    This is only cool for us political nerds, number-crunchers and datamongers.

    Literally, no one cares about this outside of us.

    As a member of the numer-razzi though, I can't get enough of this shit.

    •  When do the electors vote, and is there (0+ / 0-)

      any chance that any of them will go renegade?

        and yes, there is about a 1 in 4 chance of a rogue elector in a normal presidential election - ie one where you don't have a 3rd candidate trying to siphon off part of a party's coalition. My pick for most likely defectors are evangelical southern Republicans voting for Santorum, libertarian Republicans in the intermountain west for Ron Paul, and D.C. with a statehood protest of some sort.

          Thanks.
