Andrew Yang: Significant Third Party Presidential Candidate Will Enter 2024 Race This Year

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.

    TL/DR, or shorter, translated:

    Yang is running, as leader of his vanity plate third party. Shock me.

  2. Sammy H

    Yang big mistake was running for mayor and expecting Dem establishment help. When it didn’t come he became bitter and left the party but this is all too much too fast. He should wait if he is going to run or else he will become a punchline.

  3. Richard Winger

    Andrew Yang lives in New York, and yet as far as I know, he hasn’t said a word about the 2020 ballot access change in his home state. It tripled the statewide petition for independent candidates and the nominees of unqualified parties, from 15,000 to 45,000. It also made the US House distribution requirement much more difficult; now 500 signatures are needed in half the US House races. But the change did not expand the petitioning period, which is only 6 weeks. It did not fix the deadline, which in 2019 was moved from August to May. It did not fix the problem that out-of-state circulators are banned in New York (the only state with such a ban for candidate petitions). There are 4 parties suing New York, but the lawsuit gets no publicity. Andrew Yang could get some publicity for those lawsuits if he wanted.

    Comrades, we must unite! Yang must be the Libertarian nominee, and bring about a revolution at the ballot box, and begin the end of the established order. Libertarians of the World, Unite!

    Very interesting, William Saturn. I suspected Joe Wendt of trolling here a long time ago. I have also long suspected him of being a government plant.

  6. Traditionalist

    Mr. Yang may be engaging in wishful thinking. However, I do think there could be some room for a split among the Democrats, as they cast about blaming each other for their utterly failed policies and the escalating disasters they are producing. If so, it will make President Trump’s massive, historically epic landslide as he is once again elected to office – the first candidate to legitimately win a third Presidential election in a row in the US since Franklin Roosevelt – all that much more gigantic.
