Originally there were 10 electoral college members who were reluctant to vote Trump. Now there are a whopping 29. And their reasons? Quite frankly, they’re pretty amazing. It’s great how many people are uniting against Trump and trying to ensure that this country doesn’t fall into his hands.
That’s why this article has gone so viral and is now considered essential reading in progressive communities. It’s all about grassroots organizing, coalition building, and the best ways to genuinely stop Trump in his tracks! If you consider yourself a progressive and haven’t yet done so, read it now.
The Electors have said that “Separate from Mr. Trump’s own denials of Russian involvement in the election, the confirmed communication between Trump’s aides and those associated with the Russian election interference activity raise serious concerns that must be addressed before we cast our votes.”
Many Americans might not know this, but as New Century Times reports, while Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by almost three million votes, it’s actually the Electoral College that determines the election. And while it’s unusual for electors to cast a vote for a candidate other than the winner of the state he/she is from, the President-elect and his ties to Russia has created an unusual situation.
In fact the Electoral College was designed to prevent a crazy person from coming to power and to protect the security of the country. Thus, this would be a perfect situation for them. If an Electoral College member doesn’t t cast his/her individual vote for Trump, he will not be president.
