#3 The idea of a serious third party challenger in the US is deader that ever. The sort of people who wanted to vote for Ross Perot or John Anderson actually believed the system could be reformed. Present circumstances put paid to that swell fairytale notion.

#5 Trump's was a third party run that took over the GOP instead of running against them.

I suspect Trump's base is made up of ex-Perot voters and tea-party voters, and Evangelicals that were jerked around and taken for granted by the Old Boys Club/Neo-con coalition that controlled the party after Reagan.

#6 But Trump used the party against itself. Nothing third party about that.

#7 Agreed, but he came from outside and remade the party.

Most third party bids stay outside and have no chance.

#8 Most all third party bids stay outside and have no chance.

So we mostly agree...

#9 Yes, technically he's not a third party candidate. He worked within the rules to create a a new coalition within the GOP. The new coalition was comprised of folks that had been screwed or ignored by the previous coalitions so they aren't likely to turn on him.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
