Highly recommended video about how the election process plays out if a losing candidate doesn't concede. The election results are thrown out and the House of Representatives will vote for a president. But instead of each representative getting a vote, each state gets a vote, and since there are more red states than blue states, it's possible Trump will win.

Here's hoping it doesn't come to that, but I wouldn't be surprised if it does.
