In Search of the Faithless Elector

Background: Since the election, the idea of the faithless election has been gaining traction. There have been organized efforts to convince Republican electors to not vote for Trump when the Electoral College casts its ballots on December 19. As of December 8th, eight electors have said that they are willing to vote for a moderate Republican instead of either presidential candidate, and an online petition at change.org asking electors to vote for Clinton instead of Trump has amassed over 4.8 million signatures.
