Trump secures victory in the Electoral College, as a commandment flip-elector-flops

 

President-elect Donald Trump won more than enough votes in the Electoral College on Monday, securing his White house win, as the last – and perhaps last – stop-Trump-movement failed to gain traction in the country’s main cities.

To convince a fervent push from the anti-Trump forces of the elector rogue had become, the normally profane civil proceedings in the high drama.

But to throw the designated representatives ballot paper in accordance with its member States, Nov. 8 decision is mostly adhered to, the results of the election. With several States still have the vote, Trump 304 votes, and Hillary Clinton 169 had had.

It takes 270 Electoral College to win votes for the presidency. Texas put Trump over the top”, despite the two Republican voters casting protest.

The elector’s antics were few and far between, with most of the disorders occur on the democratic side. A Democratic elector in Maine is trying to vote for sen Bernie Sanders, but switched to Clinton after it was decided inappropriate. Others who have tried to vote for Sanders in Minnesota was replaced; a Colorado elector, tried to return to Ohio Gov. John Kasich also has been replaced. One of the biggest differences was in the state of Washington, where the three men voted for Colin Powell, and voted for, “Faith Spotted eagle;” and the remaining eight went to Clinton, of the state of the winner.

It was the first time broke into the four decades of the state’s electors to the popular vote. Washington Secretary of state Kim Wyman sworn, together with the state attorney General, and download the four faithless electors with a violation of Washington state civil law. Such violations result in a fine of up to $1,000.

With the Trump of victory now secured, a joint session of Congress is scheduled for Jan. 6 to certify the results.

Trump is an undisputed electoral Committee, the victory could serve to make to deter any further last-ditch efforts to effectively nullify, to win his November and prevent his inauguration, when the battle could move to grips next to his closet.

Few expected the “faithless elector” push-to-endanger Trump’s victory on Monday. Only a Republican elector – Texas’ Chris Suprun – publicly stated that he would vote for an alternative candidate. More than three dozen would have to make it difficult to leave him to make his way to the presidency.

But GOP voters still face immense pressure — with some even received threats from Trump opponents in the run-up to Monday’s Electoral College vote. This insistence interference in the country’s main cities often cited Clinton’s popular-vote win, by around 2.6 million votes, about trump in November.

Celebrities made public to the use of appeals to the voters, the more obscure the process, to persuade to re-blow the Trump of victory, as some democratic voters trying to get their Republican counterparts to lack. To increase reports that U.S. intelligence officials determined Russia interfered in the choice of Trump – results of controversial Trump self – only efforts to the swing of the electoral Committee vote to a political circuit-breaker heats up.

As the choice of men, thousands of protesters met rose at the country’s main cities Monday in a final push to convince Trump voters to change their minds.

In Arizona, dozens of protesters gathered outside the conference Website, March around the Capitol mall and carrying signs that said: “Holding the trump card.” More than 200 protesters gathered in the Pennsylvania Capitol, chanting, “No treason, no trump!”

Both States, and dozens of others, throw their electoral votes for Trump anyway.

In Mississippi, reg. Phil Bryant attempts to sway Republican voters.

“This idea … that we want to change the electors’ minds that are dedicated to Donald Trump, I think very early in the process, that is simply wrong,” he said.

If nothing else, has served the excitement about Monday’s procedure, newly familiar to the Americans, a process that some attention to all four years.

The Electoral College was developed at the constitutional Convention in 1787. It is a compromise between those who wanted popular elections for President and those who wanted no public input.

The Electoral College has 538 members, with the number of each state is assigned on the basis of how many representatives it has in the house plus one for each senator. The district of Columbia has three, despite the fact that the house of the Congress has no voice in Congress.

To be elected, the President, the winner must have a minimum of votes, half plus one, or 270 votes. Most States give all their electoral votes to whichever candidate wins the state’s popular vote. Maine and Nebraska award to them by constituency.

According to a joint session of Congress the results of the Jan confirmed. 6, the next President will be sworn in on Jan. 20.

Trump is already commissioned almost finished naming his Cabinet as he prepares for the hearings, and the inauguration ceremonies, in addition to his first 100 days agenda.

Despite its transition process in full swing, the Republican voters said they were flooded with E-Mails, phone calls and letters urging them to support the billionaire, business man, in the days and weeks, until on Monday, the trial. Many of the E-Mails were part of coordinated campaigns.

“The letters are very sad,” said Lee Green, a Republican elector from North Carolina. “Do you really believe the propaganda. Do you believe that our nation is taken over by a dark and malevolent force.”

A. Wirt Yerger Jr., a Republican elector in Mississippi, said, “I have several thousand emails asking me to not vote for Trump. I threw them all away.”

Arizona elector Robert Graham told Fox News on Saturday that the state received by 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.”
