12. If the Democratic Party nominates
a conservative Pro-War candidate (Hillary), a strong 3rd Party Populist run is inevitable. Hillary has such HIGH negatives inside the Democratic Party that a 3rd Party will slice off a good percentage of Liberal votes from the Democrats guaranteeing a Republican Win.
This WILL happen if Hillary is the nominee.

None of the glowing Media Polls about Hillary's lead are valid.
None of these polls consider the impact of a Populist 3rd Party.
