No. Republicans will ALWAYS come home. Always.

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


Right but my post wasn't a commentary about Yang drawing votes, it was solely in regards to the idea that Republicans with, "ALWAYS come home."

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


Honestly I'm not that convinced by their methodology. I'm not saying he was a spoiler, I've saying he changed the margins of victory.

edit2 and btw just for the record, I do think Yang running independent would hurt the Dems.

Yang running as an independent would help Trump immensely.

Yang's base is economically left socially liberal (eg not progressive) men. He's basically Eric Weinstein.

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.

Would you vote Yang over Trump and Biden?

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.

So basically you believe Sanders and Warren are “disruptors” too then?

Easily. I’d vote Yang over any candidate who ran in the last 2 elections.

Yang and bernie peels off 10 percent of trump voters. Not enough to do dmg to the Republicans but good enough to win against trump in a landslide.

Freedom and democracy are dog whistles? Alt right ones at that?
