This poll is now closed.
I think some part of Yang's appeal is /pol/ trolls at the chans think Yang can be groomed to be a disruptor to the Democrat's chances. (they think they are influential)

But what if he ran as 3rd party and hurt Trump more instead?

There’s legitimately no good reason for anyone to think Yang is a “disruptor” any more than Sanders and Warren are. What a stupid take.

Maybe if Yang was competing in the Republican Primary.

Something like taking 1% from the Dem. And taking 2% from Trump?

Still a net benefit.

Yang Gang attempted disruptor.

A failure, really.

But maybe he has a use.

Yang is far more likely to suck up Independents who dislike Trump and might otherwise vote Dem.

No Republicans are voting for him over Trump.

1. Perot was far more in line with the GOP than Yang is on various issues.

2. The Wikipedia article literally says he drew from both parties equally so he had no impact anyway.

The only type of third party candidate who could hurt Trump, would be someone who could steal away the alt-right.

If Richard Spencer ran as the nominee of the American Nazi party, with a campaign slogan that just straight up said:

Make America White Again:
no seriously we’re going to kill all the black and brown... oh and the Jews


He would steal a huge chuck of Trumps base.

Yang as 3rd Party would steal young and far left liberals, he would dramatically hurt the democrats more than Trump.
