I don't think it's going to matter. Congress has over turned popular vote before, and with it being a strong Republican congress at the moment, I fully expect it to happen again.
The Electoral College has overturned the popular vote--not Congress. It has not happened that often. Some of the states with large electoral vote counts are Democratic states, so do not count on the Republican congress picking the president.
From my understanding of the Electoral College, it's made up of basically the house of representatives, which means that they would vote pretty much whoever their respective parties wanted in.

While I notice two on the right have voted your answer down, I also note neither one could answer the question, what does Romney actually stand for? Interesting how easy it is to fault others and yet not offer an answer. Just saying.....
I understand inaction on gas prices being seen as relevant, but if they step in on gas prices in a free economy, then where will they draw the line on stepping in? Just something to think about.
