Thread: Romney with Biden as VP??
Romney with Biden as VP??
Don't laugh, it has happened before - twice in fact in the elections
of 1800 when the House of Representatives selected Jefferson as
Prez and 1824.
Rasmussen called for a possible tie in the electoral college vote over the summer with
each candidate getting 269 votes. If that happens it goes to the
House and they decide.
With the GOP in overwhelming control, MItt would surely win. Each state gets
1 vote but get this:
The Senate chooses the VP and with the DEMs in overwhelming control
they could pick Biden as VP. Doesn't mean they will but they could.
So we can possibly have Mitt as President and Biden as VP.
In 1800 Jefferson and Aaron Burr the great duelist who killed Stephen
DeCatur in a fight amongst others. It was tied and Jefferson used
his congressional experience to call in favors and manipulate the HOuse
to vote for him. Burr became the VP.
More and more on TV are saying a tie could happen now.
With OBY blowing big leads in Penn, OHio, Wisconsin and Michigan
along with Iowa, Neveda and Colorado, it could happen again especially if
Mitt wins Penn where he is ahead by +4 pts and OBY get Ohio.
Mitt would need the 3 western states: Colorado where he is ahead
and Iowa and Neveda which is tied but leaning for Mitt.
A news anchor in Iowa says it's so close she can't tell but she sees
a lot of Romney fans. OBY was ahead in all these states before the
debates and blew a critical big lead in PA.
That's the way it is.
