  1. The Electoral College must do the correct thing and that is to appoint Hillary Clinton POTUS since she has more than 2 million votes above the Republican nominee!

    It truly is wrong for a candidate to be declared POTUS before ALL votes are counted and verfied!

  2. This is why the Electoral College doesn’t meet until late December to elect a president.

    Trump is simply “the presumptive president elect” — he lost the popular vote badly, and the Electoral College has not elected him (but is widely expected to do so).
