Electoral College Tie?

Not likely, especially if the current Trump surge in the polls recedes. And the least plausible thing we see here is New Hampshire colored red. But not impossible. If it happens, you saw it here first (unless you follow Dan O’Donnell’s Twitter feed).

A survey of Wisconsin state voters showed 71% overall support for a national popular vote for President.

The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the country.

By 2020, by changing state winner-take-all laws (not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, but later enacted by 48 states), without changing anything in the Constitution, using the built-in method that the Constitution provides for states to make changes.

Every vote, everywhere, for every candidate, would be politically relevant and equal in every presidential election.
No more distorting and divisive red and blue state maps of pre-determined outcomes.

The bill would take effect when enacted by states with a majority of the electoral votes—270 of 538.
All of the presidential electors from the enacting states will be supporters of the presidential candidate receiving the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC)—thereby guaranteeing that candidate with an Electoral College majority.

The bill has passed 34 state legislative chambers in 23 rural, small, medium, large, red, blue, and purple states with 261 electoral votes.
The bill has been enacted by 11 small, medium, and large jurisdictions with 165 electoral votes – 61% of the 270 necessary to go into effect.
