Trump 268     Hillary 160     remaining votes 106

Even if all the votes, except for Texas @ 38 pending,  are cast for Hillary, Trump wins.
Pray for Texas to cast all their votes for Trump

Faithless electors so far are Democrats, not Republicans

Published: Dec 19, 2016 3:37 p.m. ET

Electors in Minnesota, Maine and Washington refused to back Clinton

The 2016 presidential election continues to defy expectations as “faithless electors” emerged among Democrats refusing to support Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

In the run-up to the vote of the Electorial College, all eyes had been on whether any Republican electors would refuse to vote for Donald Trump. There had reports of last-ditch lobbying asking electors to switch from Trump to Clinton.

Instead, it has been Democratic electors who were balking.

Four Washington state electors break ranks and don’t vote for Clinton

Originally published December 19, 2016 at 12:50 pm Updated December 19, 2016 at 1:40 pm

Hillary Clinton won the state’s popular vote, but three of 12 members of the Electoral College voted for Colin Powell, the former secretary of state; and one voted for Faith Spotted Eagle, a Native American elder from South Dakota.

Seattle Times political reporter

OLYMPIA — Only eight of 12 Democratic electors in Washington cast their votes for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who won the state in November.

In an act of symbolic protest, three electors voted for former Secretary of State Colin Powell, and one cast a vote for Faith Spotted Eagle, a Native American elder from South Dakota.

It’s the first time in four decades that the state’s electors have broken from the popular vote for president. Washington’s 12 electors met Monday afternoon in the state Capitol to complete the constitutional formality.

Michigan electors formalize Trump’s victory

Chad Livengood , Detroit News Lansing Bureau 4:05 p.m. EST December 19, 2016

Lansing — Michigan’s 16 electors unanimously solidified Donald Trump’s presidential election victory Monday afternoon amid protests at the Capitol over the New York billionaire occupying the White House next year.

During a ceremony led by Gov. Rick Snyder inside the state Senate chambers, the Republican activists representing Michigan’s 14 congressional districts and two U.S. senate seats formalized Trump’s narrow 10,704-vote victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 election.

Trump’s victory in Michigan marks the first time since 1988 that a Republican has carried Michigan in the presidential election, when then-Vice President George H.W. Bush prevailed.

“It’s a thrilling day,” said Ronna Romney McDaniel, chair of the Michigan Republican Party. “I’m so excited for all of our electors. I’m thrilled that Michigan made a big difference. Our tagline the entire election was ‘Michigan matters,’ and we proved that to the nation with our results on Nov. 8.”

All 29 Florida electors vote for Trump despite protests

Tammie Fields , WTSP 4:42 PM. EST December 19, 2016

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- We're one step closer to making President-elect Donald Trump official. Today electors gathered in every state capital including Tallahassee.  About 200 anti-Trump demonstrators tried everything they could up until the last minute to try to lock him out of the White House, though.

The protesters were defiant until the very end and they filed into our state's capital with signs in hand hoping to get the electors to rethink their votes. One protestor said, "We literally ourselves decided we've got to fight this to the last 538 votes and here we are." Another protester added, "I think all these people are angry and concerned that we've selected the wrong person to lead our country."

Nick DiCeglie, the Pinellas County GOP chair, is one of the 29 electoral college voters in Florida. Despite stacks of letters asking, begging and even threatening him not to cast his vote for Trump he refused to change his mind. DiCeglie said, "They're delivering my mail in baskets. Well over four thousand emails, phone calls -- the list goes on and on and on so I will be very relieved when this is finally all over."

Joe Gruters, also a Florida elector and he is co-chairman of Donald Trump's Florida Campaign, says he's received about 80,000 emails encouraging him to vote differently, too. He says, "What most people don't understand about electors is that the party picks them so for the 29 guys and gals - they're hard-core Republican partisans."

Tennessee Electors Unanimously Vote for Trump for President

By ERIK SCHELZIG and JONATHAN MATTISE, Associated Press Updated 2:41PM

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee's 11 presidential electors on Monday cast their ballots for Republican Donald Trump amid protesters demanding they stray from their legal obligation to support the candidate who carried the state.

None of the electors had given any indication they would budge from their support for Trump, but that didn't stop electors from receiving thousands of letters, emails and phone calls urging them vote for someone else.

The vote came with little fanfare, other than a few outbursts from the gallery. One audience member tried to read out some Scripture before the ballots were cast, but was told he could not speak.

"We certainly appreciate the Scripture, but this is a procedure the Electoral College can only proceed in," State Election Coordinator Mark Goins said from the podium. "The answer is no."

One protester shouted profanity at electors, and held up a sign in the gallery reading: "In your gut you know he's nuts." She was ultimately escorted from the chamber.

There was never any doubt about this in my view, nor of the result on Jan 6th, nor of the inauguration.

There will be nothing substantial to stand in the way of Trump's inauguration, only charades to bolster the Trump Mythology.

That's a funny slap in the face to the democrats.  They go on a campaign for the electors to vote their conscience and it loses votes for hillary.  I guess some democrats do have a conscience
