Electoral College Final Results; 304 To 227

The official votes in the 2016 presidential election were cast yesterday by the Electoral College. Republican nominee Donald Trump won 304 electoral votes, officially making him the president-elect. He will be sworn in on January 20, 2017.

The results were surprisingly. There was talk of a possible movement by unfaithful electors to leave Trump for a compromise candidate. But in the end, the surprise was more electors were unfaithful to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as she won that race five to two with her unfaithful electors giving three votes to another former secretary of state in Colin Powell, one to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and one vote going to Native American Rights activist Faith Spotted Eagle. Trump’s two unfaithful electors went to Ohio Governor John Kasich and former congressman Ron Paul.

Here is the final scoreboard;

Republican nominee Donald J. Trump- 304 (minus 2 from his pledged total)
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton- 227 (minus 5 from her pledged total)
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell- 3
Ohio Governor John Kasich- 1
Former Congressman Ron Paul- 1
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders- 1
Native American Rights activist Faith Spotted Eagle- 1

Now let’s move on and actually give the new administration a chance before we start hammering away.
