Was watching one of the Sunday morning shows last week and was surprised to hear Dan Rather of all people predict that this would be an election where viable third party could well emerge. Organizations like https://www.nolabels.org/ and https://goooh.com/ have already attracted a lot of support. The biggest stumbling block to a viable third party in the past has been ballot access in all 50 states. Not many realize that this problem has been all but solved for the coming election cycle. The "No Labels" group in particular has already assured that any candidate they nominate will be on the ballot countrywide. I wanted to start a thread where members of the community can discuss the possibility of a third party candidate, and who they might support. One simple request: please do not dismiss the possibility WITHOUT first investigating the sites above.
Correction: americans elect is the group working w No Labels to secure ballot access The article linked below explains this process well: https://www.sunjournal.com/state/story/1097291 Here is the website for Americans Elect: https://www.americanselect.org/
Wanted to post about an increasingly attractive solution: https://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/10/americans-elect-aims-to-by... For anyone else disaffected w Obama and also completely unimpressed with the slate of buffoons on the Republican side, it seems to me third party is the way to think. https://www.americanselect.org/
