2. He then would not have had the option to run as an independent,
since he would have had to gather several thousand signatures in just one day.

Having the independent run out in the public allowed them to get a more accurate measure of where they are with the voters. Had it not been so transparent whatever votes he got in the primary would have been much softer support. The 48% who voted for him did so knowing that he was going to run in the general election.
