The presidential election could be delayed or scrapped altogether if a candidate dies or drops out or get charged in this case before Nov. 8. The perhaps equally startling alternative, if there’s enough time: Small groups of people hand-picking a replacement under obscure party rules.The scenarios have been seriously considered by few outside of the legal community and likely are too morbid for polite discussion in a politically mixed company. However, prominent law professors have pondered the effects and possible ways to address a late-date vacancy.Millions of people have been driven by the media to oppose Trump violently, and may well start riots across the country if he wins the election, that is if Obama does not stop the elections first. Likewise, if Hillary is elected and takes office, it could spawn a civil war, of words or worse.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was shocked recently after the FBI decided to reopen the investigation into her private email server while serving as secretary of state.
Also, recently, there has even been rumors that she might withdraw from the race and that Obama will help her by suspending the election.
Any number of pretexts could theoretically come into play, but no scenario has become more likely than Hillary dropping from the race and stirring, well, a shitstorm like politics has never before seen.
If Hillary is in trouble, President Obama could opt to suspend the election, and it could make any number of groups unleash, giving way to civil unrest.
“There’s nothing in the Constitution which requires a popular vote for the electors serving in the Electoral College,” says John Nagle, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame, meaning the body that officially elects presidents could convene without the general public voting.
It’s up to each state legislature to decide how they want to choose the state’s electors,” Nagle says. “It may be a situation in which the fact that we have an Electoral College, rather than direct voting for presidential candidates, may prove to be helpful.”
Congress would be up against a de facto December deadline, as the Constitution’s 20th Amendment requires that congressional terms expire Jan. 3 and presidential terms on Jan. 20. Though it’s conceivable to split legislative and presidential elections, they generally happen at the same time. Moreover, if the entire general election were to be moved to Jan. 3, Congress effectively would have voted themselves out of office.
Yale Law School professor Akhil Reed Amar considers in a 1994 article in the Arkansas Law Review the possibility of a special presidential election being pushed to after Jan. 20, with the speaker of the House serving as acting president until an election could pick “a real president for the remainder of the term.” But he tells U.S. News that scenario probably is far-fetched.
Is it possible for the election to be delayed until after Jan. 20, leaving both the offices of president and vice president temporarily vacant? Perhaps, Amar says, but “it wouldn’t make sense if it were permissible, given there are answers. Why would you ever do that?”
Amar recommends an up to a four-week postponement of Election Day if a candidate dies just before voting, or even if there’s a major terrorist attack.
Would you allow Obama to make a move like this share this if you disagree with him!
