At least 20 electors have decided to turn against Trump

From the Washington Times:

Professor Lawrence Lessig said there are three groups consulting with electors on their legal options, with the aim of convincing 37 Republicans to withhold their votes for Mr. Trump and thus throw the decision to the GOP-controlled House.

“What we believe surveying the three groups that I’m aware of that are advising and supporting Republican electors is that there’s at least 20 right now,” he told MSNBC.

The president-elect won 306 electoral votes to 232 for Democrat Hillary Clinton. An exodus of 37 electors would put Mr. Trump at 269 electoral votes, one shy of the 270 needed to make his win official.

“Our goal is to let the electors exercise their judgment, and what we believe is at least 37 electors will make the judgment not to support Donald Trump,” Mr. Lessig said. “And if that happens, then of course it goes to the House, and the House has to pick among the top three candidates.”
