2016 Independent Presidential Candidates  
       











Independent and third-party candidates have always held a larger than life image, chiefly due to the larger than life personalities of the three most successful presidential candidates outside of the big two - Teddy Roosevelt, Ross Perot and Ralph Nader.

The hegemony of the big two was only ever really threatened once, in 1912, when Teddy Roosevelt finished a distance second behind eventual winner, former President Woodrow Wilson.

Independents and third parties candidates are consistently at a disadvantage compared to their Republican and Democratic peers - from a financial, organizational and captive voter base perspective.

However, it bears reminding that the country's first president, George Washington, ran as an independent!
