Exactly, Like what happened in '92 with 3 candidates. Perot took about 20% of the vote, much of it from GHWB.<quoted text>
The problem is that if you vote for anybody but a Republican or Democrat, you are just handing the seat to somebody you might really hate. If the TP ever became a party and you voted for their candidate, you helped give us four years of Hillary.
BUT, IF voting for the 3rd party wakes up one of the others, it may be worth it.
