With the 2016 Presidential campaign in full swing, the whole country has its focus on the candidates pursuing the dream of becoming our nation’s next great leader. But the person who might be the next great president probably won’t win. This is so because he/she is most likely a part of a third party group, which does not get attention equal to Republicans or Democrats. But is it because the American people don’t vote enough for the third party? Or is the government just making it impossible for there ever to be a president is not one of the big two.
This article explains the very extensive process that the presidential voting goes through and how the people’s vote ultimately has very little say in the matter. It states that it would be nearly impossible for a third party to win because it is set up so that the Electoral College has the final say.
This will be useful because the third party runners may be the best option for presidency, but will most likely never get there due to government interference,
This page displays tables and graphs on information from the 2008 presidential election. It shows the projected outcome of red states and blue states along with the stereotypes that are associated with them.
This is useful because these numbers could be very different and the stereotypes greatly changed if a third party group was thrown into the state color vs. state color.
This article explains why America needs to have a third party in this year’s race to make a difference in the way things have been done over recent years.
Americans want to have a third party run for president, but it has not been able to reach a competitive point in recent years due to lack of candidates. This article will certainly help show that the American people are more than open for change in our government.
This page has an interesting fact in it that states that people labeled as “independents” are the majority now over republicans and democrats. If there ever is a third party candidate that garners enough attention, he/she may certainly have the backing to make some noise in the polls.
