House Election
A “non-fusion third-party candidate” is defined as a candidate who was nominated by only one minor
party and not the Democratic nor Republican Party. A “major party-minor party fusion candidate” is a
candidate nominated by the Democratic or Republican Party and at least one third-party, while a “minor
party-minor party fusion candidate” is a candidate who is nominated by at least two third-parties but not
the Democratic or Republican Party. As the graph shows, there were very few minor party-minor party
fusion House candidates over the past century. Third-parties and major parties have co-nominated House
candidates over the past 116 years, but this has never been a widely used tactic in comparison to simply
running third-party candidates.
