The nominally well informed political press has discovered the Constitution which proscribes how the House of Representitives selects the President if no candidate gets the requisite 270 electoral votes.
For that to happen somebody other than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has to win one or more states. Ross Perot had 19% nationwide but only could muster two second place finishes (Utah and Maine). George Wallace won five states with I think 54 electoral votes. In 1968 there was a real shot at a House selection as weeks before the election, Governor Wallace was polling high enough to have won several more states in the South.
The speculation now is that the Libertarian ticket could grab some states. That's a stretch but if the Johnson-Weld ticket catches on and makes it into the debates, there is that outside chance.
Now if it went to the House, it's one vote per state and the GOP controls enough delegations. However, would they go with Mr. Trump or use the situation to put someone else in ?
This is a parlor game for those of us who think about this stuff way too much.
