Next Sunday's Column: "A third-party in 2024?"
This time it could be different
We wanted to alert our readers to next Sunday’s column. Hal takes a fresh look at the plausibility of a third-way or third-party ticket and why the 2024 presidential election represents circumstances we have never seen before in American politics. In relatively recent history, we think of George Wallace (American Independent Party), Ralph Nader (Green Party), Ross Perot (Reform Party), Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party), Ron Paul (Libertarian Party), and Jill Stein (Green Party) as third-party candidates who, at best, simply wound up being spoilers. The circumstances the American electorate will face in 2024, however, will be markedly different than that which the nation has faced in any prior election, and the possibility of a third way, an alternative to the nominees our two traditional parties may nominate, deserves a new look. Hal will discuss why this time it could be different.
