How Many Faithless Electors Were There in 2016?

We weren't alive in 1836 or 1872, so the election cycle of 2016 was the craziest in our lifetime.  The nation voted on November 8, 2016 and Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in assumed delegates 306 - 232, while losing by a large margin in the popular vote. At press time, Hillary Clinton had a […]

Thanks for hearing out my frustration with the fantasy teams last weekend - I won in both leagues!  Now, of course, I'm paranoid - was that a false start to lull me into a sense of security to get blown out the rest of the season? Never a dull moment... (I know, 2 Weekenders in […]

Weekender to Weekender!?  What's the deal? Yeah, give it a few weeks - the site isn't going anywhere (you folks made us too popular for that to be an option, haha - thanks!).  The current real life interference will only run for so long.  That's a promise. Note my Twitter production has declined as well. […]
