Trump WINS Michigan: Electoral count now 306

The Constitution does not require electors to vote for or even consider the actual presidential candidates. The final results have not yet been certified, leaving her followers with a hope to reverse Trump's majority if a recount done in the above two states and in Pennsylvania. The election is technically not decided until the electors' vote and then their votes are counted by Congress days after the next session begins in the new year. But that's not stopping people from flooding the electors' inboxes with requests they throw their votes behind Hillary Clinton instead. The constitutionality of state laws concerning electors has never been decided.

I am not against the current president-elect - but we have to eliminate the Electoral College by an amendment to the U.S. Constitution because the majority of voters want their vote to count for the person they select.

They would have to persuade 37 electors to reject Trump, which is seen as highly unlikely.

The Michigan Secretary of State has posted the official presidential vote county showing that Trump won the battleground state by almost 11,000 ballots.

This ability to win more states - but not more votes - and still win the presidency is what also allowed George Bush to defeat Al Gore in 2000.

For example, Florida has 29 electoral votes up for grabs; this is more than Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and West Virginia combined, which only add up to 28 Electoral College votes.

The best figures we can find for the number of votes that require to be overturned so that their College votes go to Mrs. Clinton, are Wisconsin 24,000; Pennsylvania 66,000; and MI 13,000.

Ralph Nader called again November 10 for the elimination of the Electoral College. The National Popular Vote Compact has been approved by 11 states with 165 electoral votes.

9, America was informed that the next president of our country would be Donald J. Trump. If it is passed by states with votes totaling 105 more, winner-take-all rules would be replaced by votes for whoever receives the most direct popular votes nationally.

By January 2020, it should be tossed on the trash heap of history.
