It’s a two-party system, and why that should make you feel better

Sometimes I get depressed that, even though he’s likely to lose, 44% or so of voters are going to vote for Donald Trump.

But! That doesn’t mean that 44% of people agree with everything he does. Although we do have third parties, even people who vote for them realize that they’re voting on principle (or as a protest), and either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump is going to be president. People who vote for him probably like some things about him and dislike other things about him. It doesn’t mean that 44% of people approve of sexually assaulting women, or building a wall between the US and Mexico, or think that the election is “rigged”, etc., etc., etc.

(I admit there’s some wishful thinking in here!)
