No, State Legislatures Can Not Overrule the Popular Vote

One of the very last-ditch efforts Trump proponents have floated since Election Day has been that state legislatures should simply overrule the results of the presidential election in their states. This proposition is so radically un-American — so contrary to our basic national principles — that in a normal environment, it might simply be laughed off. But 2020 being what it is, the theory has made its way into the pro-Trump social media ecosystem, cloaked in a thin veneer of legalese.

"The PA General Assembly will not have a hand in choosing the state’s presidential electors...PA law plainly says the state’s electors are chosen only by the popular vote of the commonwealth’s voters." --the (GOP) leaders of the PA legislature, Oct., 2020.
