Just A Thought About U.S. Politics

Republicans and Democrats usually get an even split at 47% of the vote each, with independents and undecided voters deciding the election in three to five "swing states".

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are now widely expected to be those parties' nominees.

Both have a strong anti-them movement going in each party, with a lot of Bernie Sanders supporters saying they wouldn't endorse Clinton and the Republican establishment being widely against Trump. Each party could lose approximately a third of its voters.

Wouldn't this be the perfect situation for a Michael Bloomberg to come in as a right-wing independent to steal votes from both of them and become the first non-affiliated President?

I bet he would make it an interesting race... and - I hate saying it - perhaps a cleaner one, too.
