County Election Results as of Nov 15th

Electoral College

The Electoral College is a unique method for indirectly electing the president of the United States. It was established by Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution and modified by the 12th and 23rd Amendments.
The Electoral College consists of a total of 538 members, one for each U.S. senator and representative, and three additional electors representing the District of Columbia. Each state has a number of electoral votes equal to the combined total of its congressional delegation, and each state legislature is free to determine the method it will use to select its own electors. This year the vote will be counted in joint session on January 6th.

There are 3143 counties or equivalent in the U.S.

What if ?

Each county were to get one vote in the electoral college: Trump wins 2623 to 487

Each Senator got one vote: Trump wins 62 to 38

Each Governor got one vote: Trump wins 31 to 19

The actual count will not be known until Jan 6th but unofficially is Trump with 279 votes
