On Fox News Sunday today (12/18/16), Juan Williams said he read a book and learned that the intent of the founders was for the electors to use the own judgment as to the fitness of a person to be president.
Well, not exactly, Mr. Williams. According to U.S. Law, Electors are appointed according to the laws of the respective states.
What is the difference between the winner-takes-all rule and proportional voting, and which states follow which rule? Reference: National Archives – The Electoral College FAQ
The District of Columbia and 48 states have a winner-takes-all rule for the Electoral College. In these States, whichever candidate receives a majority of the popular vote, or a plurality of the popular vote (less than 50 percent but more than any other candidate), takes all of the state’s Electoral votes.
Only two states, Nebraska and Maine, do not follow the winner-takes-all rule. In those states, there could be a split of Electoral votes among candidates through the state’s system for proportional allocation of votes…”
270 is the official “winner take all” threshold and Donald Trump won 306.
Do Democrats know the law? Of course, they do. But let’s keep in mind that the Democrat Party no longer represents legitimate society. It is the party of progressive elites in Hollywood and the wealthiest globalists like George Soros and Michael Bloomberg.
Independents and Democrats voted for Donald Trump because they want to make America great again.
If faithless electors betray the voters, there will be turmoil and unrest such as this country has not experienced since the Great Civil War.
Make known your displeasure with the Democrat Party skullduggery. Send messages to your two U.S. Senators and to your U.S. Representative.
