“The United States was set up as a republic. Alexander Hamilton provided a blueprint for states’ votes,” Suprun writes. “Federalist 68 argued that an Electoral College should determine if candidates are qualified, not engaged in demagogy, and independent from foreign influence. Mr. Trump shows us again and again that he does not meet these standards. Given his own public statements, it isn’t clear how the Electoral College can ignore these issues, and so it should reject him.”
Hillary Clinton now leads Trump by over 2% of the popular vote and has the second most votes of any Presidential candidate in history. Do not think for one moment that if the Electoral College removes Trump that Hillary will be President. The decision would go to the heavily GOP dominated House with John Kasich being the early favorite.
And don;t think this move is coming from just Dems...Republican elector Christopher Suprun of Texas wrote an op-ed in The New York Times on Monday that he cannot vote for Trump because “now I am asked to cast a vote on Dec. 19 for someone who shows daily he is not qualified for the office.”
