Dealing With Wasted Vote Concerns

The Wall Street Journal reports on a new campaign strategy that helps voters unhappy with their party's presidential choice trade votes with someone from another party that feels the same way. The idea being you don't like Trump, you go to the web site and find a Democrat that doesn't like Clinton. Then both agree to vote third party:

“You can’t vote third-party ‘cause for Republicans that’s a vote for Hillary and for Democrats it’s a vote for Trump,” the character explains, “so you stick with the candidate you don’t like to stop the one you hate, splitting the nation in two.”

The idea makes sense, assuming you can trust the other guy to vote third party and not just trick you into "wasting your vote". Anybody here want to give it a try?

Supreme court picks aren't on the ballot. Admit it, you like Trump better. Don't be embarrassed. You get what you wish....

We have to accept the situation. Hillary or Donald will be the next president. Not voting, or voting 3rd party means you avoid making a choice.

This is the only guy worth voting for, imo. Taxation is theft. Drug war is immoral. No govt in marriage, church, or education. Get back in you box you scumbags, says the 1st LT Marine, Darrell Castle.
