On Monday, Fox News correspondent Chad Pergram laid out a potential plan by the Democrat’s to install speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as president.

Pergram explained that voting delays and disruptions this year may allow Pelosi to take the reins of the United States if the “counting” process takes long enough.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano made a similar case earlier in the month.

“President Trump’s term ends at precisely noon on Jan. 20, 2021. If the Electoral College has not yet named a successor, presumably either Donald Trump or Joe Biden, then whoever is the speaker of the House would become the acting president of the United States,” the judge said.

“If the Democrats retain their majority in the House, and it appears likely that they will, but if they do, and if they choose Mrs. Pelosi, knowing at that point that they’re choosing the president of the United States, then it would be she.”

“Stated simply, whoever is the sitting speaker of the United States, would become president at noon on Jan. 20, 2021, if the Electoral College has failed to elect someone,” he said.

But her tenure might be short-lived. Under a process laid out in the Constitution, if the Electoral College does not cast ballots on who won a presidential election, the matter is decided in the House of Representatives. But it’s not a straight vote by all 435 lawmakers. Instead, each state casts a unified ballot — one state, one vote.

Twenty-seven states have a majority of Republican representatives, 22 have a majority of Democrats, with one state tied. That means that while Pelosi might be a temporary president, but if there is never an official outcome, Republicans in the House would eventually pick their candidate: Donald Trump.

“That has happened,” Napolitano said of that scenario. “That’s how Thomas Jefferson was elected the first time around in 1800.”

Multiple people and groups have been sounding the alarm in recent weeks over a potential contested election in 2020 due to the problems that arise with mass mail-in voting.

On Tuesday, Josh Mendelsohn, CEO of a Democratic analytics firm named Hawkfish, made a startling prediction that President Trump may win the 2020 election on election day however Biden may actually win days later with mail-in ballots.

“The reason we talk about a red mirage is in fact because we believe that on election night, we’re going to see Donald Trump in a stronger position than the reality actually is,” Mendelsohn said. “We are sounding an alarm and saying that this is a very real possibility, that the data is going to show on election night an incredible victory for Donald Trump.

“That is likely to be what we see when every legitimate vote is tallied, and we get to that final day which will be Sunday after Election Day, it will, in fact, show that what happened on election night was exactly that, a mirage,” he added. “It looked like Donald Trump was in the lead and he fundamentally was not when every ballot gets counted.”

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

Hawkfish estimates that a record 40% of registered voters will send their ballots through the mail this election cycle, roughly doubling the number that did so in 2016, because of the coronavirus pandemic. Several states and localities that have held primaries amid the pandemic have struggled under an avalanche of mail-in ballots, a potential bellwether, or what is to come in a national election.

In New York City, election officials discarded over 84,000 ballots, more than 20% of those sent in, for defects such as a missing signature or for a late arrival during its primary. In many cases, the ballots themselves were to blame, or the prepaid envelopes sent with them, or the process of voting by mail. Election results for several races were delayed for well over a month.

The Trump administration has been warning about the risks of universal mail-in ballots for months.

Mendelsohn hinted that the election chaos may cause a repeat of the presidential election saga of 2000 between former Vice President Al Gore and President George W. Bush. A recount of votes in Florida triggered a 36-day delay in election results. This time around, however, what happened in Florida may happen across several battleground states with tight margins.

“So a state like Pennsylvania or Florida, it’s in play by just a couple points, and that’s what tips it in one direction or another,” Mendelsohn said. “If you were to essentially average battleground state polling, Joe Biden appears to be ahead by about 8%. And so if you have a number of ballot challenges in a state like that, as big as it is, as large as the population is, as diverse as the population is, it could make a really big difference over those next ten days.”

“When you start accounting for that in your modeling, you see that 8% lead kind of whittle down a little, a little bit more, and a little bit more. We might have the results saying something on the evening of Nov. 3 that it will not say the evening of Nov. 10,” he continued.
