"We do not take our respondents at their word that they are earnestly interested in seeing the world end," said Joshua Dyck, co-director of UMass Lowell's Center for Public Opinion, "but we do take their willingness to rank two constitutional crises and a giant meteor ahead of these two candidates with startling frequency as a sign of displeasure and disaffection with the candidates and the 2016 election."
In more substantive results, they found that millennials who are likely voters prefer Clinton to Trump by a 3-to-1 margin in a head-to-head race. 12 percent of respondents were undecided. When third-party candidates were included, 61 percent responded Clinton, 22 percent said Trump, nine percent said Libertarian Gary Johnson, and five percent said Green Party candidate Jill Stein. The remaining three percent remained undecided and probably asked what happened to that option involving the meteorite.
The election is rapidly approaching, with Wednesday seeing the final presidential debate. It remains to be seen if "giant meteor strike" can make headway as a write-in candidate before then.
