WHY IS JOHN KASICH SMILING?
The title is a tease isn’t it?
I have to admit two things. One I hate politics and two it would take a miracle to keep Donald Trump from becoming the 45th President of the United States. A miracle yes, but it isn’t impossible. No Hillary Clinton is done but the Electoral College does not meet until 19 December 2016 in the fifty state capitals to cast their votes for President and Vice President. If one or many change their votes they would called “faithless electors.” In US history there have been 157 of these so called faithless electors. Were enough Democrats and Republicans to come together and forced the vote to the House where each state would have one vote.
Here’s a scenario. Fifty GOP electors, which would be a record, shift their votes from Trump to John Kasich, say. Let’s say they are joined by an equal number of Clinton electors. Now that would trigger a vote in the House and the GOP controlled House would have the tool it needs to make John Kasich, a wise choice, the 45th President of the United States.
So now you can watch and wait to see if that man has an even bigger reason to smile.
