    What would happen next if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump tie in the Electoral College

    A very interesting essay on what could happen in the event of an electoral tie. Remember, the actual vote for president doesn't happen until Dec 18 when the Electoral College meets. And, there's no certainty that the electors will remain true to the results of the popular votes in their states. Just one could overturn the will of the majority of voters.

    Democrats would demand recounts in all the states Trump wins so they could steal votes the way they did in 2,000.

    Given the madness of this campaign, that would be a fitting outcome.

    The nihilist in me is enjoying this, the rest of me isn't.
