On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine - which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!
We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states' votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Why?
Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.
Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President.
Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump "won" is because of the Electoral College.
But the Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?
SHE WON THE POPULAR VOTE.
There is no reason Trump should be President.
"It's the 'People's Will'"
No. She won the popular vote.
"Our system of government under our Constitution says he wins"
No. Our Constitution says the Electors choose.
"Too many states prohibit 'Faithless Electors'"
24 states bind electors. If electors vote against their party, they usually pay a fine. And people get mad. But they can vote however they want and there is no legal means to stop them in most states.

Lol this.

Why are they wasting time?

They need to start planning for next election and sort our their own party. Hillary was a terrible candidate. No one to blame but themselves.

Also Hillary already conceded defeat.

so let me get this straight

they think this petition with 2.4 million sigs should overturn the election where 48+ million voted for Trump.

ok, sounds logical

I agree as well as Hillary conceded a while back so this is just a futile exercise and a colossal waste of money. I am sure the results will stand after the recount anyway.

Technically Hillary won the popular vote by roughly 2 million votes, but lost the electoral college as Trump won the vast majority of states. This petition is asking the electors to switch their votes (which is only allowed in 22 states), and most likely these electors will just go ahead and cast their votes for the candidate they represent. If any, only a couple of votes may get switched...not enough to change things.

If Hillary indeed manages to pull it off, there will be one hell of a firestorm.
