Do you think people who are "electors" have the right to vote against who people voted for?


Christopher Suprun, a Texan and a Republican is one of the 538 people chosen to be "electors" - meaning one of those who will cast their vote in the Electoral College in a few weeks. Mr. Suprun is making headlines stating he will not carry out the will of the voters and cast a vote for Donald Trump. Do you agree with him? America's way of choosing elected officials is under the microscope now and many who oppose Trump think this is just fine. What if it were the other way around? Remember that once something is done, both sides can use it - ask Harry Reid if his nuclear option sounds good

    The President doesn't try to get the majority of the votes - they try to get the Majority of the Electoral College votes, so your argument is invalid.

    AP - Keep dreaming but it isn't going to happen. I would have thought by now you would have calmed down a little but guess not.

    Tamara, it is interesting that the violence created by Donald Duck and his cronies is not an issue for you - as well as the misogyny and hate speech he spewed. Essentially he did NOT get the popular vote.
