Random Fact: US Elections

Besides Trump and Clinton, there were 29 third-party or independent candidates on the ballot papers of at least some states. The last third-party candidate to win a state was George Wallace in 1968, who won his home state of Alabama. The 22nd Amendment to the US Constitution states that “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice.” – this was passed in 1947 after Franklin D Roosevelt had served four terms. No one has stood for President more often than Norman Mattoon Thomas (1884-1968) who stood six times for the Socialist Party of America.
