That is not right. It is The United States not These United States. All one country not 50 states. The electoral college was put into place because the Founding Fathers did not want the president elected by common poeple. Sure there is a popular vote but there electoratal voters can say screw them I will vot another way. The Election of 2000 was a case where the president lost the popular vote but won the electoral vote. The Founding Fathers feared the common man. Over time the country has grown more democratic.
Besides that, there are differences between the EU and United States. For one, the EU is an alliance of states. It is also a beaucratic nightmare when compared to the United States.
