    IL, there are plenty of Republicans and Trump lovers on City Data. Yes this forum tends to be more Democrat.

    Heck, it might be time for a new Liberal party. I could see the "anyone but Hillary" phenomena repeating itself among some fence riders or potential cross-overs.

    How about a new third party? I'm not happy with the Democrats by a long shot (except for Bernie--who is continually sidelined by the DNC and the media).

    Isn't the Socialist Party still around? Bernie could re-name it the Democratic Socialist Party and not have to do a thing with its existing platform after spending the past couple of election cycles re-branding.

    That's an idea!

    They say they're not a party, but an organization. Looks like a potentially nice replacement for the current Democratic Party though.

    The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. We are a political and activist organization, not a party; through campus and community-based chapters, DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.

    This thread made me look, but this forum is not old enough to find out what people thought of third parties in other elections.

    I voted for Ralph Nader at one point, but I can’t remember when. Probably the 70’s which was a time of Vietnam protests, a sexual and drug revolution and so on.

    I don't think people like third parties because they're considered spoilers--look at Ross Perot. Most of the time the 3rd party candidate is a fringe candidate. It would be really interesting to see if a new party could actually appeal to a wide swath of the population, but like everything else, it's hard to go up against the Machine of the RNC and DNC.

    I try not to think about his self-agrandizing takeover of this country because he's "a businessman and knows how to fix it". God help us if he gets another 4 years.
