Wasted Vote for a third party or write-in candidate or spoiler for certain parties candidacies? Everyone blames Ralph Nader for Gore losing the 2000 election but no one tends to bring up the fact that if it weren’t for Ross Perot, we probably would have had another Bush Sr. term.
Electorally it looks like Hillary Clinton should have a lock on the election. But assuming it is close as it was in 2000 and a third party candidate should win just one state allowing for neither Clinton or Trump to reach 270 Electoral Votes. Then it goes to congress to decide among the top THREE electoral vote getters. Given the disdain for Trump and the fear Clinton could spell doom for the Democrats in 2020, Congress may want a third party to give them time to fix their own parties over the next four years.
What say you?
