dc. Posted July 14, 2016 Share Posted July 14, 2016 Quinnipiac is not high on my list of trusted polls. I saw another poll today that showed Trump with literally 0% support among blacks in PA at the same time the Quinnipiac poll came out. I'm doing more digging on both now. To 538 I go! Meanwhile - two statements of disagreement: 1. I just don't think in the current system that any third party candidate could really win a state - or major state - without some real sea change. It can't just be a few people like Jill Stein. It would have to be "people starting joining the Green Party" 2. I don't see the feasibility or efficacy of saying a candidate can't be in a political party. I see the idea, but the reality is we'd be blocking parties from funding campaigns. But if Clinton has been a democrat for 30 years and then decides to run for office... what does forcing her to drop her party name actually do? I guess more generally it could just limit the influence by how we talk about candidates... but I think you'd just see a whole lot of articles that read, "Clinton, a favorite of the Ds" instead of "Clinton (D)" ...
