Attention Undecideds - there are now 4,593 candidates for president


https://www.fec.gov/data/candidates/?office=P

Out of those 4,593, there are 961 who are Democrats (you can pick a filter on the left of the list).

Now, c'mon, out of 961 candidates, there has to be one who is a good fit for you.

Surely, MR. FREDERICK CAMIGLA NETTLETON, SENIOR has to light a fire under someone.

Or how about RAY MADRIGAL DE PANCHO VILLA?

Certainly we have a better field of candidates than, say, the Communist Party, which is fielding Lord Hugh Mungus among others.

5. Is anyone from The Rent Is Too Damn High Party running?

Aug 2019
The Rent Is Too Damn High Party is a political party, primarily active in the state of New York, that has nominated candidates for mayor of New York City in 2005 and 2009, and for governor and senator in 2010. Jimmy McMillan was the mayoral candidate both times as well as a candidate for governor.In 2005, he received more than 4,000 votes, and more than 40,000 in 2010. The party has three registered members in the state. McMillan himself is registered as a Republican (previously a Democrat) for the purposes of running in that party's primary elections.

In 2014, the party expanded beyond New York by endorsing a slate of candidates in the District of Columbia's Democratic primary elections. The party's founder, Jimmy McMillan, put the party's trademarks up for sale on December 1, 2015, with intent to retire from politics

6. I was hoping the Monster Raving Loony Party (USA) would make an entrance...

Some of their policies I could get behind:

Relocate Congress to Rikers Island to reduce commute time for Republicans....
Feed the American bald eagle as it is looking a bit thin due to government cutbacks....
All tuition fees for women will be waived as we believe in women's intuition... (But due to gender equality all tuition would be waived for everyone)
Introduce a Department of Information, it will be headed by the CEOs of Google, Facebook, Amazon and Twitter as they know everything already.
