This is why you are wrong.

Any party that receives at least 5% of the popular vote automatically gets Federal campaign funding in the next election cycle.

A vote for a third party candidate is playing the “long game”. While no one expects a third party candidate to win this current election, it guarantees that our preferred third party has a real chance of making a splash in the next one.

Your article is heavy on the overreaction, and light on the facts. There is only so much Trump can do.

I don’t think anyone on Medium would dispute that Trump would be a disastrous president. But the word “disastrous” needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Italy had Silvio Berlusconi as their Prime Minister FOUR TIMES over nearly 20 years, and they’ve got a down economy, but are otherwise all alive and doing alright.

A vote for a third party, is a vote for the big picture and for a long term goal. Yes, it might help Trump (moreso in specific states, less so in others). But on the whole, if you are a true believer in your third party, you should not compromise your vote.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
