Trump is likely to win the electoral college once he wins AZ+NV+PA+GA+NC. Biden may have a path to 270 EV on the dot if he wins a few states. It’s not worth talking about because you’d have to be foolish to think that either side will accept a 270EV win by either side when every state has razor tight margins. The first step will be recounts. What’s interesting is the recounts can tend to show election fraud because some ballot boxes may be marked one way but are actually empty when opened up. Recounts won’t stop the battle though because neither side will be happy with the outcome. There is no path to a peaceful outcome. The Biden rioters are ready to burn their own cities down if they don’t get their way. The Biden 2020 campaign has been advised by Crooked Hillary to concede in no event.
So what happens next?
First, neither side will concede. Why would they? It’s razor thin.
In that case, what happens next? Well, there’s a path, so to speak.
First, the House gets to play ball.
An “election nightmare” scenario, one often overlooked by election experts, is that mailed and absentee ballots are easily challenged in a recount, and recounts can be delayed long enough to kick the election to the House of Representatives
Second, the states can uncertify:
Or what if a state recount is hopelessly stuck and state officials try to appoint electors? A Republican legislature might try to claim authority under Article II of the Constitution and certify Trump electors in the midst of the deliberate delay. A state court might say this is a question for the courts and certify a Biden slate.
Third, bad ballots can be tossed and this will happen during recounts. The problem for the GOP is that they somehow let the vote counters to comingle ballots which means that it’s impossible to separate the two.
Fourth, The ultimate outcome unless one side or the other concedes is the 1800 election model
When no candidate has a majority of the electoral college, the 12th Amendment states, “But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote.” The same rule was in place for the 1800 election, which is how the Federalists could lose the election but still vote for Aaron Burr and prevent Thomas Jefferson from winning the presidency until the 36th round of ballots in the House.
So, the legal process turns into a political one.
So, this is the way.
Second, court battles.
Third, State legislatures.
Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98, 104 (2000) . . . .’The State, of course, after granting the franchise in the special context of Article II, can take back the power to appoint electors.’ . . . . See id., at 35 ‘[T]here is no doubt of the right of the legislature to resume the power at any time, for it can neither be taken away nor abdicated’ quoting Harper v. Va Board of Elections 383 U.S. 663 (1966).
Fourth, Congress decides the winner.
So, there are several shit sandwich options that America will have to taste.
