  • The next president may not yet be in the race

    According to a recent Gallup Poll (Nov. 26-29), many Americans are still undecided about who they will vote for in the coming election.

    Third party option making the news

    Two good articles were published today that spoke of the potential third-party run that may be coming in 2024:

    Honorable Thomas Foley's 2024 Freedom Award

    Last night, Thomas S. Foley, former Speaker of the House, was presented with the 2024 Freedom Award "in grateful recognition of his leadership in the United States Congress and for all he has accomplished domestically and internationally to advance greater public understanding and appreciation of the United States Congress and the United States Capitol."

    Rothstein's "What If?" Game at U.S. Politics Today

    "What if the major party nominations get settled early, but the general election ballot includes multiple additional serious contenders? And what if the fall debate platforms seem as crowded as the 2024 primary contests?"

    Joe Rothstein, in his article "What If The General Election Stage Is As Crowded With Candidates As The Primaries Have Been?", poses some questions about the potentially "most riveting and least predictable" election that we've ever encountered.
