    Many people mistrust Clinton and Trump. Is there any possibility of an alternative? If so, how?

    Do you think there is any chance of electing someone besides Hilary Clinton or Donald Trump for president? If so, how might that happen?

    Yes there is. We all need to vote for VERMIN SUPREME, fashion icon. Not only is he a snappy dresser but he has some great ideas about ponies, zombie preparedness, and mandatory tooth brushing.

    No.

    1) Hillary has to win to keep her (and her husband) from going to prison so no matter what comes out, she will kill for the presidency, she the media and the administration will fight it, lie about it, cover it up, delay it until after she is elected when of course anything suspicious, evidence, proof of wrongdoing, investigations or possible indictments against her will disappear. Present investigations will only end if a case can be presented that she, like in the last FBI investigation, can be unindictable and all others can easily be strung out for months by the powers that be until she is elected.

    2) No third party has a chance, historically true in modern times.

    3) On the other hand, Hillary's removal from the race, only likely if she is found dead because of number (1) above, could possibly give us an alternative (like Uncle Joe (bite me) Biden). Good luck with that scenario.

    Well now Jason...This calls for heavy use of our imagination, don't you think?   I'm a lifelong firm believer that anything is "POSSIBLE."   (Probable or practical, not so much.)
    It's certainly a wonderful, comforting thought, I must say but the hard core facts of reality is that Politics is in no way wonderful nor comfortable.  Snap out of your day-dreaming, for your sake.

    On the other hand, there's no law against fantasizing~~not yet anyway.
    Close your eyes and imagine the very first nasty, outrageous debate between the Donald & Hil-liar-y, which of course will take place in the Colosseum.  Within about the first 2 questions, the anger, vitriol & spite will rise to astronomical levels.  Trump will viciously attack Hillary by leaping at her and strangling her with his bare hands, at which point 10 hungry lions will be released and Trump will be their lunch. 
    Oops!  Candidates all gone.  The new candidates will be chosen by the spectators who hold arm-wrestling competition among the biggest, baddest illiterates in the crowd.   Now, that's much more like  the American way, wouldn't you agree?  I bet they'd fix all our problems!

    The simple answer is NO.
    The old saying,"You can't teach an Old Dog, New Tricks" can be applied to loyal party voters.
    The loyal party voter is pretty much born generation after generation, and they still exist today. They are usually born into their party preference along with their religion. Very few change as they grow up.

    Voting Row A or B is not intelligent but it is what party voters have always done, and they still do it today.

    To get a shift to outside the party is impossible as long as the Pavlov party member doesn't know they should change. As far as getting new candidates from the party today is also impossible. They had their best shot when the campaign opened.

    I would have to also contest your phrasing of the question. Most people are political sheep, saying they mistrust is really an imprint from the media. They have been trained and prepped by the media, as opposed to having an independent thought on the subject.

    It might be different, if NEWS was just the reporting of events, but today NEWS comes with opinions, and it is more editorial than it is news.

    The former would substitute intelligence, while the latter is more mind control.

    Like Siamese Fighting Fish loyal party members are taught to hate the other party. There is no rhyme or reason to it, but it is expected to be the case. Of course, both parties are diametrically opposed in their goals.

    Birds of a feather stick together, but they called be called dumb birds.
    So, NO
