• Q: Two, Three, or More Candidates for 2024?

    “Which one of the three candidates would you want your daughter to marry?”  

    – Ross Perot

    1992 was the last presidential election with a significant third candidate challenge for the White House.   In the end, Ross Perot received 18.9% of the popular vote, over 19 million votes, but no electoral college votes.  Bill Clinton won with over 44 million votes and 370 electoral votes over George Bush.

    For the 2024 election, independent, third-party, and primary challengers are lined up to run for the United States Presidency.  According to Pew, support for more political parties is higher among voters under 50.

    Do you believe that multiple candidates strengthen our electoral process?  What will it take for you to throw your support away from Biden or Trump?  What matters to you: age, policy, or experience?

    One, Two, Three, or More Candidates for 2024?

      As much as I would like someone else to run for president, I don’t think they have a chance. Our system is too strict and doesn’t allow for a third party to have a real chance. Money has become so important, so how can an independent candidate raise enough money to be competitive with the Democratic and Republican candidates?

      Age is important, but as long as they are not too old, policy and experience matter the most. Biden and Trump are too old and do not really understand what my generation wants. I feel disconnected from our politics when I watch and listen to Biden or Trump. Even if they were younger, I would disagree with them.

      I want to vote for someone different than Trump or Biden, but I haven’t seen a good alternative. One good thing is that the ones who are thinking of challenging them are much younger than they are. I want someone who is closer in age to me and can understand my world. I don’t think Biden or Trump have any idea about how we talk about things that are important to us.
