If Hillary becomes the President of America, HISTORY will be created and it is elaborated below. For the very first time event like this will occur in America.
Trump still can lose the seat of the President of USA, all thanks to the electoral college, which is going to be held on December 19, 2016. The electoral college can vote Hillary Clinton as the President of USA, and a monumental decision will be taken. So, let's wait for December 19 when 538 electors will be there to rubber stamp Donald Trump as the president of US.
A country of 50 states, the USA may add a new chapter to its vast history.
The election results of 2016 were declared on November 8 and according to them Trump became the President of USA. But, do you know that Trump lost the popular votes to Hillary Clinton?
Even though a greater number of Americans voted for Hillary, they got Trump as their leader. We will explain how and why this?
For your information, when you go to vote at the polls, you are not directly voting for the President, but for the electors. These electors then conduct a voting for the President of USA.
They did not trust in direct democracy. They had less faith in the general public to elect their leaders, so they brought this concept of electoral votes. You will be surprised to know that the 2016 elections hold the record for the maximum votes cast for candidates other than the eventual President. Also
Although the billionaire property tycoon has won more votes than any previous Republican nominee, the 2016 election also set a record for the most votes cast for candidates other than the eventual President.
The representatives of the electoral college are not bound to vote by their state's majority. Here comes the concept of 'faithless electors'. A faithless elector is the member of the electoral college of the USA presidential elections but does not vote for the candidate they had pledged to vote for. It is that they lack confidence in the candidate and fail to vote.
This petition calls on the conscience of these voters to vote for Hillary and not Trump. This is the petition on the website Change.org. This petition has already received more than 4 million signatures. It calls on electors to vote for Secretary Hillary and ignore their states' votes.
Moreover, there are many who question his qualifications to become the President of USA. Also, Hillary Clinton has a count of 2.5 million more votes than Donald Trump, in the Presidential elections. This is a record. This lead of Hillary is greater than 10 previous US Presidents.
Has accumulated 65,250,000 total votes so far, in comparison to Donald trump's 62,686,000. A sure-shot difference of 2,564,000. These many more Americans voted for her. This is because of late counting of mail in and absentee votes in states such as California, New York and Washington.
Lost the popular vote. Moreover, his win has revived the debate that the electoral college is disadvantageous for Democrats, all due to their distribution across the country.
The supporters of Hillary still can hope that the electoral college votes for Hillary in the majority and not Trump. Fingers crossed that America has another chance to secure its future and not let this gracious opportunity die in vain. Will this be true? Well, we will get the answer in near future.
"I, for one, am very focused on this. I hope people are all over the country because it's inconceivable to me that the will of 2.3 million people has been ignored in this result. It doesn't make sense. And it's supposed to be in our constitution: one person, one vote. That's not what happened here." Thus, there is also a petition against the electoral college on MoveOn.org, which has already received 585,889 signatures after the election results.
The complete responsibility resides in the hands of the electoral college voters. They are not bound by any law to vote for their states' choice.
We hope that America takes charge of this situation with maturity and works in the best direction. Waiting for the results on December 19, 2016.
