Wargaming the 12th Amendment

OK, class, what happens in the event of a tie in the Electoral College or the case when a third party candidate keeps everyone’s vote count below the magic 270?

The Senate will select the Vice-President. If the Democrats retain control …

The President will be selected by the House of Representatives with each state delegation having one vote. A Republican President and Democrat Vice-President is a possibility.

If enough evenly split state delegations don’t vote and no President can be elected, then the Vice-President will become President.

Visualize President Biden.
