Trump voters are less likely to take polls...

Still... a huge long-shot.

That doesn't add up to 538.

Or are you saying that 172 faithless electors will cast their ballots for someone other than those two?

I'm saying that a bunch of states will not announce the results of the election by Dec. 14th so their electoral votes won't be counted and they'll try to use that as a way to overturn the election while screaming reeeeeeeeeeeee even harder than they have been for the last four years.

i know you are men of honor, but nonetheless, i'm also writing down everyone's name, winner, and winner's total, so you cannot go back and change it after the fact.

I just hope Trump can get the 270 needed. I do not give a chit about a land slide, but the way this year has been. I just have a bad feeling about the Dems fuggin stealing this thing some how.
