I don’t support Donald Trump for President, although I do oppose him less than I oppose Hillary Clinton. I’ve written before that I intend to vote strategically this November. By that I mean that I don’t expect my vote to count. Maryland is so blue that Hillary will probably carry the state unless the election is a 49-state blowout for the Republicans. I’m likely to vote for a third or fourth party candidate, either as a matter of conscience or to try to get a minor party over the line to qualify for federal matching funds in 2020 or, and this is a long shot, to send the election to the House of Representatives.
For now, the possible candidate who appeals most to me is David French. Popehat explains why. Will French run? Can he get on enough state ballots to matter? I don’t know, but it would be nice to have someone to support for a change.
