    “taking enough votes away from George H.W. Bush and propelling Bill Clinton into the White House.”

    The data is strongly against that. Bill Pascoe, a Republican consultant, is the only one from our party who has pointed this out. See his article on this in the American Spectator “Ross Perot Didn’t Cost George H.W. Bush the 1992 Election”.

    Thanks for your comment. That point is up for debate for some, but I believe the majority hold my view. But it is hard to argue politics because there are not hard facts most of the time. It seems like Perot drew from Bush in the south, which is usually a Republican stronghold. He may have drawn a few votes from Clinton in the Midwest. But most pundits still think he hurt Bush more than Clinton. Here is a map showing the red-blue breakdown in the 1992 election. You’ll note the red does not cross the entire south, as per usual.

    The GOP will have no choice. If Trump goes third party he will draw off 60% of the party if not more. We have a bunch of Republican traitors running the GOP. We elect them to power to make good on promises and they stab us in the back again and again. My back is a bloody mess and I am sick and tired of our self serving mafia government. It is time for a real change and a move back to Constitutional government reform.

    My 2 cents worth: Trump wins popular vote in republican party. Electorial college forces him to run independent. 3 party split with Hillary winning on democrate lever pullers and black vote. Possible??

    The question is less of his being elected, but making a difference on the American scene… This will happen.
