    Wow, after my vote it was:
    5 : no votes
    33: Clinton
    33: Bush
    5: undecided
    33: other.

    Talk about close. If the demographics at DP are any reflection of reality, it should be interesting.

    If there was an independent candidate with mass appeal... hmm

    Before the war is ended, the war party assumes the divine right to denounce and silence all opposition to war as unpatriotic and cowardly.

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    From multiple years of experience, it doesn't.

    No online political foru mis going to be a good indication of reality in normal demographics. Those heavily involved in politics enough to actually go onto a website and spend significant time discussing it are likely going to include a far larger percentage of people being open to the notion of voting third party comparitive to the general public.

    A better idea of where the nation stands is Gallup's Party Affiliation/identification poll which they usually do once a month. As of 30 September here is where the nation stands as far as party affiliation.

    Republican 26%
    Democrat 30%
    Independent 42%
    Independent lean Republican 18%
    Independent lean Democrat 18%
    true Independent 6%
    Third Party 2%

    So in a general election if the Democrats get their people to the polls they have a distinct advantage. That is nationwide. Now each state varies and I do not have the figures on a state by state basis.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    There is too much for an independent candidate to overcome. The election laws of this country are written by Republicans and Democrats as a mutual protection act. They are written to keep third parties and independents off the ballot and have been strengthen since Perot's run. Secondly is financial, all the money coming in from corporations, Wall Street, Lobbyist, Special Interests etc. goes to the two major parties. They will not donate to third parties. So not only would an independent have to overcome the present election laws just to get on the ballot, he would have to be independently wealthy and willing to spend close to a billion dollars or more of his own money.

    In 2012 Obama spent a billion dollars to get elected, Romney spent a billion dollars to challenge him, in third place was Gary Johnson who spent almost 3 million. Being outspent 2 billion to 2 million, Johnson didn't have a chance to even get his message heard. I voted for Gary.

    I think Jeb Bush isn't a really republican.

    A RINO, eh?
    Which "real' Republican would you support?
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
