A Third Of Americans Are Considering A Third-Party Candidate
Dissatisfaction with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has created an opportunity for third parties.By Ben Lawson | August 21, 2016
Some Americans are really unhappy with their two choices for president — so much so that a surprising amount of people are considering voting for a third-party candidate.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll found that 35 percent of respondents are considering voting for a third-party candidate.
The Libertarian Party nominee, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, is polling at 8 percent, and Green Party nominee Dr. Jill Stein is sitting at 4 percent. So they aren't exactly threatening the mainstream nominees.
