1. Two electors in Texas voted contrary the state's popular vote total.

If all of the Electoral Votes of Texas went to Trump, he would have had 306 total.

306 - 36 = 270

2. Please. Electors May defect but that is simply an absurd answer

Is there no shame amongst the Acolytes?

Does 304 - 36 tally more than (or equal to) 270? I will wait while you check with the one whom you carry the water for.

8. How many rogue electoral votes were counted in 2016?

Fact be known the original Conservative poster was wrong (what a surprise). If Dumpie-Trumpie loses PA and MI, he loses. Pretty sad deflection.

10. Pretty sad look at me thread instead of just making your objections for whatever drivel they may be

worth on that one.

Sorry that once again you just can` get to the big leagues.

7. Electors did defect in 2016.

Trump 304, Clinton 227.

304 + 227 = 531

Trump got 36 Electoral Votes from Texas in 2016.

11. There were no faithless electors in PA or MI

So even if the 2016 electors remained “faithless,” Trumpie would still not win. And such a scenario is extremely unlikely as the “faithless” electors were certainly not favouring Trumpie.

This is a bit of a ridiculous discussion, given the original OP’s lack of mathematical skills.

14. Sorry Fred. No it did not

If Trumpie gets less than 270 as he would if he lost PA and MI and even if there were faithless electors voting for other candidates, the election would be determined by the current House.

I know it’s hard and there are some big words, Freddie. But Focus!

15. The only faithless electors that matter in this discussion are the two from Texas.

Trump would only lose in the outlined scenario if there was a faithless elector from Texas again.

Considering that 2016 was the only time Texas ever had any faithless electors, that seems the less likely outcome.

You seem to be arguing that because there were two faithless electors in Texas in 2016, we should assume the same thing will happen in 2020. Therefore Trump starts at 304 electoral votes instead of 306 for 2020.

18. Nice work! You spotted a small math error and created a whole new thread to pat

Yourself on the back for it. You got a lot of trophies as a kid that said “participant”, didn’t you.
