It is extremely unlikely that a candidate would drop out of the campaign after the November election, when the electors are appointed. However, in the election of 1872, Grant's main opponent, Horace Greeley, died between the casting of the popular votes in November and the casting of the electoral votes in December. Those electors who had pledged to vote for Greeley ended up spitting their votes among four others, and the three votes that Greeley did receive were not counted. Greeley would not have had enough votes to beat Grant anyway.
