53% See Third-Party Candidate As Likely President in Next 10 to 12 Years.

Voters see little chance of a third-party candidate being elected president next year, but most think one has a shot at the White House a little further down the road.

Only 27% of Likely U.S. Voters believe 2012 is a good year for voters to consider electing a third-party candidate, given a choice between President Obama and one of the potential Republican candidates. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% don’t think next year’s a good time to consider a third-party candidate, but that’s down from 53% in early June. Twenty-six percent (26%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

These Things Turn on a Dime

If the GOP does not nominate Ron Paul, it may not survive as a dominant party.

I guess I'll keep working for the LP, in case we need some better candidates.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Liars. Nearly every one of them.

They will continue to be duped by the MSM and vote for one of the two knuckleheads of the two headed hydra we call Republocrats.

Sorry, the closest they came to demonstrating otherwise was Perot, and now the system has been fixed to make that re-occurrence nearly impossible. As it is, so many people who did vote Perot steadfastly vow - never again. They saw it as simply "wasting their vote" and that Perot only managed to "throw the election" to Bill Clinton. These morons think unless you consolidate behind the MSM pick that opposes the other MSM pick, you are actually casting a vote for the one you don't want.

Logic was never their strong suit.

I don't expect it to magically change.

Remember, many of these same people still think Al Qaeda attacked us "because we're free."
