    Will the Electoral College vote for Hilary on 12/19?

    People are signing a petition to do away with the Electoral College, or asking them to vote for Hilary because she won the popular vote.  Will they get their way?  What are the chances?

    Oh Gawd, I hope not. That would be the worst of all possible worlds. I didn't vote for Trump but I respect the system as flawed as it is.

    Such Liberal hyperbole.  Some Liberals are becoming insane-time for the straight jacket.  Trump IS PRESIDENT, not Clinton.  Time for these people to accept this.   My advice: Liberals, GROW THE HELL UP!   Accept that Trump has won, he isn't the Satan portrayed by more extreme Liberals.

    They can PETITION all they want- Trump is in.  The Electoral College isn't going away.  I thought authoritarianism was a Conservative mindset, now Liberals are becoming MORE AUTHORITARIAN than Conservatives can ever be.  Shut up & stop the whining, Liberals.  Put on your BIG KIDS' pants.   As a Liberal, this behavior is appalling.  Trump is the fresh air that America needs.  The Liberal hyperbole regarding Trump is even more ridiculous than the Conservative hyperbole regarding Obama.

    I heard one member of the Electoral College say he did not care how many people voted for Hillary that he would not vote for her. 
    Robert Satiacum, a member of the Washington State Electoral College said that he will not vote for Clinton even if Clinton wins his state’s popular vote, he told the Associated Press.
    Were all the members of the Electoral College picked by Republican in the Senate and Congress.

    This will be a chance to stop another hitler from worming into the presidency. Will they do it?
    If it wasn't for James Comey (pronounced "commi") Clinton would have won.

    While Electors are free to vote their conscience in some states, 20 of them would have to do this to swing the vote in Hillary's favor. I can see one or two doing it as a form of protest, but I don't think it will change the outcome of the election.

    Since this is the second time in 16 years that the winner of the popular vote didn't win the Electoral College, I opted to sign the petition that asks the Electoral College be abolished. Not for this election, but for the future, so "one person, one vote" can be the reality, rather than the fallacy.

    No, especially since with today's updated vote totals he won both the popular vote by several hundred thousand votes and the electoral college count by a massive margin.
