Trump Considering Starting a Third Party

"The Patriot Party."

President Trump has talked in recent days with associates about forming a new political party, according to people familiar with the matter, an effort to exert continued influence after he leaves the White House.

Mr. Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week, the people said. The president said he would want to call the new party the "Patriot Party," the people said...

It's unclear how serious Mr. Trump is about starting a new party, which would require a significant investment of time and resources.

Well, Trump skimped on his own election campaigns so I can answer how much money he'd pour into it: Like, forty bucks, total.

That said, his biggest contribution could just be as a high-profile endorser. Third-parties remain fringe concerns because no one believes they could actually win. If people did think they could win, more people would vote for them.

It's a Catch-22.

But if you have a high-profile endorser/patron, you get over that hump pretty quickly.

Ross Perot was able to turn the Reform Party into a significant player in the 1992 election -- and that was with him flaking in and quitting and then unquitting.

It's time.

The GOP is as aggressive an enemy against us as the Democrats are. It's time to starve that beast. Let them see how far they can get without actual human voters.
