‘Giant Meteor for President’ in Three-way Tie With Trump and Hillary Among Independent Voters

Brexit, Giant Meteor, I suppose we should be wary of the current wave of populism..


‘Giant Meteor for President’ in Virtual Three-way Tie With Trump and Hillary Among Independent Voters

In what has become a presidential race based almost solely on scorn for the candidates, the establishment, fraud at the polls — and, hell, the entirely stale and wholly rigged electoral process — it’s clear no one will win in the traditional meaning of the word.
While third party candidates have experienced growing success in the dearth of acceptable duopoly offerings, a dark horse has emerged.

According to Public Policy Polling, ‘Giant Meteor for President’ now ranks as a serious contender — garnering “far more support than the third party candidates actually on the ballot.”

Meteor’s, well, meteoric rise in popularity isn’t difficult to understand, given the circumstances. After all, another poll today revealed a whopping 67 percent of Democratic voters would rather see President Obama stay in office for another term than endure a Hillary Clinton administration.

In addition to aversion to Clinton, Trump’s success could be attributed to the xenophobic vitriol and ‘fearanoid’ negativity common during similar periods of economic stratification that gave rise to such stunners as Adolf Hitler.

Maybe now — in a year pockmarked by political turmoil, typically ruinous scandal, and blatantly fraudulent electoral dealings — the people will slam down their collective foot to say they’ve finally had enough of the ‘lesser of two evils’ bullshit so ingrained in the American electoral mindset.

1. I would go for a small meteor that makes a lot of noise does not kill anyone.

I am tired of self serving politicians and their delusional followers. Also when you elect a politician you should not be electing the family, no expectations for family members.

4. Aren't most independents really republicans?

 

This article could have been titled 'Hillary wins one thirds of independent republican leaning voters'

And I love Hillary but I too may have said I'd prefer another term of Obama. With every new president comes upheaval and people don't want upheaval.
