VOTE MCMULLIN, GET ROMNEY? Jim Bennett emails:
With McMullin level-pegging with Hillary and Trump in Utah, and the outlier polls showing Trump within striking distance of a Hillary tie, the prospect of an Electoral College deadlock with Romney as the third choice (by McMullin directing his electors to vote for Romney, which they could) is looking better than ever.
What would make that particularly ironic are all the statements from Hillary and Obama about how Romney was , after all, perfectly well qualified to be President. It wold be most amusing if those statements were to come back to haunt them.
Yes, yes it would. Still something of a longshot, but hey, it’s 2016. Anything can happen, even a Cubs/Indians World Series. And I should note that Jim noted this possibility quite some time ago.
