Change.org petition for Electoral College to pick Clinton is largest ever
An online petition to make Hillary Clinton President of the United States has become the largest petition ever at change.org.
More than 4.6 million people have signed the online petition which urges members of the Electoral College to ignore their state's votes and cast their ballots For secretary Clinton instead of Donald Trump.
It's been nearly a month since Trump was declared the winner of the election.
But the election isn't technically over yet.
On December 19th the electoral college casts votes.
The way that their respective states voted, Trump wins.
The petition calls for those Electoral College members to ignore their their state's votes, arguing that Trump is unfit to serve and that more people wanted Clinton President since she won the popular vote.
It could happen but it's not likely.
There have been instances of some Electors not voting for the candidate their state wanted but it has never changed the outcome of an election before.
That's according to factcheck.org, so how big is this particular movement?
To compare, the second largest petition on change.org took more than three years to collect about half as many signatures.
