A few third party candidates usually make a run for the Oval Office every time a presidential election is held, but they are never taken seriously and never gain any real traction.

However, it is widely believed that a large majority of Americans are actually “in the middle” on political issues, and talks of potential Independent candidates are growing louder.

Former Starbucks Chairman/CEO Howard Schultz has been weighing a possible 2020 run as an Independent, and quietly building a political team.

“The failed political class of Washington, D.C., has broken America’s political system. And out of that are rising political extremes on both sides. President Trump is one extreme and on the other side is a vitriolic undermining of the American free enterprise system,” Schultz tweeted on Saturday.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban also indicated in an interview Monday night that he has not ruled out running for president, and would run as an Independent if he chooses to jump into the race.

    As an independent you have to get there & meet the people…be able to debate with the rest of the candidates no matter which party…we’ve had 2 party politcs for as long as I can remember…please run DML for 2020

      I don’t think this would be a good idea unless you want the republican party to loose in 2020. I think it would end up being split up between Trump and Lynch.

    I honestly dont know. I personally would vote independent if i liked the candidate.

    Mark Cuban would not spilt the Republican vote. He is a straight up Democrat.
