Third party? Extremely possible

I thought this was a article worth noting, though it mainly addresses the major-party candidates.

Here’s a excerpt-

Party allegiance has hit its lowest tide since the birth of scientific polling. As many as a third of American voters now call themselves “independent.” Although most still tend to vote for one party’s ticket or the other, many are waiting to be wooed by a fresh and new alternative.

    The following was sent to me on MySpace. Since it talks about Ron Paul running as a “Third Party” Candidate I just posted it here.

    Ron Paul Odds Slashed Dramatically: 15 to 1 from 200 to 1
    It was only two weeks ago that 2008 Presidential candidate Ron Paul was listed at Sportsbook.com with odds of 200 to 1. In fact, early in the month he was not even offered on the political betting menu. My how things have changed in the past month.

    Carrie Stroup here with some startling news concerning Ron Paul. Sportsbook.com (see website here) had experienced such a dramatically insurgence of betting action on Mr. Paul over the past two weeks they were forced to slash odds from 200 to 1 to the current 15 to 1 odds.

    “Ron Paul is a serious contender whose grass roots campaign is growing dramatically,” explains Payton O’Brien, Senior Editor of Gambling911.com, one of the world’s leading political betting news sources. “No other single candidate for US President has received the type of interest generated here at Gambling911.com.”

    Case in point, articles on Ron Paul in some cases generated four times the amount of interest than both Hillary Clinton and Rudolph Giuliani articles combined.

    Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés in her piece for The Moderate Voice questions whether Paul will jump to the third party, something the folks at Sportsbook.com are watching closely as well since 15 to 1 odds still offer a tremendous payout for gamblers ($1500 for every $100 bet should he win)

    “Could Ron Paul’s freshest strategy be to keep showing up for all his party’s nominee debates, bringing his message out over and over again… and then, near the midnight hour, maybe suddenly say, You know what guys? I’m booking. I’m going to run Third Party.

    “A lot of people right now, seem to be thinking it might make stark sense to vote third party. All across the blogplanet one can read post after post from writers on the left, right and middle, fed up with two parties who’re coughing a 2 cylinder engine up the mountain of US woes, while loudly proclaiming they’re running a finned Hemi. Many people think they look and act the same. Only different colored socks. Maybe.”

    Representatives from Sportsbook.com agree that the backing of Paul is has been significant enough to shorten odds to what might very well amount to the biggest slashing in online gambling history.

    “Read all the blogs, the Ron Paul news forums, and you’ll see people saying they have either placed bets or considered placing bets on their favorite candidate at those high odds,” a Sportsbook.com representative told Gambling911.com late Wednesday. “We will likely be slashing odds further in the coming weeks and quite possibly days since Ron Paul’s momentum is really building.”

    For online gamblers a win would mean more than just money in one’s own pocket. Ron Paul is the only candidate with 20 to 1 or better odds of becoming the next US President who supports legalized online gambling. A handful of his colleagues, including Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona, attached an measure to curb some forms of online gambling to an unrelated port security act.

    Paul considered the act “underhanded” and a perfect example of what is wrong with today’s political system. Paul was also one of the few who had no other choice but to vote against the port security act due to the slimy tactics used during the waning days of Congressional session last October in getting the measure passed into law.
