It ignores the deep seeded trends against the establishment that are the root cause for Hillary’s defeat.
What if there was a third way to do it?
To convince the electoral college to pick a third party candidate (Bloomberg).
This article lays out an interesting case:
“1. get the Republican Electoral College to block Donald Trump
2. get the Democratic Electoral College to write-in Michael Bloomberg
3. get the (Republican) House of Representatives to vote between Trump, Hillary, and Bloomberg”
I see a two main problems with this approach:
1. You face possible backlash from the House electing a candidate who was not voted on by the public at all.
2. How can you convince electors to break with tradition? Especially in such a big way.
That said, I do think Bloomberg would be a much easier case than getting republican electors to vote for Hillary.
What do you think? How could you solve those issues?
