Acting DNC chair Donna Brazile has some neck , going on news networks and talking about Trumps win been tainted as the election was unfair.

This is the same woman who was sacked as an analyst for CNN after it was revealed she was feeding debate questions to Clinton pre debates , and then afterwards saying her biggest regret was getting caught.

The likes of her behaviour would certainly have turned off more than a few Berne supporters who would then have decided to stay home on Election day.

Trump finished up today with 304 EVs, and two defectors in Texas. One voted Ron Paul and the other John Kasich.

What a terrible system where people are not obliged to vote as their state dictates. Thankfully it's done now and the silly season talk can end.

Trump at 265 now. 4 Dem electors in Washington State refused to vote for HRC. 3of them voted for Colin Powell and a fourth for one of the Native Americans leaders at the Dakota pipeline protests.
Painful to see the last kick of a dying mule - anger of their supporters is palpable - even at the end they could not maintain some semblance of party unity - good riddance!

Virginia Republicans moving to introduce the Maine/Nebraska system in the state for the 2020 Presidential election, so that the electoral vote could split.

An interesting development that I had heard was in the works. For all the talk about gerrymandering, Virginia is one of a few states where that problem really exists.

Hillary won the state in November by about 5% taking all 13 electoral votes, if it were split like Maine and Nebraska, Trump would have gotten 7 votes to Hillary's 6.

If all the states did as Maine and Nebraska do, then Romney would have been elected President in 2012.
