Probability of an Electoral Tie

My regular email address works once again. Send your correspondence there.

Charles Cullen writes asking today’s probability of a 269-269 electoral tie. Using decided voters only it’s 3.9% – a lot! With the undecideds assumption it’s 0.4%. In this scenario the newly elected House and Senate would determine the president and vice-president, leading to Bush-Cheney (if the Senate remains Republican) or Bush-Edwards (if the Senate goes Democratic).
