...third party candidates on either side of the political spectrum could play a significant role by peeling away one or two percentage points of the vote.

A vote for a third party candidate is like throwing it away.

I don't care who the Republican nominee is...he will get my vote.

The GOP has shifted so far to the left that its ideology is basically the same as the socialist Democrats. They are essentially one party. An alternative candidate would represent the second party.

I don't care who the Republican nominee is...he will get my vote.

That line of thinking caused the GOP to lose control of Congress and split the GOP. Some members are so hung up on party titles they can't accept the fact the party has adopted socialism. Voting for a GOP socialist over a Democrat socialist will still result in a socialist in the White House.
