you all best be prepared for a late Summer, 2020 3rd party candidate.

That is all I will say.

primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

and Republicans - with him? Or most of them? Even a small fraction would be enough to hurt the election outcome and he knows it.

the potential third party candidate would be angry and bruised, tearing clothes off and mumbling incoherently. The diehard supporters will still be around but there won't be many. Plus, we'll have all the other Democratic candidates campaigning for the front runner which will make said third party candidate appear full of sour grapes.

I doubt any potential third party candidate wants to be remembered that way in history.

spoiler campaign after losing the primary,... Well, deja vu all over again. We do need to realize and be prepared to fight a two-front war to keep Trump and the Republicans from remaining in power.

Look at Paragraph 43 of the Mueller indictment of the Russians...

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/4380480-Mueller-Russia-Indictment.html

43. By 2016, Defendants and their co-conspirators used their fictitious online personas to interfere with the 2016 US. presidential election. They engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump.


Look who the Russians helped.
