Look at the different combinations of states possible for a tie this year. If this happens, it could be President Romney and Vice President Biden, if the Senate stays Democrat http://www.270towin.com/presidentia...main=FL,PA,OH,MI,NC,VA,WI,CO,IA,NV,NH&me=&ne= It is obvious the House will remain Republican which elects the President in case of a tie. Each state gets one vote. That means the one represenative from Wyoming has as much vote as the 55 together from California. In the Senate, I believe it is one Senator, one vote. It is possible to have two different parties for President and VP in this case.
