I think it would be irresponsible for Bloomberg to run. He won't win. All he's going to do is siphon votes off from the left and hand the election over to Trump or Cruz or whoever. It's Nader all over gain. Never, ever forget that if Nader had just stayed out of the race, GEORGE W. BUSH NEVER WOULD HAVE BEEN PRESIDENT. Also worth noting that if all those conscience-voting Nader voters in 2000 had just voted for Gore, GEORGE W. BUSH NEVER WOULD HAVE BEEN PRESIDENT.

This shouldn't be able to happen again.

I mean, best case scenario, he actually manages to win enough electoral college votes that no one has 270 at the end of the night and then chaos reigns.

There's no good reason for him to run. He needs to stay out.

Trump and Sanders already have a rogueish independence that bucks the party system. Another outsider like Bloomberg won't find much to work with.

If Hillary or Bernie gets 269 and and Bloomberg gets 1 or 200, GOP is golden. Then it goes to states to vote. Each state gets one vote. Votes are cast by their congressional delagation. 33 states are controlled by GOP
In 1968 3rd party candidate won many electoral college votes, but Nixon got past the 270

All this thread is serving to do is remind me how awful the American election system is, at least at the POTUS level.

National Popular Vote = +Democrats

Electors awarded by Congressional District = +Republicans (Maine & Nebraska rule)

Electors awarded by State = Push

We are a Christian nation.
If Bernie wants to be president he should apologize for his people killing Jesus.

If people really believed that Trump wouldn't be leading. They're just words.

Supreme Court is a big reason why I want Cruz to be our next president. He knows the legal system and will make great SC picks; then we can start getting stuff done. President Cruz will bring us back to the values of the constitution.

Providence will guide Cruz to select qualified justices in the mold of Scalia and Alito.

Big fan of Scalia. I hope we can get 4 more justices just like him.

Hey it's the Nader cost the election fallacy!

More democrats voted for George Bush in Florida than they did for Nader.

Quote:
In Florida, CNN’s exit polling showed Nader taking the same amount of votes from both Republicans and Democrats: 1 percent. Nader also took 4 percent of the independent vote. At the same time,13 percent of registered Democrats voted for Bush!Again, Gore couldn’t hold his own base and because of this, he lost. The Democrats don’t say one word about the fact that 13 percent of their own party members voted for Bush.
Al Gore being an awful candidate cost Al Gore the election. Blame him.

The two party system is a sham. It's time to die a quick and utterly painful death. The candidates for both parties are absolute jokes.
