This is a time for people to come together against Trump. A recent viral article laid out the best ways for progressives to effectively unite and build coalitions against Trump, and it has become a must-read for progressives everywhere. If you want to stop Trump, you have to read this.
But something quite remarkable is the way that the Electoral College has been coming through, and there’s actually a distinct chance that they could be heroes at this critical moment. That’s right, they may well prove that they are helping us to dump Trump!
A Harvard law professor has said that “Obviously, whether an elector ultimately votes his or her conscience will depend in part upon whether there are enough doing the same. We now believe there are more than half the number needed to change the result seriously considering making that vote.”
And so “The 538 members of the Electoral College – 306 Republicans and 232 Democrats – will gather in their state capitals on Dec. 19 and cast the official vote for president. If all Republican electors support Trump, he’d easily clear the 270-vote threshold he needs to become president. That’s why anti-Trump activists are lobbying to convince 37 Republicans to rebel against Trump.”
This is all of course way more critical after the Russia information. But let’s not lose sight of this one thing: there is yet hope!
