I find it hard to believe that the Left could ever convince 38 people to become faithless electors… which is what it would take to reverse the outcome of the election and put Hillary Clinton in the White House.
Electors are not just people who walked in off the street and decided they wanted to be electors. One cannot become an elector without having given many years of faithful service to the political party of their choice. As you probably know, when I served the first of two terms in the Electoral College in 2000, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney had only 271 electoral votes to Al Gore and Joe Lieberman’s 266. And in spite of numerous death threats and bribery offers, every single one of the 271 electors did exactly what they had sworn to do. I just don’t think that it would ever be possible to corrupt 38 (12.4%) of all the Republican electors. If they did, it would be the biggest political crime in history and a full scale civil war would be sure to follow.
