Comment Re:Couldn't Clinton Still Win? (Score 1) 1081

But isn't the winner only the legitimate winner after the electoral college votes? Right now the assumption is that the electoral college will vote in such a way that trump becomes the legitimate winner, but until then isn't he just the presumed winner? And if the electoral college votes for Hillary instead, then wouldn't she be the legitimate winner?

Serious question, but what is stopping the electoral college people from voting for Hillary despite what the people in their state voted? From what I've read, even those states that have laws that mandate how the electoral people have to vote, the punishments are so laughable for breaking that law that they might as well not exist.
