All hope is not lost for Hillary Clinton. She still has a theoretical chance of becoming president.
Since the American system is based on an indirect democracy where 536 electoral votes will make the final choice, Hillary Clinton actually has a very slim last chance.
Although it is mostly a theoretical possibility, but she can hope that some of the Republicans choose to support her rather than Donald Trump when it is to be decided on December 19.
The Republican candidate was declared the winner when he on Wednesday morning had received the 270 electoral votes needed. But these are free to follow their convictions, and are free to vote for Clinton instead.
In the United States Constitution there is placed an ever so slight barrier in regards to the popular vote. And when one sums up all the votes nationally, Clinton has received 200,000 more votes than her rival.
But is it enough to get 42 Republicans to 'flip,' which is needed, people who basically are supposed to vote for Trump?
Thankfully not likely.
