It is a curious fact that, even among the opponents of democracy, the vote is considered important. That is why there is so much effort to persuade people not to do it, to persuade people to vote for candidates who can't possibly win, to prop up splitter candidates, to make it difficult to get permission to vote, to revoke people's permission to vote, to lose people's permission to vote, to falsify the vote, to not count the vote, to claim the vote isn't valid. Your vote counts, and your political opponents know it. That's why they don't want you to do it!

Which is why you cannot trust anyone promoting the two alternative candidates. Voting for them helps Trump.

Yeah. Not a good time to risk a protest vote, the popular vote counts to the post-election outcome, even if your state's Electoral College vote is all but assured. And vote downticket, because control of the Senate is very much in doubt and it will make a huge difference.
