The No Labels Third-Party Bid: A Plan that Will Re-elect Trump - Third Way

Rather than producing a third-party ticket that would defy the overwhelming odds and win, No Labels is on track to field a spoiler who would re-elect Trump or a Trump-like Republican.

Given the overwhelming odds against a third-party candidate and the mountain of evidence about who their ticket would hurt, the conclusion is inescapable: No Labels is committed to fielding a candidate that will, intentionally or not, provide a crucial boost to Republicans – and a major obstacle to Biden. As a result, they’ll make it far more likely—if not certain—that Donald Trump returns to the White House.

When in doubt about politics, it's always a good idea to 'Follow the Money'. Who is funding a project? What do they hope to get in return? Who are the people involved? What have they done in the past? Follow the money and people with this network map.

No Labels club’s conservative funding undermines purported bipartisan efforts

No Labels club’s conservative funding undermines purported bipartisan efforts

According to The Intercept, the group has taken in a significant amount of money from conservative-leaning groups including:
- Louis Bacon — founder of Moore Capital Management hedge fund — who gave $1.1 million to the GOP in 2016 and $1 million to No Labels-affiliated Super PACS
- James Murdoch (the son of Rupert Murdoch — owner of News Corporation, which includes The Wall Street Journal and Fox News) who gave $500,000
- Nelson Peltz who gave $900,000 to affiliated PACs and candidates.
- Christy Ruth Walton, a Walmart heiress
- Josh Bekenstein, CEO of Bain Capital
- John Catsimatidis, CEO of Gristedes Foods
- Carl Ferenbach, co-founder of Berkshire Partners LLC.

GOP lite

These are the people behind No Labels. Their interests are only in making more money for their companies and stockholders. They have no interest in bipartisanship; they want to push the Democratic Party to the right so that it becomes, in essence, a GOP-lite. - The Spectator

Who is Targeted Victory?

Mike Murray - Been hired to provide grassroots fundraising and message strategy services by numerous U.S. Presidential candidates including: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Herman Cain, Mitt Romney
Zac Moffat - Served as Digital Director for Mitt Romney for President - Targeted Victory

Bottom Line

Their candidate cannot win the presidency—and, as Paul Begala noted, such a candidate “will succeed in electing Trump.”

No Labels is arguing this is a unique historical moment that gives their “unity ticket” a real shot at winning the White House. But that is an illusion. The data and historical evidence are clear: no third-party candidate would come close to winning. - Third Way

History of Failure: Voters don’t back third parties. Since 1900, third-party candidates didn’t win enough electoral votes in sum to win one election.
The Polling Mirage: Third-party candidates poll well at first before plummeting; Gary Johnson hit 10% in 2016, Ross Perot 36% in 1992, John Anderson 26% in 1980. But by Election Day they had cratered and failed to win a single electoral vote.
Base Illusion: No Labels says a plurality of Americans identify as Independents. It’s actually 9% when partisan leaners are taken into account. That is not a base that can win.
Fantasy Map: No Labels has laid out their purported path to Electoral College victory in the map below. Among other imaginings, they claim their candidate could win solid blue states like Connecticut, Washington, and Minnesota. They argue an incumbent president would win only six states (plus DC). In their biggest stretch, No Labels claims they could beat Biden in his home state of Delaware.

TakeAway: Don't waste your vote on a third party candidate and get Trump re-elected.
