Vail Daily letter: Consider other candidates

My daughter sent me a picture on Facebook of a bumper sticker that said: NeitherOne 2016.com. My comments:

This is a bi-partisan problem. Bernie Sanders supporters and others on the left who can’t stomach Hillary can consider Jill Stein, the Green candidate. On the other side, take a look at Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate.

Check out the 12th Amendment. If no candidate gets a majority of the electoral votes, the House of Representatives gets to decide, choosing from up to three of the top electoral vote getters. And each state gets one vote. Do you think Jill Stein and/or Gary Johnson could get enough electoral votes to make this happen?

Both Jill and Gary appear to be respectable people. You might not agree with all their views, but at least you wouldn’t be ashamed to see one of them in the White House.

I just hung up on the umpteenth robo call from Donald Trump; who thinks that is an effective way to get support?
