Technically, yes. That's how the Constitution designed it.

Citizens, dead people, and illegal immigrants vote for Electors who
are pledged to vote for a specific candidate.
So if the Electors suddenly decide to vote for candidate A while being
pledged to vote for candidate B (maybe because their bank balance
suddenly got increased by ,say, 10 mil dollars), then what happens ?
does Candidate B become the president ? Has the people got no say in this ?
