You posted ideas that run contrary to his beliefs, What do you think?
Could you imagine the Trumpers heads exploding if the Electors went rogue and made it so that Trump didn't get enough Elector votes to win the election?
The one scenario that could still get Hillary into the White House
how many years have we been using the electoral college?....if you dont like it,get it changed,i dont like it either,but i wont cry about the results....
Unh, Luddly, which part of 270 do you not understand, once that threshold has been achived? Math skills and understanding is needed in this excercise and there are no other correct answers. Once 270 is reached by one candidate it is impossible for another candidate to duplicate the feat since there are not 270 remaining. It is impossible even using lib math.
No slanted eyes while reading, go rent yourself a pair..
270 isn't achieved until the electors actually cast their votes on December 19th. Electors in 21 states are not required to cast their votes to the candidate chosen by the people's votes. In the other 29 there is merely a small penalty for not doing so. Hypothetically, despite the popular vote results, all the Electors could get together and decide whomever they want to be POTUS. That's the Electoral College system for you!
I'll be happy to sign it if, when it inevitably goes nowhere, it is rolled up and jammed straight up hillary's ass.
You will receive no argument from me on that point. Every election this topic raises questions that should have been explained to students by the 9th grade of their schooling. Electors are in fact, not required by follow the will of the voting public and can in effect unite behind the person of their choice and declare that person the next President. If that is what Luddly is suggesting then that is what he should write. However, as we practice the voting ritual today, the 270 votes needed to secure the election is still a singular event and cannot be surpassed by more than one candidate how ever you may do the math. Untrustworthy electors are another topic.
