    You find it hard to believe...just because?

    Because they are ideologically disparate. There is admittedly a small cross over appeal on a couple of issues but I don't believe it is preventing Johnson from attaining the requisite 15%, despite what you or Politico write.

    They are actually getting exposure.

    Really? Major network, prime time or Sunday talk show? Bernie was regularly getting both. Maybe Johnson has got some cable news coverage. I don't think Stein has gotten anything.

    And I'm not talking about votes. I'm talking polling percentage.

    What are they polling if not the likelihood of a vote?

    You almost behaved like an adult there. Keep trying...you might make it someday.

    What did Politico write? Something similar to what I said? Maybe you should give it consideration, then.

    You don't pay attention. Stein just had a town hall in prime time on CNN. Johnson and Weld have had more than one. They have both been on the Sunday shows. Both parties have been included in poll results for quite some time now.

    It's is pretty simple. There are a lot of people who want to vote but can't stand either Trump or Hillary. If they were given only one alternative in a poll as opposed to two....Johnson would have a bette shot at getting on the debate stage.

    Stop being argumentative for the sake of being argumentative. This isn't rocket science.

    You're not even one to talk; not by a long shot.

    I did and I disagree. I will now stop being argumentative. I took exception to your assertion that your opinion was fact.

    You don't pay attention.

    To cable news. That is correct.

    Problem with communicating through massage is that you can only talk to one person at a time.

    Don't think we're angry with ANY one being on the ballot.. The more the merrier. The stuff Stein is selling is hard to pitch, but the LParty has allied with them on ballot access challenges.

    You're almost right about the debate qualification. Instead of making ALL 50 states -- it should be any party that has ENOUGH states to make the 270 e-vote bar..

    Clearly the exhausting process of getting ON the ballots and defeating the court challenges is the unfair part. Access to debates controlled by PARTISAN means is also clearly unfair.

    You either make the 15% or you don't. We will work to change the Commission. To break up the partisan collusion and power hold on the process. That's what we do. We don't whine.

    LParty ticket is getting their FIFTH free hour of media this Friday. From Fox Business this time. 9PM EST.

    This is good. Everyone is scared. Even the media. The time to stop this partisan brawl for power is now.
