Don't settle into a more polarized state just yet, America.

Electors decide in December. Let's not try to squeeze into a Trump-shaped universe just yet.

There was no majority of votes cast for any single candidate on November 8th. AND the votes that were cast were not expressions of support as much as of fear, distrust or dislike of the other. So, no mandate.

We can in good conscience ask Electors to find a consensus candidate. We should insist that they discuss among themselves and find a candidate who most of them and who most citizens can agree would be a better choice.

We can still avoid a disaster. Who cares?
