Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Harris is pretty far to the left in the context of American politics.

An October surprise is a standard feature of second-term presidential election campaigns. Belarus would be an opportunity, perhaps. It's easy to think up a suitable scenario.

Each state controls its own voting system. If many the states cannot come up with clear winners because of incompetent ballot counting processes, and the electoral college cannot come to agree on a candidate with an absolute majority of electoral college votes, then the election is put to the house of representatives. In such a contingent election case, each state gets one vote. 30 states out of 50 voted for Trump last time around.
