POLITICO - The people the next U.S> President will pick

By Kyle Cheney
Tear up your countdown calendar: The 2016 election will not end on Nov. 8. In fact, it'll carry on until mid-December, when 538 members of the Electoral College huddle in their respective state capitals and cast the only ballots with the power to formally elect the next president.

Because they have rarely deviated from the will of the voters—and never changed the outcome of an election—this constitutional process remains an obscure and anonymous relic of the Founding Fathers. But for six weeks, this assortment of party insiders, donors and, in some cases, fringe activists will be the most powerful force in American democracy. And most Americans will never know who they are.

Trayvon's MOM gets a vote?!?!?? Slick Willie, too??

That's really fucked up! She'll vote for Hillary even if the rest of her state votes Trump.

She cannot be trusted to follow the law, just like her dead sprog.

These communist democrats are trying to convey the message that Trump is losing, yet election day isn't until November 8th!
Do not be convinced by these manipulated polls, they are trying to stop Trump by claiming he cant win, so you will not vote for him.
More communist propaganda by the communist democrats, ignore it and vote for Trump 11/08/2016!
