so Biden is assured bigger victory.
Key is everyone vote, get friends to vote and explain how every vote not for Biden is a vote for Trump and am end to our 250 year old democracy.

Honestly Trump showed how much money can be made running for office, no surprise more people trying to cash that ticket.

are more similar than you realize, at least to those unhappy with the system. It used yo be that third party candidates would take votes from Dem candidates but since tRump things have changed. I wish I could find the clip that explained it on MSNBC 2 weeks ago. It made a lot of sense.

Magats won't switch and I do get the RFK appeal especially with his vax crap. But Stein, at least policy was, is left wing. I can't even see moderate or even disinterested Republicans going for her. We need a strong Libertarian candidate to get involved. With the Republicans lurching toward theocracy maybe that will siphon off voters. IT DID ME in 92 and 96 when I rejected the Republic Party for the Libertarians.

With Kennedy & West counted in Morning Consult polls in Wisc, NC, Pa, Nevada, Georgia, Az - Trump is ahead. Only in Michigan is Biden one point ahead with Kennedy & West included.


Bloomberg has similar results

This map shows the percentage of the popular vote Jill Stein earned in each county.
On Election Day, Stein finished in 4th with over 1,457,216 votes (more than the previous three Green tickets combined) and 1.07% of the popular vote. However, she finished three million votes under Gary Johnson as the Greens once again finished behind the Libertarian Party, though they did gain more votes than Independent candidate Evan McMullin and Constitution Party candidate Darrell Castle.[7]

At the state level, Stein exceeded 2% vote share in Hawaii (12,737, or 2.97%), Oregon (50,002, or 2.50%) and Vermont (6,758, or 2.14%).[35] She won her most votes in California (278,657, or 1.96%). In 22 other states, she crossed 1% of the vote. Although she did not win any counties or congressional districts, Stein placed third in 23 counties and 18 congressional districts nationally.[35] The Stein-Baraka ticket received their highest percentage of the vote in Sioux County, North Dakota (10.39%), while also surpassing five percent in Humboldt County and Mendocino County, California.[35]

24. So what if Stein is running?
Thu Nov 9, 2023, 09:52 PM

A Libertarian will run and get 3 times the votes or more from the Republican. About 5 people are going to vote for Cornell West. RFK supposedly pulls more votes from Trump. How many Biden voters are saying, “I like Biden on the environment and stance on workers, but I wish he was an anti-vax conspiracy nut”? Not sure what to make of no labels but are we sure they will even run anyone? I’m not sure whoever they run will have much Joe-mentum. (Lieberman not Biden)

want trump to win, regardless what their lying mouths say.

One thing I am quite sure you will see, because we saw it in 2016, Democracy Now, and MSM outlets pushing their candidacies.

Anyone one who votes for a third party candidate is voting for Trump, no matter what their lying asses say.
