Could the Electoral College elect Hillary Clinton? "Given her tiny vote total, Stein does not and could not possibly allege a good faith belief that she may have won the state of MI".
The electoral college is actually unfair to people of larger population states like IL; our votes count for less than those of residents of very low population states like Wyoming and Vermont.
Maryland, which was the first state to join the popular vote compact, has 10 votes in the Electoral College. There has never really been any need to enforce them, since faithless electors make up only a tiny number of people, but activists are looking to encourage more people not to vote this year. This proposal comes after Hillary Clinton [official profile] won the popular vote by at least 2.5 million [Time report], but lost the electoral college and presidency to Donald Trump [official profile]. Not just the archaic Electoral College, which should be relegated to the annals of election history. Under this system, small states - who wouldn't merit three electoral votes if based exclusively on population - can have an unfair advantage over states where the number of electors more accurately reflects the number of voters.
Stone extends lead at Alfred Dunhill Championship
But, as in the first two rounds, he found his rhythm on the par 72's back nine and reeled off birdies at 10, 11, 12, 13 and 15 to eat into Stone's lead.
As for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, The Associated Press reported Wednesday that he has received 4,442,771 votes so far, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein received 1,420,351 votes. Only 10 states and the District of Columbia (making up 165 electoral votes) have signed on.
In other words, only one-fourth of America's eligible voters put Donald Trump in the White House. Not a good start for a president who says he will look out for all of us. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?
