At the moment, I am hoping that Bernie Sanders runs for President in 2016 as an independent. Do you think an independent candidate could have an impact on the 2016 election?

He couldn't win, but he could help shape the debate and possibly move Hillary a bit to the left. Same goes for Elizabeth Warren. I really hope one of them does just that.

They'd have an impact by taking votes away from another candidate

Sadly, there's still too much blind devotion to parties for people to rise up and elect someone outside of a party. Further, the media bias against independent candidates is a real barrier. My opinion is based on 0 research and all gut. Lol.

If Sanders ran in the general, it's more than feasible that he'd be able to peel a couple million ballots off Clinton's total, effectively handing the race to the G.O.P.

Exactly. I bet that race would've been a he'll of a lot closer if Perot didn't loom so large.

I would love to see Bernie Sanders run for president. I would like it if he ran as a Democrat and I would like it even more if he ran as an Independent. However, I don't hold this hope because I want Sanders to win, but rather because Sanders would

drive Clinton away from the third way and towards the far left if he runs in the primary. If Sanders runs as an independent, then he may siphon off people who would vote for Clinton.
