Question 1. The total number of delegates for the US presidential election is 538, so that the majority is at 270. Now, Trump got 290 delegates while Clinton has 232: this is a total of 522. Where are the missing 16?
Question 2. Note that if these 16 all favor Clinton, she would reach 248 and the gap with Trump would reduce to 42. This would mean that if 22 delegates flip on her side, the result of the election is changed. I heard that 7 delegates are thinking of changing side: is it realistic to think that 22 could do so?
