    I actually alluded to that happening last month on my Facebook page. A friend just text me and told me that the buzz this morning is that experts are considering that a strong possibility. Has anyone else heard that today on TV?

    Happened in 2000, Gore won by a half a million votes but republicans didn't seem to bitch about it then, maybe this time they will get behind efforts to circumvent the electoral college on a state-by-state level.

    Yeah but if it had been a popular vote that controlled the outcome in 2000 they would have had to count all the vote and then do a recount of all the votes. Imagine that cluster.
