National Polls Don't Matter

Here is what I don't really get: Why do people focus so much on national poll numbers for presidential elections? We don't elect the president directly. It's all about the electoral college.

CNN's Electoral Map Calculator is a nice visual. You can make your own guesses about the outcome or look at other people's guesses. The campaigns must have this sit up all the time.
