Interesting thought...Submitted by renegade republ... on Sun, 10/14/2012 - 16:26
Had an interesting thought today guys. So There's apparently eight or so states that allow write-ins, even for candidates that are undeclared, and combined they would have over 150 electoral votes.
What if we launched a big enough write in campaign and won enough states that neither Obama or Romney won the 270 necessary electoral college votes? According to the Constitution, the three candidates with the most electoral votes (Paul, Romney and Obama) would then be voted on by the House.
Even though I doubt the House would elect Paul if this happened, wouldn't it be funny if we could make it happen;)
