The Electoral College is expected to choose Monday, Donald Trump as the next President of the United States, despite the efforts to disrupt the 227-year-old process, seem so far to have resulted in only one open rogue-voters. Still, Democrats and Republicans on Sunday spoke with a degree of uncertainty about the expected results.
“We expect everything said to fall in line,” Reince Priebus, chief of staff of the White house, in the incoming Trump administration, “Fox News Sunday.”
In most presidential election years, the Electoral College vote is essentially a formality after the referendum, would the cast is in November.
But 2016 is not typical for an election year, in view of the Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, the people won the vote with around 2.6 million more ballots than trump but lost the Electoral College vote.
Trump has more Electoral College votes by winning many of the smaller, less populated States in the Midwest and the South, together with the large coastal state of Florida and traditionally democratic-leaning Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Trump and Clinton, the six portions of the population to the richest member States.
Trump needs 270 electoral votes on Monday. And the state of Siege, was to get him in line, 306 of 538 — with each state getting a vote for each house and Senate member. The three remaining votes will go to the District of Columbia.
Priebus, who still runs the Republican National Committee, trying to count the prorated or “pledged” votes, cited the only well-known and so-called “faithless” balloter, lives in Texas, and whose voice goes out to trump, but plans to be for a different, not-yet-named Republicans.
“But other than that, we are very confident, get everything very smooth,” said Priebus, noting that a massive petition drive, elections, electorate to the voting ballot against Trump and the alleged harassment of some voters, especially in Arizona, where Trump won with 49 percent of the vote, compared to 45 percent for Clinton, right, all 11 electoral votes.
Arizona voters Donald Graham told Fox News on Saturday, the 11 voters, hundreds of thousands of E-Mails do not tell the right to vote for trump is, and that he received information that some of the other 10 was followed, or have received a death threat.
“It is out of hand, if you are such a … a small group of people push so hard against the millions, if not hundreds, of millions of people who still appreciate this entire system,” said Graham, chairman of the Arizona Republican party. “The Electoral College is part of the Constitution.”
All swore to party officials that they are holding back a trump, even when it is not required by law, and plan to have the mortgage.
Trump responded to the reports of the elector of harassment and intimidation, on Sunday.
If my many followers acted and threatened people such as the ones they lost, the elections are about to do, you would be despised, & called terrible names!

There is no Federal law on the electoral votes. Some States bind their voters-often government officials-at the referendum. But the penalties for violations are minor, such as excluded from future voting.
On Sunday, John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign Chairman, suggested to Trump that 37 of the electoral voters are bound to be defective, that would be enough to at least a draw and send the vote to the GOP-controlled house, where Trump would still probably win.
Podesta, he has in the last few days, pressed the argument on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the Russians are hacking the E-Mails from the Democrats in the election led to Clinton’s loss.
He also made a last-minute argument that the members of the election Committee should intelligence briefing about the hacking before the vote on Monday.
“I’m going to assume that our voters are going to vote for Hillary Clinton,” said Podesta. “But the question is, whether there are 37 Republican voters who think that it is either open-ended questions [about the alleged Russian hacking] or Donald Trump … is really unfit to be President. … And I think we know that … tomorrow.”
To reach to The Associated Press all 538 electoral attempts and was interviewing in the location, more than 330 of them. Many reported that tens of thousands of E-Mails, calls and letters asking you to vote against Trump.
But the canvas was overwhelming support for the system, and the candidate, of the Republican voters. The AP found only one said Trump, who will vote to refuse for him, but did not identify him as the voters in Texas.
