What Happens If No U.S Presidential Candidate Gets 270 Electoral Votes? by Available247: 7:38am On Nov 04, 2020
A tie in the 2020 presidential election would create the “messiest” possible Electoral College scenario — with the House of Representatives tasked with deciding the winner, according to experts.

In the unlikely event that President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden become locked in a 269-269 tie, the House will break it, with each state delegation getting one vote, according to 270 to Win, a nonpartisan political website that projects elections.

“If neither candidate gets a majority of the 538 electoral votes, the election for President is decided in the House of Representatives, with each state delegation having one vote. A majority of states (26) is needed to win. Senators would elect the Vice-President, with each Senator having a vote. A majority of Senators (51) is needed to win.

Out of 538 college votes . There is no way a winner will not emerge. The threshold is just too clear.

Most unlikely. But if it happens. The House of Representatives will vote to elect the President while the senate will vote to elect the VP. That's the position of the Law. But , this scenario of 269- 269 is most unlikely
