It's 2016. The Republican ticket is Donald Trump/Chris Christie and the Democratic ticket is Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren.
In response to this, two new tickets announce an independent bid- Michael Bloomberg/Jon Huntsman and Paul Ryan/Marco Rubio.
Meanwhile, the Libertarians nominate Rand Paul, who runs with a Rand Paul/Justin Amash ticket. The Greens remain with the same ticket, and there's no McMullin.

What's the result? Discuss, with maps if possible in this crowded field.

You've throughly divided the right wing and centrist votes. Sanders will win.

I think it would be taken to the house and the country will have an aneurysm

As a previous poster said, the 'conservative' votes would be too diluted in this scenario, allowing Bernie to win.  Here's how I would tweak the scenario to balance it out.  Clinton/Kaine still get the D nomination.  Bernie runs an I ticket with Ellison as his running mate.  The other tickets are as stated by the OP.



Reality show host Donald Trump (R-NY)/Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ): 261 EV
Sec. Hillary Clinton (D-NY)/Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA): 180 EV
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)/Rep. Keith Ellison (I-MN): 69 EV
Speaker Paul Ryan (I-WI)/Sen. Marco Rubio (I-FL): 20 EV
Sen. Rand Paul (L-KY)/Rep. Justin Amash (L-MI): 8 EV
Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I-NY)/Ambassador Jon Huntsman (I-UT): 0 EV
Dr. Jill Stein (G-MA)/Activist Ajamu Baraka (G-IL): 0 EV

Trump falls just short of clinching the election, so it goes to Congress.  House members choose between Trump, Clinton, and Sanders.  The GOP majority elects Trump, while the Dem minority largely votes for Clinton with a handful going for Bernie.  The Senate casts a party line vote in favor of Christie over Kaine.

Bernie in a landslide.  You basically have 3 Republicans running against him, 4 if you add Johnson (Jill Stein by the way wouldn't have run if Bernie was the Democratic nominee).

Regardless of what some people believe, Hillary Clinton is still a liberal Democrat, even if she isn't as liberal as some would have hoped.
It would likely end up with Sanders, Clinton, and Trump as the top three, with the House electing Trump. And since we're going out on limbs here, I predict riots.
