According to a recent poll, 55% of voters and 91% of millenials support an Independent candidate for President. 65% said they would be willing to support a candidate who wasn’t Trump or Clinton. Has this contest become one of ‘who is the least unpopular’?
The Majority of Voters Want a Third Party Independent Candidate

Yes… yes it has.
The voters have elected Obama twice over our ‘chosen’ ones. More voters have now voted for Donald Trump than any past Republican nominee.
The voters have rejected our establishment nominees, they have rejected our conservative nominees, they have even rejected our ineligible nominees. We don’t have to be a political party responsive to our base, we could always demonstrate our relevancy like the TP’s, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, we could set up a card table in front of the library and tell folks of Glass/Stegall and Nazi bases on Mars.
The issue is not why people are unhappy with our (most-likely) nominees, but the issue is why the GOP couldn’t find a viable conservative candidate that resonated with the voters like The Donald? Trust me, the Windmill always wins the tilt.
Seems lately, I keep finding where Trump acts and talks more like an American, a Conservative, and a Republican than our electeds and our leadership. Go figure.
Yes, a splintered right is where this is headed.
Any more splintered we’d be sawdust. But what passes for right in Virginia leaves a lot to be desired. Practical conservatives rally around the nominee, faux conservatives pretend they can do otherwise.
Seems strange to use “faux” to describe conservatives who won’t support a non-conservative nominee. Maybe they’re faux republicans, but not faux conservatives. We now know that the right is made up of establishment, populists, and conservatives. Trump will get the first two. The conservatives are his problem.
Faux fits. It is not Conservative to facilitate the DEM agenda in any way, shape, or form.
It is not conservative to behave radically.
Trump has most conservatives, his simplecon shortage I don’t think hampers him.
The voters are there, but there’s no unifying standard-bearer.
