Iowa electors with Governor Branstad, Sec. of State Pate and Lt. Governor Reynolds

DES MOINES – Donald Trump got all 6 electoral votes in Iowa, officially, today.

Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate reported this afternoon that “Iowa’s six electors unanimously cast their votes for Donald Trump and Mike Pence.”

The Iowa Rpublican Party thanked the electors for their service, saying “Thank you to Iowa’s six faithful presidential electors for reflecting the will of Iowans. Your service is greatly appreciated.”

Across the country, as is taking place in Iowa, electors in the Electoral College are casting their final votes. Donald Trump will gain the needed 270 and a lot more to become the next President of the United States. He won the Electoral College after the November 8 election 306 to 232 over Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote by more than 2 million votes. It was reported today that between 4 and 7 electors had left the Hillary Clinton camp and instead went for Trump.

    On the brighter side…there’s clear and compelling reason to eliminate the Electoral College (although it will never get done). It’s principle purpose has been relegated irrelevant. Hamilton would never have gone for a guy like Trump and would have cited this election season as an exemplification for why his E. College was a good idea. Of course the schizophrenic / bi-polar nation of America will never allow Amendments to the Constitution to work against their precious Whitey Tighty Republicans. It’s going to take steady, constant Steve Bannon / Breitbart Rule and dismemberment of America for people to understand that we don’t get along, and we should divide this nation in 2 parts. Democrats are such pussies and their sycophantry and kowtowing to Republicans makes me sicker than the actual Mitch McConnell douchebag racist obstructionists. No one respects Schumer, Pelosi and the other ass kissers.

      And before someone uses the “Trumpland / Clinton Archipelago” map as an argument for extermination of the Blue, those maps don’t take into account the actual numbers of people voting one ideology over the other…they only record who actually wins the county / region. In terms of human beings holding the Conservative Ideology versus the Liberal Ideology, the numbers are about split in half evenly. This election season was also disingenuous because many Sanders voters sat out or voted against Clinton. The DNC made their gambit and lost. But as a result half the population with liberal ideas will now suffer. It’s time to split away once and for all. 2018 is coming, and if history is any teacher, the Blue swell begin again, just as the Red swell did in 2010. I would think the REDS would want to stop this pendulum swing just as much as the BLUES do. Who wants a paralyzed nation?

      Hillary did not win, Trump won fair and square, but you are correct that Trump is a racist as is a lot of his supporters. That is a fact and is very easy to see. You can’t dispute the facts.

      Hillary did not win here in Iowa or in most of the states, so she lost. Get used to it Buttercup.
