Too many people don't remember (or care) how bad Crist was the first time around.
I don't know a lot about Wyllie but my impression in the research so far is he may be pulling the Libertarian card more for publicity than as an actual ethos.
He's card-carrying, of course, but I've seen a lot of non-Libertarian positions so far.
From experience I can say it is different talking about voting for a third party candidate than actually doing it when you get to the polls.
Which is a total bummer.
I had made up my mind to vote for Johnson in 2012 but when I got there I swayed between Romney (voted for him in the primary) and Johnson. Finally went with Johnson.
Same here... It's hard to vote for someone when you know they're not going to win... But you still gotta believe that your vote actually means something. I don't know anything about this Wyllie guy, but I'll definitely take a look at him...
Wyllie certainly isn't Harry Browne, but what aren't you a fan of?
I'm more libertarian than any of the other political designations but .... I want to avoid my vote being a vote that benefits the greater of two evils.
This makes both the current parties very happy.
Well, it's something we must decide for ourselves ...... which is the greater and lesser. On many matters there's not much of a difference between the dems and pubs.
I know this topic comes up every election and is debated an nauseum. Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil. I think it's more a wasted vote casting a vote for either big party that are essentially one in the same at this point.
But like you said, a vote can only be cast as one sees fit.
Well, I see problems with both the dems and the pubs but ...... see the leftists are far more evil than even the liberal pubs. If I believe a 3rd party candidate has a chance to win and I agree with their political philosophy to a greater degree than a pub, I'd vote for that candidate. However, until we have a viable alternative ...... I'll use my vote to negate the vote of an unproductive, eggstealing leftist who doesn't have a photo ID and cannot prove their citizenship (and may very well be dead) but, is still allowed to vote.
Da Fuq? Those numbers real?
Only in screwed up Florida is Christ a better gov. than Scott. Unreal how dumb people are.
The libertarian candidate here in va polled as high as 13% but on Election Day he got around 6%. Many who want to vote third party won't when it matters. Crist probably likes this poll.
"Christ" would probably be quite a step up.
This poll must really encourage Governor Scott because just a few months ago, Crist held a very big lead. Even the Tampa Tribune wrote last week "the more people look at Charlie Crist, the less they like him".
Who doesn't like orange people? I don't get it.
and this is why it will be a long time before there is one
In general many claim to be Libertarian but do it from a far and are waiting to jump on the bandwagon once it is moving along but how can it get moving if no one wants to give it a push?
I vote for 3rd party because 1) I agree with a majority of their platforms and 2) because I know my vote may not help them win this particular election but establish building blocks for a strong foundation to a truly viable third party.
Every time in any election that the voter percentage for Libertarian moves up is a win
Exactly why I do it. Couldn't agree more!
