Gloria La Riva, presidential nominee of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, will be on more November 2016 ballots than will Evan McMullin, the independent presidential candidate backed by anti-Trump Republicans. La Riva’s name will be on ballots used by 20.9% of the voters, whereas McMullin’s name will be on ballots used by 15.66% of the voters.
The basis for this calculation is the presidential vote in November 2012. No one can know the number of voters in each state in November 2016, so the the number of votes cast in each state in November 2012 is used as an approximation.
Hillary Clinton, Gary Johnson, and Donald Trump will be on ballots used by all voters. Jill Stein will be on ballots used by 89.4% of voters. Constitution Party nominee Darrell Castle will be before 39.3% of the voters. Rocky De La Fuente will be before 26.4% of the voters. Alysson Kennedy of the Socialist Workers Party will be before 13.7% of the voters. No other presidential candidate’s name will be before as many as 6% of the voters.
It is conceivable that the shares for De La Fuente, La Riva, and McMullin could rise if they win various lawsuits, but it is unlikely any court will add any more names to ballots, even if the lawsuits eventually result in striking down certain state ballot access laws and practices.
