Americans Elect: We Got Nobody

Americans Elect, the group vying to be the nation’s first online-only political party, says they’ve got no credible candidate to place on the presidential ballot.

“Over the past two years, Americans Elect has focused on achieving three clear goals: Gaining nationwide ballot access for a third presidential ticket to compete in the 2012 race. Holding the first ever non-partisan secure national online primary at And fielding a credible, balanced, unaffiliated ticket for the 2012 presidential race. Through the efforts of thousands of staffers, volunteers, and leadership, Americans Elect has achieved every stated operational goal. Despite these efforts, as of today, no candidate has reached the national support threshold required to enter the ‘Americans Elect Online Convention’ this June.”

You may recall that Donald Trump once offered to run as the Americans Elect candidate.
