Liberal scheme to stop Trump backfires, costs Clinton votes

Donald Trump was officially elected President of the United States on Monday. And for all the hype surrounding the call for Republican electors to switch their vote (Saturday Night Live even did a skit about it), it turned out quite the opposite. More Democratic electors abandoned Clinton than Republicans did Trump:

Four electors in Washington state who were supposed to vote for Clinton instead voted otherwise: three for former Secretary of State Colin Powell, and one for a Native American leader. In contrast, just two electors in Texas voted against Trump.

Another Democratic elector in Maine was replaced when he announced his intention to vote for Bernie Sanders.

In other words, Trump won by three more electoral votes than he was supposed to, 304-227. If that’s not salt in the liberal wound enough, consider these historical points:

  • Clinton would have lost by 80 votes, but three of her mutineers had their votes invalidated under their states’ laws.
  • Seven is the most total faithless electors since 1912, when eight Republicans did not vote for the vice-presidential nominee — on account of the fact he died the night before the election.
  • Clinton’s five faithless electors are the most for a presidential candidate since 1808. Six New York electors refused to vote for their state’s winner, James Madison, and instead voted for the second-place candidate George Clinton.

Put a fork in her, she’s done.

    This is just delicious although the MSM don’t seem to haven’t gotten the message; they are sure Russia orchestrated the entire election and Electoral College votes. Egg on all their faces.

    I hope they catch up to the 2 Defectors in Texas. Tar and Feather them and send them back to NY or Ca. where they belong.

    Can’t seem to help myself, apologize. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…oops! Okay, I will stop now. Demonrats lost in November and again yesterday. Wahooooo!! Will the cream puffs, buttercups & snowflakes ever get over losing? Are they going to color, pet puppies, and need a binky for 4 years (or more)?

    The whole blaming Russia scheme / hoax was a smoke screen put on by the National Socialist Democratic Party and the Turn Coat Traitors in the GOP. Americans Reject Progressive Social Communism New World Order Control. Faithless Electors should be stripped of the property & freedom for denying Americans their rightful vote. Patriots should remain armed as the Domestic enemies of the CONSTITUTION & American Freedoms will not Stop.
