I Think We Will Have At Least 10 Faithless Electors Today.

by Anura Guruge


I, hope I am dead wrong, but I fear that we will have at least 10 Faithless Electors today — YIKES.

That would mean that Biden most likely will get less than 306 — probably even less than 300.

That is fine. He still has enough margin to exceed 270.

But, Trump won in 2016 by 304.

So, even though he will LOSE today, as is his due, he will CROW, as we KNOW he will, that Biden didn’t win by as much as he did. Jeez.

In 2016 there were 7 Faithless Electors.

Just a heads up.

With any election you have to play and WIN by the pre-stated rules.

Superdelegates, whether you like them or not, are very much a part of the Democratic Party apparatus and rules. They feel that the party needs them and the notion and composition of the Superdelegates would have been implemented by the PARTY democratically, following the established parliamentary rules. So you have to abide by them. If you don’t like them get them changed or leave the party.

It is laughable when ANY American complains about proper representation in Presidential elections.

The U.S. does not have a Presidential election that genuinely represents the popular vote.

The 2000 elections highlighted that mightily.

Al Gore got more of the POPULAR VOTE but that did NOT matter.

President is chosen by Electoral College votes.

No different to having Superdelegates.

Q.E.D.

Ahead of Super Tuesday 2016 have you seen Hillary Clinton’s lead over Bernie Sanders with the Superdelegates apportioned out!

Staggering.
