If Trump and Hillary Were To Tie, Would the Republicans Support Trump for President? 10/6/16 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

 

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Nate Silver, the stats guru at the FiveThirtyEight blog has an article out that is saying that it’s possible, although highly unlikely that Trump and Hillary could tie, with HRC having 267 to Trump’s 266 Electoral College votes. Remember, you need 270 to win the Presidency. The reason this is a possibility is because Gary Johnson in one poll is leading by 24% in his home state of New Mexico. If he happens to somehow win it, Hillary wins all her states and Trump win his, then the election could be decided by the House of Representatives. If this were to happen, would the Republicans in the House vote for Trump? Or, would they go Hillary. I know there’s more Tea Party Conservative types in the House, but you know there’s some that might consider HRC over DJT. The establishment Republicans in the   Senator would absolutely vote Hillary. Now the odds of this happening are about the same as Tim Kaine suddenly becoming likeable, but it is a question to ponder….are there enough Republicans that would vote to make Trump President? It’s a question that sadly we’ve got to consider. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
