11. Yep, it actually makes sense. Especially the Wa votes for Powell.

If Washington Democratic Party Electors throw Powell's name into the mix, it might encourage some of the moderate, 'never Trump' Republican Electors in red states to do the same. If enough of them did that, it would force the House to choose between Trump, Clinton and Powell.

I honestly don't know how a vote like that would come out, because each State would have to decide on only ONE VOTE.

However, it might have been a futile gesture, since it looks like all the Republicans are voting like good little zombies, along Party lines. And all this may end up doing is giving Trump some more fodder for gloating tweets.
