Throwing Your Vote Away

From Bloomberg Politics:
President Barack Obama warned in a radio interview on Wednesday that Americans who vote for Libertarian Gary Johnson or Green Party candidate Jill Stein in November risk putting Donald Trump into the White House, as he sought to blunt momentum for third-party candidates.
“If you don’t vote, that’s a vote for Trump,” Obama said in an interview on the Steve Harvey Morning Show. “If you vote for a third-party candidate who’s got no chance to win, that’s a vote for Trump.”
Sorry, but both major parties made the decision to nominate highly polarizing candidates. If you don't want to drive voters to third party candidates, you need to nominate candidates with broader appeal to the general electorate. It's hypocritical to make a principled vote in the primary for the candidate who reflects your views and then expect someone else to make a pragmatic vote in the general election because of your poor choice.
