One in Four Voters Are Double-Haters, Rejecting Trump and Biden
The ranks of the double-haters — voters who say they don’t like either major party presidential candidate — are at a historic high and make up one-quarter of the electorate, according to a new analysis from Pew Research Center.

The likelihood of a change two either the Democrat or Republican nominee for President in 2024 is nearly non-existent, but there are a lot of folks in the good old USA that think that neither of them are worthy of the nation's highest office.

Nothing can be done so long as big money controls the politics and candidates of both parties and the will of the people and the welfare of the people are low in the list.

The time for a third party or a fourth or fifth is certainly at hand.

The crassness of politics in the USA today makes the idea of a "parliament" made up of four or five different parties multiple parties would need to work together to create a majority group in control much more palatable.

(Bloomberg) -- The ranks of the double-haters — voters who say they don’t like either major party presidential candidate — are at a historic high and make up one-quarter of the electorate, according to a   new analysis   from Pew Research Center.

That’s nearly twice as many as at this point in 2020.


Double-haters were a key factor in Donald Trump’s upset win in 2016, when they broke for the Republican candidate over Democrat Hillary Clinton. But President Joe Biden won many of those voters over on his way to winning the White House in 2020.

Biden and Trump are taking roughly equal measures of these disillusioned voters in battleground states, with Biden winning 25% to Trump’s 22%, a May Bloomberg News/Morning Consult   poll   shows. 




But the biggest threat to Biden and Trump is that voters turned off by them will simply stay home — or find refuge in an independent candidate like Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is polling at 24% among those voters in the Bloomberg/Morning Consult survey. Other third-party candidates are taking a combined 12%.

Growing political polarization is driving the unpopularity. The Pew analysis found that presidential candidates are only slightly less popular within their own party than they were three decades ago, but that voters of the opposing party are much more negative.

There will be calls of "both side-ism", "he's worse than our guy is", "a third-party vote is a wasted vote", "a third-party vote will ensure the wrong guy is elected"

All maybe true, but that does not address the issue - which is

Id Trump and Biden are the best two options for the American people to choose from for President then "woe is us"

Trump and Biden are incredibly poor choices and I in good conscience can't vote for either one because I feel both are bad for the country.

Some may say that is unrealistic, or irrational, or maybe even unpatriotic.

I say it is past time to stop voting AGAINST someone and time to start voting FOR someone. I seem to remember when people were proud to cast a vote for someone. Seems those days are long gone. How many Trump voters or Biden voters will actually be proud to cast a vote FOR their candidate today? I suspect the number to be low.

We have heard all the same arguments about third parties. People talk about wanting better choices. People talk about how they hate the status quo. People talk but continue to play right into the hands of the Democratic or Republican party, which is how we ended up with the likes of Gaetz, MTG, AOC, and the rest of the Squad, and incredibly horrible Presidential candidates.

Unless you are satisfied with the choices, voting for one of the clowns will accomplish one thing:

An incredibly bad President.

The idea of a coalition government IS getting more appealing since ours is clearly dysfunctional now. How can anyone wish for more of the same and be willing to do nothing to ever change anything?

Yes woe is us.   Biden and Trump are the only individuals who have a shot at the presidency.   That could change, but it is unlikely.   

The Ds had an incumbent and it is extremely difficult to displace an incumbent who seeks reelection.   Party machinery favors the incumbent.   

But the Rs had many perfect opportunities to produce a decent nominee.   They should have detached from Trump on Jan 20, 2021.   But they did not and in return, Trump helped them turn what should have been a strong midterm showing for the GOP into a modest blip.   But the GOP still did not wake up and continues to prop up Trump no matter what he did.   They even had a real primary where voters could have voted for someone other than Trump.   They did not.   The GOP leaders, seeing GOP electorate support for Trump, have instead resorted to alternate realities to defend Trump and transform him into some kind of hero.    And the GOP electorate (and others) are buying this bullshit.

So, yeah, this is a profound problem.   It is cultish.   And it is not clear that Trump supporters will ever recover from this cultish mindset.

U.S. possibility of third-party voting for the presidential election 2024, by party

I will be voting for the only candidate that hopefully will restore some sanity and common sense to our government.

And that is not Biden. Even more important is for the Republicans to take back the Senate, which is likely, and gain a few seats in the House.

You seem to be completely missing the POINT.

The issue isn't whether the candidates are equal.

If you are truly happy with Biden, that puts you in the 21% of Democrats unwilling to look at other candidates.

That has absolutely NOTHING to do with Biden being a good choice,  just perhaps a better choice than Trump. That is hardly inspiring to the 40% actually willing to look at other candidates.

If one votes for a viable candidate who loses they have made a decision and cast a vote.   They participated in making the decision.   Those who did not cast a vote for one of the only two possible winners did not participate in the decision.   They left the decision up to those who did cast a vote for one of the two possible winners.   And you are telling us that you do not understand this basic logic??

If a baseball player hits a home run but his team loses, would you claim that he did not contribute towards the goal of winning?   That this player contributed no more than a team mate who was benched during the game?

The way you coddle Biden- you have no room to talk about what anyone else thinks or feels.

I can't stand Trump. I campaigned for and voted for Gary Johnson in 2016. With two complete asshole candidates like Hillary and Trump Johnson couldn't even muster 10% of the popular vote.

People told me they would be voting for Johnson; but the lesser of two evils took hold of them and they voted for either Hillary or Trump. One of the poll workers from our area said the amount of votes for Johnson was pathetic as compared to what was promised.

I would like to thank the Democrats for removing the fantasy that voting for neither Establishment party candidate is an option. Eight years and counting of their bullshit has proven that Trump is really the lesser of two evils. Along with whomever else the Republicans throw on the down ticket.

I am not voting for Republicans- I am voting against Democrats. 

If you think Biden is the man for the presidency then you are pleasing China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran to no end. They want the US weak, corrupt, impotent, focused on a worthless never ending war in Ukraine, and continuing with the stuck on stupid foreign policy that has the US sending billions to countries that despise us.

I see articles like this and it reminds me of something many don’t seem to want to consider.    

We have the nearly unprecedented opportunity to evaluate each candidate by their record.    Four years of Trump and nearly four years of Biden.    That alone should be enough to make an informed decision.

And if I had to like every candidate to vote for them, I’d never vote again …..

most certainly 25% are at the bottom, and 25% float at the top, with 50% shoved between, just as 50% are above 50% that are below, the actual mean if you know what i,

It is encouraging to see that at least some voters are willing to look at other candidates who may be better qualified.

One day it will be a majority of voters, with any luck at all.

I wish more people would be in the category of double-haters as defined in the article.

But alas, we see what happens when people start talking about anyone outside the Dem or GOP nominees.

That I can agree on.

If none of the above winds- then none of the candidates are allowed to run for that office ever again.
