Bill Kristol Says 50-50 Chance that Anti-Trump Republicans Will Field an Independent Candidate — 6 Comments

  1. I dont really understand how a legitimate independent candidate could run at this point. They wont have ballot access or a real way to get it.

  2. In 1924, US Senator Robert La Follette declared as an independent progressive presidential candidate on July 4, 1924. He got on the ballot in 47 of the 48 states and was certainly considered a legitimate candidate. He carried Wisconsin and came in second in about six other states, and got 16% of the national vote.

  3. Trent–it would be difficult but it could be done. Richard–at the time hadn’t Robert LaFollette been campaigning for president unofficially as an independent for three years before then?

  4. How many $$$ TRILLIONS will the Donkeys spend to DIVIDE and CONQUER the Elephants ???

    Are the SCOTUS folks who have created the Prez MONARCHY happy every day ???

    — now that Civil WAR II is being set up (for all to see — except the brain dead blind).

  5. Back in the early decades of the 20th century, people didn’t really run for president, in advance of major party presidential candidates. La Follette wanted to be president, and was thought to be a contender for the Republican nomination in 1916, when delegates to him appeared on the North Dakota and Wisconsin presidential primaries. There was interest in him in 1920 also.
