Ever since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, liberals have been doing everything in their power to stop him from making it to the White House. In the past few weeks, there has been a growing pressure on electors to revolt against tradition and throw out their votes for Trump on Monday.
According to reports from the Associated Press, who interviews 330 electors out of the 538 in the Electoral College, there is very little appetite to revolt. Some of the Republican electors admitted that they do not like Trump, but say they feel bounds by either history, duty, party loyalty or the law to follow their state’s wishes.
Meanwhile, the Democratic electors expressed aggravation with the electoral process—but had little hope electors would actually turn their backs on him.
“Let me give you the total as of right now: 48,324 emails about my role as an elector,” Brian Westrate, a small-business owner and GOP district chairman in Wisconsin commented. “I have a Twitter debate with a former porn star from California asked me to change by vote. It’s been fascinating.”
“Hell will freeze and we will be skating on the lava before I change,” Nashville attorney Tom Lawless said of the efforts. “He won the state and I’ve pledged and gave my word that that’s what I would do. And I won’t break it.”
Overall, there are a handful of electors who are caving into liberal pressure—but it appears the majority of them are standing strong and honoring their commitment to the American people. What do you think? Does Trump deserve to be our president?
