Some radicals are trying to influence electors to nullify Trumps win by causing electorial college participants to change their vote to Hillary. I doubt they will succeed because Trump clearly won and he is just not that bad. However, the electorial college is a last ditch chance to stop someone that is unfit to be president for some severe reason.
The electorial college makes it difficult for the Tyranny of the majority aganist the minority to succeed by the ballot box. There was a Tyranny in the USA that a Trump victory seems to correct. Political correctness is one Tyranny that used to exist before the Trump victory. The extreme left wing cabal of the elite liberal news media, liberal education system and anarchist groups like black lives matters use politically correct hate speech to suppress the average persons common sense. A majority of brainwashed people in New York, California and other high population states can't easily force a president on the people of Wyoming, Wisconsin or other low population states due to the well planned foresight of the electorial college mathematics.
Major natural disastors or a candidates death after the general election could make it necessary for the electorial college to pick someone for president. Continuation of government would be very important if something like major volcanic activity occurred in the USA and simply wiped out a significant portion of the population. Trump may not be the perfect president but he is better than having the yellowstone supervolcano explode.
Our founders got it right.
