    Poll: Voters want an independent candidate to take on Clinton, Trump



    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/280329-poll-voters-want-independent-candidate-over-clinton-trump


    Here are the most striking, historic numbers: 58. 55. 65. What are they?

    58% of respondents are dissatisfied with the current group of Republican and Democratic candidates for President.
    55% of respondents favor having an independent presidential ticket in 2016.

    A shocking 91% of voters under the age of 29 favor having an independent candidate on the ballot.

    65% of respondents are at least somewhat, pretty or very willing to support a candidate for President who is not Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

    An independent will never get enough votes to win.

    ^
    The House of Representatives would decide who the President is if no one gets to 270 electoral votes. So whoever would run as an Independent would most likely need to be liked by the House of Rep. in order to be chosen by them.

    One of the two will likely get 270 votes.

    I'd rather have Hillary than Donald but I'm open to a sane progressive candidate. Not Bernie.

    Who Hillary picks for VP will be important to me.
