Andrew Yang predicts a major third party candidate will enter the 2024 presidential race within the next 12 months, and possibly much sooner than that.
On the latest episode of “Forward with Andrew Yang” he tells co-host Zach Graumann that he expects a serious third party challenger to emerge this year. Look for it at around the 14:30 minute in the video below.
“There will be a [significant] third party candidate who declares, in all likelihood before the mid-terms, but definitely before year end,” says Yang. “Do I also have a little bit of whispering in the wind coming my way on this? Yeah.”
Yang suggests that after the mid-term elections in November of 2022 all of the nation’s focus will shift to a possible re-match between President Biden and (potentially) former President Trump. In that scenario, he says the smart move would be to declare sometime by mid-2022 and spend time on the road meeting voters and doing interviews to build a base of support.
