I was in the parking lot of a grocery store on vacation in a northeastern state, and there was a guy with a "No Labels" t-shirt and a clipboard. I assume it was a voter registration effort or something, but I sure hope he was getting paid whatever his time was worth, because I can't imagine "grassroots" support for this nonsense.

independents or Democrats.

There is some polling data showing that a ticket with Manchin and Huntsman takes about 7 points away from Trump, and only a couple from Biden. But then, that's an obscure poll with a low record of accuracy.

If the Trump campaign can run false front, third party candidacies, why can't Democrats do the same?
