Democrats turn to 'faithless electors' in desperate, vain attempt to block Donald Trump presidency

Some desperate Democrats are now calling for a wave of faithless electors, insisting the 538 Chosen Ones must save the country from a President Trump. A citizens' petition on the White House website declares it is "incumbent on the present electors to remedy this existential imperilment to the Republic, moreover the planet, by choosing to elect Hillary R. Clinton to the Office of the President of the United States or any other such qualified candidate for that Office."

It's not going to happen. As of Thursday morning, the petition has barely more than 9,000 signatures. No electors from Republican states have declared they won't vote for Trump. (Before the election, a couple of Washington state electors said they might refuse to vote for Clinton if she won the state, which she did. "No, no, no on Hillary. Absolutely not. No way," said one of then, Robert Satiacum, a Bernie Sanders supporter.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The latest count from the NY Times is that Trump has 306 electoral votes to Clinton's 232. That means 38 electors would have to be coerced into voting against their state voters. 29 states have laws requiring the electors to vote with the state voters, and most of those are states Trump carried.

I would also like to point out that Hillary's edge in the popular vote (presumably illegals voting multiple times, computers switching Trump votes to Hillary, and all those dead voters) is just 1/4 of one percent of all the voters in this election; hardly a mandate to undermine democracy!
