So most people here think that Electric is a better defensive type than Grass?

Electric is a better defensive type than Grass because there's an easy way to cover its one weakness: Air Balloon.

But weaknesses don't matter as much as you think it does. Grass just simply has better resists that can allow it to switch into things, the goal of most defensive Pokemon.

Grass is also weak to both Ice and Fire, two of the most common offensive types.

Resisting water is pretty useful though.

This is my main reason for not using Grass as a defensive type :P

Yea, but Steel is weak to three very common types yet it's considered to be by far the best defensive type for a reason. The resists it has.

Obviously Grass isn't nearly as good as Steel as a defensive type but the resists Grass has are pretty huge. Electric, Water and Ground are very nice types to be able to resist. And since most Fire/Ice types moves aren't used by Fire/Ice Pokemon those moves don't have that STAB factor most of the time. So Grass types might be able to live a Fire/Ice most once or twice.
