Just because Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton will be the two main presidential election 2016 nominees does not mean one of them has to win.
Quirks in U.S. election laws and a disgruntled electorate have opened the door for Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson.

The Trump - Clinton fundraising gap could end up hurting Trump in the long term.
Unless Trump seriously steps up his fundraising game, he won't have enough money to fund his general election campaign.

These political "advocacy" groups are notorious for exploiting campaign finance loopholes.
Dark money groups have a powerful role in influencing the votes of Americans during elections.
And the 2016 election could be one of the biggest years for dark money spending ever, according to the head of the dark money research team at the Center for Responsive Politics.
Some GOP establishment figures hate that Donald Trump is their nominee. Many are vocally opposing his candidacy, while others are quietly dissenting...
Wealthy donors for election 2016 have been very active promoting their candidates or causes.
So far in this election cycle, over $300 million has been spent by super PACs, political welfare organizations, and the candidates' campaigns.
Super PACs and dark money organizations have incredible sway over American election cycles. But it wasn't always that way.
Dark money nonprofits have incredible sway over American election cycles. They're hard to trace, and donors can give to them confidentially.
