Who are on enough ballots in enough states to win? Doubtful.

Both the Libertarian and Green parties are on enough ballots to mathematically win the election.  That is why there is currently a lawsuit against the Commission on Presidential Debates for their nominees to be included.

In fact, this year, the Libertarian party will be on the ballot in all 50 states.

Yeah, but when they asked Bill what he'd be, he said "first gentleman".  Wonder if they still have to play the little song for him? ;-)

When it's used as a personal title of nobility (prefix), yeah.
 
The title of the position is First Lady, not Lady Michelle or Lady Laura ... etc.

Lord and lady mean housemaster and housemistress (lit. bread-keeper and bread-kneader) respectively so, strictly speaking, Exzaclee is correct.

Whether or not Bill could accurately be described as a "housemaster" I'll leave to others to argue. Evil

Which is why it is so common to address an audience with, "Good evening, ladies and lords..."  :)

"Lords, ladies, and gentlemen" was once quite common.

One can be a gentleman without being a lord in any sense, and the courtesy is traditionally extended to all women (well, all gentlewomen).

Hillary will be the Dem candidate.
Trump will be the Rep candidate.
Both parties, have equally failed the people of the USA.
Both parties should be banned, or disbanded.
They no longer represent "the people's" best interest.

Trump will win.
No, I did not vote for Trump in the primary.
But he will win.
The people are tired of the "Establishment" in DC, and are sending a clear signal.
Even I can recognize that.

I think not.

This is a classic case of a small culture being sure everyone else agrees with them.  The extremists supporting Trump are just that, extremists.  They carry undue weight in primaries because nobody cares about primaries.  There is no way they represent "the people."

I know real people who would like to vote for Trump so that the establishment Republicans will *lose their jobs*. In their mind, Trump will lose and his negative coat tails would bring more down with him. So, as with game theory, you don't always vote for the person you want to win but with your ultimate objective: to have politicians lose their jobs. "You're fired."

When I first saw this poll I thought it would be interesting to add two more questions:
 
My choice is the candidate I support.
My choice is not the candidate I support.

Lots of times the choice is between the "lesser of two weevils".

Nobody is a perfect candidate for everybody.  What is it Lincoln said?  "You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time".

Between just those two options you can get away with a lot.   :/
