71. if nothing else, I think this fiasco provides a compelling argument

for why the electoral college needs to end. tRump's actions have exposed many of the flaws of our system, and the idea that electors had the option of overturning the will of the people in their states is unacceptable.

What happens the next time, when the GOP candidate is charming, articulate and good looking (but still a cruel, heartless thug beneath the surface)?

State electors may not have been willing to overturn this election for the most vile and incompetent president in recent history, but now they know they can do it next time. That precedent appears to have been set.
