"Will You Accept the Results of the Election?"

Great question to ask Trump.  Some people are not prepared to do so.

Intimidation threats against Electoral College voters.  11/17/16 Detroit News:
“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he said. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”
The Detroit News verified one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the person told Banerian he would “put a bullet” in his mouth. Banerian said he deleted the rest of the emails and messages “because as you can imagine they’re clogging up my email.”
“Even if I could, I wouldn’t be remotely interested in changing my vote,” said Banerian, a political science senior at Oakland University and youth vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party. “The people of Michigan spoke, and it’s our job to deliver that message.”
I keep thinking of the intimidation used by the National Socialists in the vote for the enabling act that gave Hitler dictatorial powers in 1933.  And why not?  National Socialists are just a variant of progressivism.
