See my Washington Post piece from September (link in next tweet) and my FAQs (but the Post piece may be more recent.

The question popped up when I logged on.

Apologies to all the people I haven't responded to. Once upon a time, I could answer every question. I haven't seen most of what's in my mentions this week.
The faithless elector question is a bit different, but the underlying arguments are the same.

Trump would have to persuade a lot of electors to change their positions. Ridiculous to think that it will happen.

Lots would have to forsake their pledges and violate the law.
Just imagine the country standing for it.

That said, it's time for the electoral college to go the way of the dodo bird.
Two ways: One, amend the constitution, which may be an option the first time the Republicans win the popular vote but lose the electoral college.
Two, states with electoral votes totalling more than 270 change their laws . . .
. . .and assign their electoral votes to the popular vote winner nationwide instead of their state's winner. There is a movement underway for this to happen.
All these scenarios are absurd for a host of reasons. The reason you all owe me a Twitter party on January 20 is because I spent so much time answering them Winking face

Party, my feed, January 20🥳🎉🪅
