The #NeverTrump crowd is searching desperately for a third party candidate, but none can seem to make their minds up on who to rally behind.
Even one face from the past has surfaced again – and ironically it’s someone who like Trump, was accused of not being a “true conservative.”
Among those prospects are Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), one of Trump’s most vocal Republican critics, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who suspended his presidential campaign in early May.
Kasich’s chief strategist John Weaver said the governor isn’t interested in running an an independent.
A Sasse spokesman declined to comment.
But it’s not looking to good for a late in the game third-party bid, according to the report.
Deadlines have passed to get on the ballot in big states like Texas, though organizers argue a legal challenge there would be successful.
H/T The Hill
It’s not even worth exerting the mental effort researching the rest of the third party candidates, as you and I have the same chance of becoming President as they do. Heck, according to the betting odds as of today, there’s a 0.1% chance that Mitt Romney would become President. That’s a lower probability than Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.
All running a conservative or libertarian leaning third party candidate would do is split the vote in Clinton’s favor.
If there’s anything to be learned from Ross Perot’s run in 1992, it’s that third party candidates give elections to Clintons.
