Harvard law professor says 20 Electoral College voters are considering changing their votes – people call BS

A Harvard University law professor observed Tuesday that 20 Republican Electoral College voters are now considering changing their vote from Donald Trump. This is more than half the number required to delay Trump’s swearing-in as the 45th president of the United States on January 20.

“Obviously, whether an elector ultimately votes his or her conscience will depend in part upon whether there are enough doing the same. We now believe there are more than half the number needed to change the result seriously considering making that vote,” Prof. Larry Lessig told Politico.

Lessig has been offering pro bono legal advice to electors considering flipping their votes through his anti-Trump group “Electors Trust.” The electors are scheduled to meet Monday, December 19 to cast their vote.

In the event no candidate receives the required 270 votes to win, the election will fall on the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

Folks on social media weren’t all that impressed with Lessig’s claims.

With the GOP’s comfortable hold in the House, the best Lessig can hope for is to delay Trump’s inauguration — he won’t stop it.
