A number of polls show third party candidates may pull as much as 12% of the vote in some states. I believe this is a result of the constant mudslinging between Trump and Clinton. If someone truly believes in what Clinton and Trump are saying about each other, then we have two of the worst human beings for the presidency. Hillary belongs in jail for dishonesty, and Trump also, for sex offenses.
The third party candidates get off scot- free, because we all know they can’t win. Interviews are much easier, because there’s no checks of prior statements.
But between Trump and Clinton, a lot of the mudslinging is just not true:
Nice video on last debate:
I did catch about 5 of the lies in the debate. At least, I knew we were not energy independent, and never have been:
By the way, if oil prices go down, our dependence will go up. I hope to post more on the US energy future.
Of course, I knew there were NOT bombs all over the apartment where the San Bernadino couple lived. I just thought Trump had some source of someone seeing something suspicious in the apartment. Nope!
Next debate, I will have my list of 10 top lies, before Jake Tapper or anyone else can post theirs.
Finally, I think third party candidates are appearing move frequently in the media just to break up the monotony of the continual accusations between Trump and Clinton. You can blame this on CNN and others, all day all news format.
