want is that they have no power at all, no say in the running of the country, and will then feel that there is no reason for them to be a part of the country. The Electoral College is an absolutely brilliant way of insuring that each state is represented in the election for President. Hillary knew what was at stake, and should have sought out those rust-belt voters to solidify her candidacy, instead she ignored them and well she sees the consequences. The Democratic party should learn from this mistake, use the knowledge to win the mid-term elections and the next presidential election. I doubt that will happen though, because it seems many of them lack any sort of self-reflection capability. They are looking for an external answer, when the answer is internal.

Votes are still being counted in the 2016 election as absentee ballots come in, and Hillary Clinton‘s share of the popular vote is still widening.

The current official results show Clinton with half a percentage point of a lead over Donald Trump, and as the ballots come in, it is clear that the lead will only widen, especially with 4 million votes yet to be counted in California alone.
