In less than a month, Michigan's 16 electoral college voters will cast their votes for Donald Trump, but some are hoping those voters will go rogue and choose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

Reportedly, some electors have been receiving threatening emails demanding they cast their ballots for Clinton.

Supporters point to the fact that Clinton is winning in the national popular vote and think she should be president.

A petition on Change.org now has signatures from more than four million people encouraging electors to choose Clinton.

The electoral college votes on December 19th, and while election experts say it is possible under the constitution for them to cast their ballots for Clinton, it likely will not happen.
