Poll: 43% Say 3rd-Party Vote ‘Waste’

More than 40 percent of people taking part in a poll say they won’t vote for someone besides Pres. Barack Obama or Mitt Romney because they feel like it would be a waste of their vote. The non-scientific poll was conducted Oct. 26-28, with more than 3,200 people responding on KING 5's home page. Forty-five percent said they would not vote for a third party candidate because they prefer either Obama or Romney, but 43 percent said they felt voting for a candidate besides those two would be a “waste of my vote”/Travis Pittman, KING. More here.

Question: Who was the last third-party candidate that you voted for?
