Let's give the World Series to the Indians because they scored more total runs than the Cubs.

    I can't take credit for this great analogy, it was a member of the Texas Electoral college. But what clearer way to express the absurdity of what the Left is proposing? Brilliant. You enter a contest with rules. The parties agree to the rules. Then you play and you win or lose based on the rules. If there is a problem, then you fix the rules for the NEXT CONTEST not the one you just played. Game over.

    Delegates in a primary are not electoral college votes. They aren't chosen the same way and they have different rules. Comparing apples and oranges is about the best you can do. Electoral college votes have not been cast yet, and are individually controlled only and completely by the person that holds each of the 538 votes.

    Some states have laws requiring the electors to follow the will of the people, so no.

    Casting a vote that half of the people in the state oppose doesn't sound like following the will of the people, but yes, some states have laws requiring the EC members to cast their votes as predetermined. The vote still belongs to him and he can cast it as he sees fit, or not cast it at all. There is a relatively small fine assessed for being what is known as a Faithless Elector.

    Latch onto whatever little pipe dream you have left. It's over. You lost.
