Because the Founding Fathers were scared silly about putting real power in the hands of the great unwashed (which, to be fair, was significantly illiterate, ill-informed and unfamiliar with the whole concept of self-government in the late 1700s), they concluded that the states would elect presidents rather than having a popular vote of the citizens.
