What's the best you can do as 3rd Party Candidate?


Recommended Posts

yeah... but that's not strategic voting (which we were talking about).

Strategic voting is really to vote for another candidate than your first choice, because you don't believe he has a chance. For exemple, a pro-Nader voting Kerry (assuming he could have vote for Nader in his state).

No, because that (voting for the less bad option) is still voting for the best choice.

So, all that to say: in reality, strategic voting (as I described in previous posts) is pretty rarely used by the electors. Of course, some events may bring the percentage higher or lower, but generally it's about at 5%

.

even if u think another candidate is better? isn't that not voting for the best choice?

That's what I meant. That (this word, "that", refers to voting for the less bad option) is still voting for the best choice.

You just misunderstood my sentance (or I wrote it badly, take your pick). Strategic voting is really voting for your second-choice, because you don't believe voting for your number 1 will allow him to get elected anyways.
