A third party candidate is one that is not from one of the two major parties but is not an independent. The US has evolved a two-party system especially in the election of the president. However, on occasion, a third-party will arise and run a candidate. These parties are sometimes limited to just a… few states and are merely a protest, but once in awhile a third party develops a national following, gets on the ballot in all states , qualifies for federal funding and can have a definite effect on the outcome of the election even though they may not carry any states or have a real chance to win. Usually the third party is devoted to some one issue such as segregation or NAFDA that the main parties agree on or choose not to take a stand on. (MORE)

They sometimes gain enough votes to cause a major party to lose. (Reasoning That Might help You : There are usually only two majorparties that have the most power in U.S. politics, even thoughthose parties have changed over time. Third party candidates,however, are still able to influence elections.… A third party cangain votes from people who would have otherwise voted for one ofthe major parties, and enough of these votes can cause that majorparty to lose. One of the most famous times this occurred was inthe 1912 presidential election, when Theodore Roosevelt's BullMoose Party gained voters who would have supported the RepublicanWilliam Taft. The Republican vote was split between Roosevelt andTaft, so the Democrat Woodrow Wilson won the election. ) (MORE)

There have been independent (not of the main two parties) candidates. Examples include George Wallace, (American Independent party) Ross Perot- a more recent Third-Party man, and the somewhat misunderstood John Anderson. Newspaper cartoons lampooned Mr. Anderson as the (Donkelephant) a freakish cros…s between the two Party animals- and generally held him up to ridicule. On the other hand, Theodore Roosevelt unsuccessfully ran on the Bull Moose party ticket for a third term- while he did not win, T.R. cannot be called a (closet) or back-door Charlie type such as Mr. Wallace or the (Donkelephant) less-successful, maybe experimental candidates would include Ralph Nader. if the Businessman Donald Trump did run for President, he would probably be a (Third Man) type.

Most often a primary is used to directly decide a candidate at the state and local level. To decide a party's candidate for President, states may use a variety of means -- chiefly primaries and caucuses -- to choose delegates to a national convention. These delegates, often pledged to a partic…ular candidate, will choose the party's national candidate. (A state party may also hold its own convention of local delegates to choose the party's delegates to the national convention.) Study island answer: Polls (MORE)

The effect varies with the details of the situation. The minor party can be a splinter group off of a major party , in which case its candidate will take votes from that major party and perhaps tilt the election to the other party. This is what happened in 1912 when Theodore Roosevelt who had been a… Republican ran on his own ticket. It is also possible that the minor party will take votes more or less equally from both major parties and serve as a voice of protest which may be picked up by a major party in the next election, but have no direct effect on that election. Another possibility is that the minor party has a strong regional following and actually wins enough electoral votes to prevent either major party candidate for getting a majority and therefore the election is decided by the House of Representatives with some slight chance that the minor party candidate would win. If the House elects a president, each state gets one vote, so the 26 smallest states could in theory pick the president. (MORE)
It is a protest vote unless you think the third party has a chance of winning- a vote made to send a message to anyone who reads the vote tallies. If a minor party with a definite issue in mind gets a considerable number of votes, there is a chance that a major party will take up the issue in the ne…xt election. A protest vote could also be made with the intent of taking the votes away from the party that would be expected to get them. This would be the case if disgruntled party members formed a new third party because they felt their views were ignored by the old line party. Besides getting revenge for their slight, they could hope to get more attention from the major party in the next election (MORE)

The idea is to make oneself the "better choice" to lead the country. A lot of what influences voters are their expectations fo…r the office.

However the party likes. Political parties are an emergent development; they're neither required nor forbidden by the Constitution, so there are no rules forcing them to choose their candidates in any particular way.Currently, both major parties (and at least most of the minor ones) choose them by …popular vote ... more or less. In most states, several months before the presidential election there's a primary election in which voters identifying with a particular party are allowed to vote on candidates from their party to choose who will represent the party in the general election. (In some states, such as Iowa, this is done by caucus rather than by a vote in the usual sense.) The state's party leadership then sends delegates to the party's national convention, where they cast their votes for the winner from their state, much as is done in the general election with the electoral college.The "more or less" comes from the fact that both the Republican and Democratic national conventions also have "superdelegates" ... basically party leaders (and, in the Democrats' case, also some elected officials) who also get to vote and who are generally not obligated to vote in accordance with the results of the popular vote. If that sounds a bit like "the people are too dumb to know what they want; they need party leadership to tell them what they really want" ... well, that sums up political parties pretty well. However, they're not legally obligated to listen to the people at all, and historically they didn't, so I suppose this is still a step forward. (MORE)
