Generation_D: Did you know the electoral college is a relic from 2 1/2 centuries ago when they believed land owning was a more important quality to govern than majority rule? Its true!

I_Love_Cheesecake: Hey, subby:[ncowie.files.wordpress.com image 500x265]
ramblinwreck: Obama should get high 300s for EVs. Romney = Kerry. No motivation from the base, only ho-hum acceptance from his party.
One Bad Apple: Can a Fark Nebraska tag be far off ?Tremble before the might of our 5 splitable electoral college votes.
saintstryfe: A more interesting thought: what if there was a tie, but an elector decided to cast his vote for a fringe candiate - say a Ron Paul - and make that tie an Obama win. Could you imagine that shatstorm?
whidbey: Good. Because we need another Republican elected to the Presidency by the Supreme Court.
quiotu: Yay for Nebraska, where my vote can actually count despite what the other 98% of the geography of the farking state thinks.Anyone explain to me why farmers have such a hard-on for Republicans? What in God's name have they done for them lately? And the farming economy has soared since Obama was in office. Those poor unwashedbrainwashed masses...
Lucky LaRue: There are several ways that a tie can take place. The scary thing is that, in the event of a tie, a vote from the house breaks it.
Smoky Dragon Dish: Lucky LaRue: There are several ways that a tie can take place. The scary thing is that, in the event of a tie, a vote from the house breaks it....by the incoming Congress that was just elected and sworn-in.
Millennium: It gets better. The Senate picks the vice president, and there is no rule stating that they have to choose the running mate of whomever the House picks. Assuming that the incoming Congress has a similar makeup to the current one, it's quite possible that Romney might become President but Biden become Vice President. Stranger still, one could even find Romney/Obama, or the other way around (though this latter is unlikely if we continue to assume a new Congress with similar makeup to the current one).
