The two historically unpopular likely major party nominees have some frustrated voters daydreaming about a third party.
But as in most election years, the prospects for such a candidate are mostly a fantasy when it comes to winning the White House outright. A mix of structural challenges such as ballot access in states and rigorous requirements to enter the general election debates, the Electoral College, and the lack of a clear ideological opening make this talk little more than a protest.
Still, that doesn’t mean a third-party candidate can’t play a role as a spoiler, swiping votes that might otherwise go to Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
Here’s a look at five potential third-party scenarios and how they might affect the November election.
Hillary Clinton's former chief of staff refused to answer questions about the Democratic front-runner's personal email server because she also acts as Clinton's personal attorney, a deposition transcript made public Tuesday revealed. Cheryl Mills, a longtime Clinton aide, told lawyers from the conservative group Judicial Watch that she learned the details of Clinton's private email use after the former secretary of state had stepped down.
At a news conference in Trump Tower on Tuesday morning, the presumptive Republican nominee Donald J. Trump shared his thoughts about the political press and Harambe, the gorilla that Cincinnati Zoo officials shot and killed after a small child wandered into his enclosure. Mr. Trump had nicer things to say about the gorilla.
All along Hillary Clinton has pled that when it comes to her violation of Federal regulations, she was at worst naive, hardly malicious and - as of recently - merely doing what each of her state department predecessors has done; and she has been very careful to make it clear that she never purposefully and intentionally "stripped" confidential data in order to send it through her unsecured server as such an act would imply not only a breach of email retention policy, but a willful abuse of confidential documents.

The pairs depraved abuse included: * Imprisoning one boy in a cage made from a fire guard, using cable ties to bind his hands behind his back; * Tying another boy naked to a chair in a dark room with nine snakes and several rats, forcing him to eat his own vomit and telling him a boa constrictor ate naughty little boys; * Forcing the youngsters to
