I think it is more about a third party. People want out of the establishment parties. The Libertarian choice is the one this year. 08', the Constitution party was considered a next choice.
It would seem that those that are "blanks" and the Independents are the key. A third party that catches them, would be the top third party.
Ventura's "No party", a new party, would do that. However, Ventura himself, no matter how much I like him, is not the right guy.
I don't know if the Libertarian party can become thee third party. Some polling of Independents would help. But I think, if the party has already been an established party, that alone might be the deterrent for that block.
