Hypothetical: It's Trump vs. Sanders vs. Bloomberg [View all]

It's Election Day 2016, and CNN and NBC have just called it. Trump is currently at 38%, and Sanders appears to have slightly edged him out with 39%. What people will be talking about for years to come is that Bloomberg took a highly respectable 23% of the vote, the most in by an Independent in over 100 years, and winning 2 states, NY and NJ. Republicans also retained the House and Senate, losing a few seats though.

However, the real blockbuster story of the night is that Bernie won 265 Electoral Votes, Trump 230, and Bloomberg 43, preventing anyone from getting the magical 270 needed to win.

Flash forward to January. The election goes into the House to decide. The do not vote in any of the top three. Instead they choose...Jeb Bush.

That bastard will find a way to sneak in anyway. I can totally see something like this happening. The Majority in the House would never support Trump in this situation. And there would be nothing we could do to stop this, such as suing to prevent it from happening. The establishment wins again, electing their own king.
