Would all you people, Dems, Demonrats, Reps, Republicans, etc., please read https://www.electoral-vote.com/evp20...16.html#item-7. The Votemaster is generally pretty level-headed and if he thinks it possible, it is possible. Note that, as he explains that the legislature could simply ignore the vote and choose the elector and apparently the governor has no role. I would be on surer ground had the item been signed by (Z), a historian.

And my question is how would the public, especially Republicans react to such a scenario? The party seems to have gone thoroughly the "end justifies the means", but have their voters. Is it conceivable that something like this would finally lead to the demise of the electoral college?
