Third parties syphon off votes that can be the margin for victories in tight races…..
A moderate group like ‘No Label’s’ if running a canidate could be the edge to cause a Biden loss next November if the race for President was tight……..
Political organization No Labels committed to end its third-party push if polling shows President Biden “way” ahead of former President Trump next spring.
No Labels, a bipartisan group, has been pursuing an effort to launch a “unity ticket” in the 2024 presidential election that would include a Republican and a Democrat “if the two parties select unreasonably divisive presidential nominees.” Trump and Biden are currently leading the polls among candidates in their respective parties. Democrats are wary of third-party recruitment pushes amid concerns that they could take votes away from Biden in next year’s election.
Ben Chavis, the Democratic co-chair of No Labels, told NBC NewsThursday that the group “is not and will not be a spoiler in favor of Donald Trump in 2024.” He also said the group would be prepared to “stand down” by the spring of next year, saying it will make a decision after Super Tuesday and before its convention in April.
“If we find that the polls are changed and Joe Biden is way, way out ahead, and the person who the Republicans may choose — and if they continue to choose Donald Trump, even though he’s been indicted — then No Labels will stand down,” Chavis told the outlet.
No Labels confirmed to The Hill that it will end its third-party push if Biden is ahead in the polls next spring….
