(A recent TD intercepted this question, but I have decided to keep it.)FIRST BONUS
: Question 6 excludes former presidents who reached the general election and lost. There are three presidents who, after leaving office, ran with a third party and lost while garnering 10% or more of the popular vote. Name one of these three presidents. The most popular correct answer will be worth -1 point; the other correct answers will be worth -3 points. There will be no penalty for incorrect guesses.
Minutia: Question 6 was also based on a quiz I wrote for the site (as was #9). Yes, that’s why I’m using it as the basis for the bonus. SECOND BONUS

If you try to answer more than 2, I will only refer to your first 2 guesses in determining whether you receive credit.
