On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballot for the President of the United States. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will become the next president. They have the power to change the state's electoral votes in Hillary Clinton's favor, making her the first female President of the United States. The chances seem very slim that would happen, but Clinton supporters are busy campaigning and spreading the petition, in hopes that it would sway the Electoral College to vote in her favor.

"If you feel scared about the current state of American politics and Whitehouse sign this petition," Lady Gaga wrote on Twitter and added the link to the petition. Currently, there are nearly 3.5 million signatures, over a million more than the petition initially believed was possible.

Many feel that it is a long shot for Donald Trump to lose the election after the Electoral College meets on December 19. Even so, for many Hillary supporters, they can't help but hope for the best. They have worked tirelessly to get Hillary in the White House only have it go up in smokes because almost 50 million registered voters decided not to vote on election day. It was a devastating blow to Hillary's campaign.

Many felt a level of sadness after learning that Donald Trump was elected president. Lady Gaga was no different and described feeling numb as she watched the election results. She protested his presidency by standing outside Trump Tower on Wednesday morning, holding a sign that stated, "Love trumps hate."

Lady Gaga added that she would continue to pray for our country under Trump's rule. She hopes that he will find a way to protect the students from the riots happening all over the country.

At first, Donald Trump called the protests "unfair" but quickly backtracked, ABC News reports. A few hours later, he stated that the protesters have shown they have a passion for the country, and assured the public we will find a way as a nation to come together, even if we don't agree with each other.

"Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have a passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud," Trump wrote on his official Twitter page.

It's true that it is a slim chance that the petition will make a difference, but what if, this petition is what makes all the difference. If you are upset with the election results and voted for Hillary Clinton, be sure to add your signature to the petition, so the Electoral College will know that you want Hillary Clinton as your Commander in Chief, and not President-Elect, Donald Trump.
