Erick Erickson throws cold water on Bill Kristol's David French Third Party Idea...



I agree with Erick about not having a conservative third party challenger, but from a different perspective.  I do not care for Trump, disagree with a lot of his positions, and question whether he will be at all conservative.  But (while likely bad) I do not think Trump will be worse than Hillary (anyone who can drive Barack Obama apoplectic can't be all bad) and suspect he can win in this race. So far Gary Johnson's inclusion is actually helping Trump. The only way a third party challenger makes sense is if that person can deny Clinton and Trump 270 electoral votes and send this matter to the House


I like David French a lot, but I doubt he would have enough support to get on the debate stage with Trump and Clinton.  It is probably too late for this sort of challenge, unless you have a lot of name recognition and money. 

I am not going to vote for Trump (unless there is some significant shift between now and November), but I am not going to assist Hillary either. Trump will have to prevail on his own (at least without my assistance). I will absolutely not help #CrookedHillary.  

Erik wants to defeat Trump and Trump supporters with a Trump loss.  Fair enough.  While I find some Trump supporters (a minority of them) objectionable and do not want to associate with them on anything, most of them are people fed up with the current two party system selling out their interests. While I disagree with them on their choice, I understand their frustration and life goes on. I want to see Hillary lose and only hope Trump turns out to be better than she is.   

It is unfortunate the establishment GOP threw Ted Cruz under the bus for Trump, but it is what it is. 



Hogwash: Depending on your state, vote smart

    Sorry but that's complete b.s. If you stay home (or vote third party)you ARE helping Hillary. And really all you conservative true believers who accepted the vote of right-wing populists for all these losers (Ford, Bush I '92, Dole, McCain, Romney)as the only acceptable choice to NOW take your ball and go home is REALLY punk-@ss behavior!

    1. Yeah, that's the argument to make me jump on the Trump Train.

    Yes, because when you've been shooting yourself in the foot for years, the proper thing to do is remain consistent instead of STOPPING the stupid behavior.
