Effect of third-party votes

While the country is waiting for the announcement of the next U.S. president, people are shifting their focus to third-party votes. Current third-party voters are expressing their joy about the things they are achieving, while major-party voters are angry at third-party voters for “wasting their vote.” According to Politico, Gary Johnson received 203,439 votes in Florida, meaning 2.2 percent of votes went to Johnson. With Donald Trump taking Florida with a 1.5 percent lead over Hillary Clinton according to the Associated Press, votes for Johnson affected the outcome for Florida.

Twitter has gone berserk over the election and especially over third parties.
