Trivia: Who picks the President if the Electoral College ties?
Speaker of the House
The correct answer is House
So why is this answer correct? : Per Article II of the Constitution, if the Electoral College somehow ends in a tie (it hasn’t in 200 years) the House has the power to name the next President. This decision was made because the House most closely represents the nation as a whole. The House has exercised this power twice in the history of the United States. The first time was in 1800 when Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr tied and the House appointed Jefferson. The second time occurred in 1824 when the House named John Quincy Adams President despite Andrew Jackson winning the popular vote.
