Bernie's out of the race, you're a staunch critic of Trump. So who will you vote for? Given that this candidate is the presumptive nominee of his self-funded party, vote for Deez Nuts: http://www.elect-deez-nuts.com...

At the POTIS level, I dislike third parties. It is not good for the nation.

Because, as I have said, I think third parties at the POTUS level are divisive. I will not vote for Steine and will tell you how irritated I a by someone preaching to me about how to be a "liberal". I am a f**king liberal, and will fight the fight to change the national mind-set. I will not toss votes for financing for the fringe I represent.

1) Save state
2) No good option
3) I will NEVER vote third party for POTUS. Bad for the country.

I don't have to vote. If I were in a swing state, I would vote for Clinton in a heartbeat.

The reason is still not obvious to me. We have about 7 parties in our general election which can form a coalition to get the majority vote and it works fine. But then again we don't vote for presidential candidates, we vote for parties/ideologies.

That would be inaccurate, as both have ballot access in states which total more 270 electoral votes. Notice I said mathematically, not realistically.

You asking me? Nothing.

However, as noted, it will make no difference in my state. It will be blue regardless who I vote for.
