When the 538 individuals who make up the Electoral College descend on the 50 state capitals to formalize the results of the presidential election on Dec. 19, it won’t be without fanfare: They’ll be greeted by a national wave of protests organized and supported by progressive groups. The effort, backed by the left-leaning Progressive Change Campaign Committee, is the result of a survey of 23,000 of the group's members who revealed they overwhelmingly favor lobbying electors to challenge Trump.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Tuesday advised state electors not to vote for him in an anti-Donald Trump protest.
Kasich, a Republican who ran unsuccessfully for president, told The Associated Press Tuesday that he is not a candidate for president, the election was held and Trump was the winner.
“The country is divided and there are certainly raw emotions on both sides stemming from the election,” Kasich, in his second and last four-year term, said in a statement.
“But this approach, as well meaning as it is, will only serve to further divide our nation, when unity is what we need,” he said.
