    ...and they failed.

    And by that, I mean the collective group of people who wield the real power in America despite who win elections: the moneyed elite, the Ivy League graduates, the deep state, the media corporations, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, the people who decide at cocktail parties what's really going to happen, despite the express will of the American people.

    Hillary was their candidate, and they cheated Bernie Sanders out of the nomination using super-delegates and other cheating methods like giving Hillary the answers to debate questions.

    Trump was never supposed to win the Republican nomination, Jeb Bush was the elite's choice, but something happened the elite did not forsee, Trump generated a wave of enthusiasm in people who did not go to the cocktail parties, they lived in the hinterlands which the elites have written off because they consider people who live there to be backwards, for example they still believe in God and go to church.

    So when Trump won, they were shocked and appalled, so they launched a coup d'etat to overthrow him.

    But now, they have nothing, but don't think they will give up, their type believe they are ENTITLED to power and they won't let a small thing like an United States election get in their way.

    And now they're trying to abolish the Electoral College so it never happens again, the little people in Ohio and Pennslyvania will never again have a say in any election, it will all be decided in New York City and Los Angeles.

    The OP seems to think the express will of the American people justifies anything except its expression.

    How did they try to overthrow him exactly?

    By tricking Russians into running an interference campaign?
    By tricking Trump into licking Putin's ass and loving wikileaks while his son held meetings with Kremlin reps. to get dirt on Hillary?
    By Tricking Trump into firing the FBI director which directly lead to special investigator appointment?
    By Tricking Trump into trying to fire special investigator that unltimately cleared him on conspiracy with Russians?

    How?
