IF anyone was to drop out, and run third-party now. Questions.Submitted by ArsenalGunners11 on Tue, 03/27/2012 - 15:53
I am NOT saying Ron Paul. I want Ron Paul to stick to whatever his plan and his advisors plan is.
But, here are a couple scenario's I've been wondering about:
Gary Johnson for example dropped out of the Republican Party, and is now running on the Libertarian platform.
Is he on the ballot in all 50 states as a libertarian? How difficult would it be to get on the ballot for the general election in all 50 states?
Each state of course is different, and we all clearly have seen cases where only Paul & Romney were on the Virginia primary ballot, because all others did not collect at least 10,000 signatures before the required deadline/date.
So now, let's say Gingrich dropped out today and decided to run third party in the new 'Big Ego Party'.
Would it be easier for him to get on each states ballot for the general election in March, as opposed to waiting until after the Republican national convention in August?
Any good links or answers would be appreciated. *
