Trump Wins For The Third Time, Hillary Loses Votes To Powell And A Spotted Eagle
KIRO News --
While casting the electoral votes is usually a formality that seals the results of the General Election, this year’s vote includes a dose of drama, including in Washington State, where Stop Trump protesters gathered at the Statehouse in Olympia before the noon vote.
At noon, four of Washington State's 12 electorsstrayed from their promised Hillary Clinton vote. While eight voted for Clinton, three voted for Colin Powell and one voted for Faith Spotted Eagle.
For vice president, Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine received eight votes and then there was one vote each for Elizabeth Warren, Susan Collins, Maria Cantwell and Winona LaDuke.
Donald Trump is expected to win the Electoral College vote, something he wasn’t expected to do back on Nov. 8. Since that day, however, those who do not support Trump have placed their hope on the slim chance they could kill his presidency before it even begins by convincing those who vote in the Electoral College not vote for him.
