No my entire premise is saying many people vote a 3rd party candidate as a protest because they don't like the 2 party system and sometimes it's just a case they feel so strongly about 1 issue that they will back a candidate on the basis of that.

As I said above chances are people who voted Sarvis would have voted a different 3rd party guy or not voted all if he wasn't one the ballot, so getting 73% of his vote would be much harder then it seems when you figure a few of them would also jump over to the Demcorat side.
