Thanks. I'm by no means an expert in the mechanics of the presidential election. This just seems shady to me. Could the Clinton's offer them a deal they can't refuse?


I'm sure they could try , alas if that was to happen the outcome nationwide would be utterly unpredictable and most likely absolutely devastating to the country. Not much point to be the president of a smoldering ruin.

hillary would need more than 20 republican electorates to change sides. I think historically there has been 1? I have a hard time with the idea that the people who voted for Trump to win those electoral votes sitting quietly while being disenfranchised. You think there are riots now? Wait until this happens...

That's what I was thinking as well. Maybe that's the plan.


That would be a stupid plan. Conservatives have all the guns.

Maybe that's what they're after by doing this? (My tin foil is tingling)

You know I'm too young to properly remember the Bush-Gore election, I was 10 at the time, but I can't help but imagine similar discussions taking place back then.

Relax. Trump will be your next President. You the people won. They lost.

I keep feeling like another shoe is going to drop.


I think we'll have a whole collection the next 4 years.

In the 21 states without legal reinforcement of the Will of the People, I suppose. The ensuing election fraud and tampering charges would likely see people jailed for quite some time, as well as Clinton being impeached on day 1, however. (Remember, Kaine would take the big chair in the scenario, which means a lot of Dems would vote to impeach, too.)

The other certainty is that the House would object to the faithless votes, as would the Senate, voting to reject that state's vote. Assuming neither candidate reached 270, the House would vote to select the POTUS (from the top 3 national vote getting candidates... Trump, Hillary, and Johnson) and the Senate would select the Veep.

They changed the graphic, but it shows trump only
slightly under her now in pop vote with Michigan still
grey. When that populates, he will be at 306 and
exceed her in pop vote.

ETA: Michigan reports the hold up on declaring for Trump
lies with ....the media.

When asked why media outlets have not called Michigan
for Trump Secretary of State spokesman Fred Woodhams
said "You would have to ask the media outlets that question".

Actual vote count is 13,107 more votes for Trump, not being a close
enough margin to trigger a recount.

No, he's almost 400,000 votes behind.

I don't like it. That's going to fuel a lot of rage. No, I don't agree with using it to fuel rage -- we all consented to vote under the EC system. But we are talking about rabid, violent people that will use any excuse to cause trauma.

It doesn't matter, the Republican may have lost the popular vote but they won most of the states, giving their party total control of government.

That means that Hillary never stood a chance at all.

I dont think that Michigan is in that number.

I edited my above post, Michigan is reporting that the
media is delaying the outcome of the 16 electoral votes
and his pop votes from that state.

Intentional?

Yes.....

The electors don't vote until December 19th. Which means they may still be open to influence.

It would be bad for them if they went against their state, no doubt, but not illegal. And nothing a few pardons due to error and a giant petition couldn't fix.

The role of the electoral votes


Are there restrictions on who the Electors can vote for?

There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their states. Some states, however, require Electors to cast their votes according to the popular vote. These pledges fall into two categories—Electors bound by state law and those bound by pledges to political parties.

The U.S. Supreme Court has held that the Constitution does not require that Electors be completely free to act as they choose and therefore, political parties may extract pledges from electors to vote for the parties' nominees. Some state laws provide that so-called "faithless Electors" may be subject to fines or may be disqualified for casting an invalid vote and be replaced by a substitute elector. The Supreme Court has not specifically ruled on the question of whether pledges and penalties for failure to vote as pledged may be enforced under the Constitution. No Elector has ever been prosecuted for failing to vote as pledged.

Today, it is rare for Electors to disregard the popular vote by casting their electoral vote for someone other than their party's candidate. Electors generally hold a leadership position in their party or were chosen to recognize years of loyal service to the party. Throughout our history as a nation, more than 99 percent of Electors have voted as pledged.

I understand how the electoral votes work.

I am just concerned that the popular vote difference is going to result in further violence and unrest from Democratic protestors.

I think there is a fine for most faithless electors...like $1000. Money Hillary could cover for them easily.

Is not the first time we have an elected president that have not won the popular vote.

What is going in the streets with the protest is a calculated and manipulated planned event that have big money behind it.

The people behind the protest wants death, chaos and riots they want to damage our nations smooth election transition that has always been the envy of many nations around the world.

Radicalism has infiltrated our nation and we should be very worry.

I have a great deal of respect for you for saying that. (Although considering this is the internet, i doubt my respect carries any weight haha.) You're probably one of the only people who would say it and you're 100% right
