I have voted for a 3rd party out of protest of not liking the 2 candidates more then actually liking the person and all his policies I voted for. If I didn't vote for that 3rd party person I would have voted for a completely different 3rd party who i might agree with on one issue or not voted at all
3rd party votes to me are basically none of the above but I will throw a little support to the cause of what 3rd party candidate X says about issue X.
