Even if Jill Stein or Gary Johnson came close to “spoiling” the election for Trump or Hillary it’s ludicrous to blame someone for voting who they think is the most qualified. Frankly, it’s victim blaming to scold disenfranchised voters for refusing to back candidates who are part of the problem.

Lately on social media I’ve read a lot of people express big disappointment with the 2 party system. I had a feeling voter turnout for 3rd parties would be higher in this election cycle as compared to others in recent years. So far both Gary Johnson and Jill Stein of the Green party have grabbed roughly about 5% of the vote. Additionally, that number could rise higher since a few states are still counting ballots. While that percentage is not near enough to obtain electoral votes, the norm for 3rd party candidates is usually less than 1%.
I’ve have an interesting article copied down below that echoes and elaborates on some of the things I wrote about in my last blog.

Even The Young Turks who has been nothing but a cheerleader for Hillary since her nomination is beginning to have doubts. Not only are the “Deplorables” in social media questioning Clinton’s “strong” poll numbers but many of the BernieOrBust crowd who are now backing Jill Stein are also saying she’s at big risk of losing to Trump. I think that says a lot since they don’t really like either of these 2 big candidates.

Not long after the conclusion of the 2016 Democratic primary , some volunteers and statisticians got together to investigate the election results. The group is called Election Justice USA and they came up with some rather interesting statistics.
If you read the PDF linked below you can tell there’s a big difference between poll numbers and the vote count on the Democrat side. In fact, in some states the polls vs vote count was way beyond the margin of error and this implies voter fraud may have taken place.

Even though all the votes are not counted they still show that Trump (not surprisingly) won in most of the states. The polls has repeatedly showed that Ted Cruz would get Texas. That wasn’t surprising since candidates tend to get at least their home state.
What completely surprised me though was that Bernie Sanders won Oklahoma as ppl kept saying Hillary was in the lead.
Super Tuesday is the ultimate test to see who will likely get nominated. I think it’s pretty safe to say that this coming November it’ll ultimately be between Trump and Hillary (god damn it)…..
I will seriously consider voting 3rd party this year since I don’t think neither has what it takes to fix shit….
