Will POTUS Election Be Decided By House of Reps?

We often take for granted that THE WINNER OF A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IS NOT WHO GETS THE MOST VOTES OR THE MOST ELECTORAL VOTES, BUT THE CANDIDATE WHO GETS 270+ ELECTORAL VOTES.

It would be interesting (to say the least) if in this election where a lot of us dislike both major party candidates if neither one hits 270.

What happens then? The House of Representatives chooses the next President, and while Democrats and Republicans will both presumably vote for someone from their party THEY ARE NOT BOUND TO PICK EITHER CLINTON OR TRUMP!!!

So, picture this — what if the Republicans win a majority of the House, and THE REPUBLICAN HOUSE MEMBERS CHOOSE SOMEONE OTHER THAN TRUMP because, as we all know, Trump is not well-liked among them?!?!?!?!
