Hail Mary: 4 Million Sign Petition Begging Electors To Flip, Pick Clinton

Millions of Americans fear a Donald Trump presidency so much that they’ve signed a petition asking the electoral college electors to choose Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that Trump won more electoral college votes on Election Day.

As of Tuesday, more than 4 million Americans – including Lady Gaga – had signed the petition at Change.org.

The electors are scheduled to cast their votes on Dec. 19.

“We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton,” the petition states. “Why? Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.”

Trump won at least 290 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232. Michigan has yet to be called, but Trump is leading there, too. The state has 16 electoral votes. Assuming Trump wins Michigan and gets to 306 electoral votes, then at least 38 electors committed to Trump would have to change their minds and flip to Clinton to place her at the 270 majority threshold – a highly unlikely scenario.

The petition notes that “if they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win.”

“However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!”

The chance of electors going against voters’ wishes is so remote that Vox writer Andrew Prokrop dismissed the notion as a “silly fantasy.” The petition was started by Elijah Berg of North Carolina.

“Hillary won the popular vote,” the petition reads. “The only reason Trump ‘won’ is because of the Electoral College,” the petition says “But the Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?”
