“A planned revolt among electors in the Electoral College has fizzled, sending President-elect Donald Trump to a victory far more mundane than his opponents had hoped for.” (from http://hudsonvalley.news12.com/news/revolt-fizzles-as-trump-easily-wins-electoral-college-vote-1.12781935). My emphasis. Who did this ‘planning’? The Electors? No. Others were pushing and agitating for electors to change their vote. This is not ‘planning’. AP betrays its Democratic Party leanings . . . again.
I also think the use of ‘mundane’ is incorrect. Mundane means lacking interest or excitement; dull. So the ‘fizzled’ revolt sent Trump to a duller victory than his opponents had hoped for. Does this mean the opponents wanted a thriller? A too-close-to-call vote? It needs editing.
