Interesting poll and article. Thank you.

It will be curious to see how the election between Trump, Harris and Jorgensen, turns out.

A vote for Jorgensen is a vote for Biden then. 

Fortunately, far more Dems are deserting Biden for Trump.

No. A vote is a vote.

If one casts a vote for Jorgensen then the count looks like this:

Biden 0
Trump 0
Jorgensen 1

Especially when federal funding for future elections is involved. Has always been interesting how supporters of either major party seems to tally a vote for a third party, as support for the other major party.

There is a center of the universe. Neither major party is it.

Best of luck.

Edit: Just curious, do you have a source to your claim that more democratic are abandoning Biden for Trump, or is that conjecture? Not being rude. Honestly curious.

FL 211k early votes now separate

Reps closed gap by 36k already today.

At this pace, by Tues morn, all will be about equal.  Of course, depends upon who the Indies come out for.

Personally... I voted Trump last time. With his attacks on the 2nd Amendment though, I'm definitely voting for Jorgensen this time. Ive seen several who have this attitude - "take the guns first....due process 2nd."
Two years of House and Senate control, zero gun laws repealed. Reauthorized Patriot Act....pretends to be pro 2nd amendment.

Jorgensen wont win...but she's only aiming for 5% to get federal funding.

Still, Trump didn't do himself any favors with people that used to support him.

When the Constitution was drafted and ratified, none of the men involved ever imagined that life in, say, Massachusetts and South Carolina would become the same. Still less did they conceive that the Constitution gave the federal government authority to make them the same....

This principle mistake of this country is in thinking that the Constitution ever had any authority.

Lysander Spooner makes an excellent argument as to the Constitution having no authority in his essay "No Treason."

This country is going to the way of balkanization and there is no stopping it.

"Security forces..."

Several more powerful grasps have been broken in countries that enjoyed absolute gun control. The security forces....aren't.

The Bear Went Over the Mountain....and The Other Side of the Mountain... Great books.
