Your Alternative To Hillary & Donald – the Libertarians and Greens

It’s coming closer to election time and it’s hard to shake the feeling that something crazy or unprecedented could happen in the coming months. However, regardless of what happens, for better or worse, the Libertarians and Greens will likely leave their stamp on this election. Hopefully it’s one that ends up being a net positive for the future. Below is a cheat sheet on these third party presidential candidates.

The comments above and below are excerpts from an article by Jeff Desjardins (VisualCapitalist.com) which may have been enhanced – edited ([ ]) and abridged (…) – by  munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!)  to provide you with a faster & easier read.

For the first time in almost 20 years, the third party candidates – Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Jill Stein (Green) – are getting attention across the board from the millennial crowd (where they garner around 40% of voter support) to the general electorate (where average poll numbers are more muted with Johnson averaging 9% and Stein 3%). Regardless of how Johnson and Stein fare, however, this year could symbolize a resurgence for third-party candidates in the national conversation.

Some people will consider a vote for a third-party candidate as a waste, and others will condemn it as a mere “protest” vote. Likely, however, some people will also consider Johnson and Stein as the candidates that best reflect their values, and they’ll consider the “lesser of two evils” argument to be one without merit.
