‘Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump election’ become the Change.org’s most popular elections.
More than 4.6 million people are calling for the Electoral College to make Hillary Clinton the next president of the United States — in the biggest Change.org petition ever.
The site has been around for nine years and has seen hundreds of thousands of petitions created in dozens of countries involving millions people. But the one for Clinton is now officially the most popular of all time.
Donald Trump’s election came as a shocking blow to many Americans. However, the petition on Change.org shows just how committed millions are to still making Clinton the next president.
Clinton won the competition
Trump stormed to victory with 306 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232 electoral votes. At the same time, Clinton has won the popular vote by more than 2.5 million votes so far, and recounts are underway across three U.S. states.
And while it may seem impossible, technically speaking, the Electoral College could still elect Clinton as president.

“On December 19, the electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win,” Daniel Brezenoff, organizer of the petition, wrote. “However, in 14 of the states in Trump’s column, they can vote for Hillary Clinton without any legal penalty if they choose.”
So the petition is asking the 149 electors in those 14 states to ignore their states’ votes and vote for Clinton, citing the wide margin by which she’s won the popular vote.
“Mr. Trump is unfit to serve,” the petition reads. “His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.”
Leading the way for Clinton believers, the petition seems like a last hope for a lot of people, and has received lots of celeb endorsements on Twitter.
