Why are there parties other than the Democratic and Republican ones? I understand their existences, but aren't they basically just taking away votes from Biden at this point? Why would anyone vote for Jo Jorgenson, for example (even if they agree with her political views)? Lot's of people say something along the lines of "a vote for Kanye is a vote for Trump," but isn't this the exact same thing?
Note: I am talking specifically about presidential elections.
