    Forgot to link to Suprun’s oped: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/05/opinion/why-i-will-not-cast-my-electoral-vote-for-donald-trump.html

    A Republican has now defected! Christopher Suprun of Texas will vote for John Kasich, and the Hamilton Electors (now 8 strong, still all Democrats) will probably join him. (So if Suprun is not technically a Hamilton Elector, he may as well be.) This could be the break in the dam!

    … Probably not, but hey, this has been a weird election.

    Hopefully it was obvious that I meant that a California Elector represents 3.6 times as many people as a Wyoming Elector, not the reverse. (So the Californians’ influence is diluted, and the Wyomingites’ influence is enhanced.)

    Fun fact: Or-Zo’s name literally means barley, because his foes could always easily track him down at the local pub.

    No, the Electoral College has always given a bonus to State with low populations, since the number of Electors has always been the number of House Representatives (proportional to population) PLUS the number of Senators (always two). It’s true that capping the number of House Representatives at 435 means that even that can’t be made proportional; but even so, a California Representative only represents 1.6 times as many people as a Wyoming Representative. So the reason that a Wyoming Elector represent 3.6 times as many people as a California Elector is much more about the bonus for Senators than the cap of 435.

    Those seven faithless electors are the Hamilton electors that I mentioned upthread, and they’re all Democrats so far. (If they can’t get any Republicans to join them, then they probably won’t even be faithless.) Trump is not dropping any Electors of his own, not yet.

    Check out the Hamilton Electors: citing Federalist 68 (written by Hamilton and quoted in this comic), they are a group of (so far) 7 Democratic Electors who have pledged to support a ‘Reasonable Republican’ if Republican Electors will join them and pick one. If enough Republican Electors do so, then this would throw the election to the House, where hopefully they would choose the Reasonable Republican.

    They adapted. They interbred with those interlopers from Africa to survive. http://www.wired.co.uk/article/dna-analysis-humans-neanderthals-breeding

    He’s just surprised to still see an incandescent bulb as late as 2016.
