The election of Donald Trump as president is a bitter pill to swallow for millions of Americans and some are backing a quixotic campaign to reverse that outcome.
As of Friday afternoon, more than 2.4 million people had signed a petition to the U.S. Electoral College, urging its members to ignore their states votes and cast their ballots for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic, wrote Elijah Berg, who launched the petition on Change.org.
Berg, of North Carolina, argued that the Electoral College can award the White House to either candidate and should use its own most undemocratic institution to ensure a democratic result.
Berg continued: 24 states bind electors. If electors vote against their party, they usually pay a fine. And people get mad. But they can vote however they want and there is no legal means to stop them in most states.

Yahoo Propaganda has always been HORRIBLE but they are now actually trying to start a shooting war in America.
Yahoo News must be destroyed, utterly, and to a person.
These people are truly pathetic.
Elijah Berg is also now on my personal radar.
Every chance I hear some talk like that, I will tell those libtards to ESAD. Albeit with the minimal amount of politeness required so I don’t lose a job or get kicked out of church :)
We have 59+ million on our side.
The unpopular vote won this time around Lefties.
Waa Waa Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
They need to accept the results of this election, or they are undermining Democracy!
These people are itching for a civil war. This nonsense is being encouraged and supported by Hillary, Obama and the DNC.
Well if they do that then I’m starting a petition that says we don’t need an electoral college and I’ll be the single vote who decides who the president is, and it will be Trump.
They should move to Mexico.
I am seeing more positive effects in the last 48 hours worldwide ONLY because of the Trump effect than i have seen in 6 years. And he isn’t even sworn in yet. Stupid idiots won the lottery but are shooting the mailman bringing them the winning check.
Kry Babies. Please sign my worthless petition.
No, that is not a mis-spelling. I just like the Look and Feel of it.
It wouldn’t matter if they had 59 million signatures because there’s no validation that 1) these are living breathing people and 2) they’re in this country legally.
Anyone can sign a name.
(go crazy with the cheese whiz!)
We own the guns.....
So? 50 million signed a petition on Tuesday urging the Electoral College to choose Trump.
2.4 million people. Well you really don’t want to piss off over 58 million people do you
The twerps think that they will take charge.
It would be a simple matter to start a counter petition that would dwarf theirs.
