Can The Electoral College Stop Donald Trump?

A Change.org petition is calling for the Electoral College to cast their votes for Clinton instead of Trump when they vote on December 19th.

Since Tuesday's election results were announced, Hillary Clinton supporters have been looking for any possible way to avoid a Trump presidency. A Change.org petition is calling for the Electoral College to cast their votes for Clinton instead of Trump when they officially go to vote on December 19th. An elector going against the popular vote for their state is very rare, but it has happened before.

How would this outcome be possible? Isn't the election already over? Jules Suzdaltsev has the answers in today's Seeker Daily video.
