    The one thing that is crystal clear is that both majors are going to do the political equivalent of carpet bombing with very little concern for collateral damage. One huge surprise is that, based on RCP polling, that it appears that Johnson support was 60% Democratic that went back to Hillary during the conventions.

    When the negative ads hit high gear there will be major defections from both majors down ballot candidates in swing states.

    The other key factor is the IL budget battle. If interest rates go up prior to the election whether through a Fed hike or hot money going elsewhere for example to the UK as Commonwealth free trade deals start stacking up in anticipation of Brexit then the probability of IL chapter 3 goes way up.

    The question is whether there will be enough time for a bandwagon effect to form?

    Ideally, Having Johnson in the debate and REFUSING to go negative, while the dangerous lunatics tear at other, would be even better. Might lock out all the "issue" debate. Except for GJ to use HIS time to discuss issues.

    And the LP is running 30 or 40 Congress races DOWN ballot. With folks fearful of EITHER one of the lunatics getting elected, and the increased coverage of the LP -- we're gonna do "all right" down ballot.

    Hope there's a LP candidate running against Sgt Shultz down in Fla. Might kick in some money to that one.

    Sorry Charlie, DWS has a primary to win and she is likely to lose to the Sanders supporter she has to beat.

    Sorry that may not even be a material misstatement give all of the bribes currently alledged. Like FLCATN thinking the LP could win in the DWS district. Even Sanders would have trouble winning there because he's too right wing
