Clinton's supporters hope to convince the faithless electors to defy their party by switching their votes Clinton, since she received about 200k more votes than President-elect Donald Trump.
Clinton's supporters are grasping at the popular vote as indication that the nation wants Hillary for president.
Because voter fraud is a real threat to Democracy, electoral votes ensures that both parties have a fair and balanced chance to win. That's why 270 electoral votes are required to be elected president.
The petitioners are banking on the unlikely chance that a few faithless electors can convince over 200 electoral college members to change their minds on December 19, forcing Congress to elect either Clinton or Trump as president.
I have a better chance of wooing Beyonce away from Jay Z than Clinton does of being elected president.
The people have spoken.
