Former Obama strategist David Axelrod had this message for electors preparing to take part in the Electoral College’s presidential vote.
Though I share deep concerns about election & @realDonaldTrump, most electors will follow states & should. Reversal would rip country apart.

This is one area where the Hillary Clinton camp and President Obama’s camp are not singing from the same hymnal, for obvious reasons.
