Voting for someone other than the top two is entirely viable if you hate both the candidates and cannot bring yourself to answer "for whom should I vote?" with "well, that one is a total asshole and will plunge us into debt, but that one is likely to do the same, but I think it might be a few billion less in debt and the wars the second candidate fights might lose 10 fewer lives, so I'm going to vote for candidate B." If the world's going to burn regardless, and you're 100% likely to lose because both top tier candidates are horrific, then it doesn't matter who you vote for or whether you vote at all; it's a matter of conscience or strategic (ballot access, etc.) reasons.
