No president has ever been elected in November. The popular vote does not elect a president; the vote of the Electoral College elects a president. The date to count the Electoral College vote is set by law and cannot be delayed without passing a new law. It is legally and constitutionally impermissible to have a delay in announcing the winner in the presidential race. Nancy Pelosi cannot legally or constitutionally be “acting” president due to a delay caused by counting votes. Fake news alert! It is a deliberately false narrative that the speaker of the House would be appointed as acting president if the popular votes are not all counted by Jan. 20, 2021.
