Remember Chris Daggett? Yeah, me neither. I don't even know if I spelled the name right. What I can say is that this race will come down to turn out just like any other, Orman can have his single digits result and no one will care.

That was New Jersey though. We don't have very high rates of third party support. Third parties got about 6% of the vote in Kansas in 2016, while in New Jersey it was barely 2%. Orman can make an impact.

Third parties got 2% in Kansas in 2012. That sort of thing varies based on candidates and context.

Sure but that also means that third parties did even worse in New Jersey in 2012. My point is that Chris Daggett isn't equivalent to Greg Orman who is much more well established in a state that is likely to have a fair amount of defections from both major parties.
