The crypto venture capitalist and independent presidential candidate Brock Pierce says he doesn’t think he will win the 2020 election but has revealed how he plans to end up in the White House anyway..
The presidential candidate told Cointelegraph that One of his main campaign strategies was to ensure that neither the Republican nor the Democratic parties win a majority in 2020Bet on the electoral college:
“If a third party like me only won one state, it would be possible that no one would win the elections. If a third party wins like the three of us, it’s likely that no one will win the election. So I’m not trying to win the election. I’m trying to win three states so that nobody wins the elections. “
Possible, not likely
According to US law A presidential candidate must win at least 270 votes out of 538 to be elected, no majority of the referendum. Less populous states like Wyoming have three votes, while larger states like California have 55 votes.
A candidate can carry an entire state and its electoral votes by winning a majority of the votes in that state. This system explains how Donald Trump was able to “win” the 2016 election with 304 votes, even though he received a total of around 3 million fewer votes than the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
However, if none of the major party candidates got a majority of the electoral votes, the state delegations in the House of Representatives would vote for the three presidential candidates with the most electoral votes, that is, if the strategy is effective, Pierce, Trump and Biden.
“You don’t have to win to be president”Said Pierce. “I developed a strategy to finish at the White House in January.”
Pierce is a winner either way
Pierce is likely to be a winner no matter what.. If you are unlikely to achieve your heroic goal of becoming president, Your campaign will generate significant media exposure and help highlight cryptocurrencies as an election issue.
Pierce first announced his offer for the US presidency in a July 5 tweet.to Kanye West. His campaign page states that he is a pioneer in digital currency and raised over $ 5 billion for the companies he founded.
Cointelegraph will be releasing the full video of the Pierce interview shortly.
