Do the math on the interactive map

If McCain carries Republican Red States Ohio,Florida,virginia, and colorado and Indiana, which in all probability he is going too (no matter what the polls say right now, these are strong republican states folks.). There called Bush Country cause W carried strongly. The last time Dems won in Ohio for example was Clinton and only because of Perot. No other democrat has won any of these states at all since Carter in ohio in 1976. Think about that.

Barack carries new mexico, which he may do, and nevada (unlikely but thats a very BIG wildcard) and all the tradional Democrat Strongholds, which he is just as likely to do . Then we have a tie.

269 electoral votes for both candidates.

Then what?

I saw a CNN panel the other day saying that this possible scenario may play out. And its chances are anywhere from 6-11% according to tucker carlsons math wizards. Not alot, but thats a hell of a chance.



Kinda scary isnt it?

In the event of a tie in the Electoral College vote, the 12th Amendment kicks in. In short, The House of Representatives elects the President; the Senate elects the Vice-President - provided there are enough members present for a quorum, etc. If the House has not selected a new President by the time the sitting President's (in this case, President Bush's) term is up, the individual selected by the Senate as Vice President will serve as President until the house reaches a decision.

A tie will never make it to a House vote. Both parties will pick a state they think they can win with a recount. It will go to the Supreme Court and Justice Roberts will say "John McCain, I annoint you Supreme Commander and Divine Ruler of the North American Union."

The dems will whine and go home and drink cafe latte topped with tears.
