The Electoral College is made out of people!


The Monday after the second Wednesday in December.

Yes, and they do what they have been told to do.

Paul Ryan has been reelected with Trumps consent.

No fireworks. The ranks are closing.

Four years of going back to the 50s ... or broken promises.

I buy a pallet of popcorn.

Needs more swearing and personal attacks. Also at least two derails and a possible shreveport train-wreck.

Are you suggesting that the EC is a big saucage factory?

I'm suggesting that these people could be persuaded to vote in a way that does not embarrass them.

3/5ths is enough to count, right? I think I read that in the Constitution somewhere....

An electoral college voter wrote:
Hi, I'm a Republican who has been loyal and active in the party for years. As such, I am being rewarded by going to Washington DC to take part in the electoral college vote. I am a representative of my party and my state voted to have Donald Trump be their president.


But I will vote for Hillary and go against the will of my state and my party, because I don't want to be embarrassed.


You might want to sit down and draw out a flowchart.

Electors meet in their respective state capitals (electors for the District of Columbia meet within the District) on the Monday after the second Wednesday in December, at which time they cast their electoral votes on separate ballots for president and vice president.

I seriously doubt they would vote for Hillary. What kind of idiot would think that?
