Agreed, and the same goes in the other direction. Convincing disaffected Trump voters to stay at home, just not vote for Trump, or vote for a Third party candidate is a plus for Democrats, even if its only half as useful as convincing them to vote for the Democratic nominee instead.

I was still on my village board in the 2016 election. As such, I did not see it as appropriate to discourage people from voting, though it was obvious I’d first supported Sanders in the caucus, then Clinton in the general election (something about my yard signs I guess).

That didn’t deter my wife though, who talked to every person in town about what a horrible person Trump was and promoted Gary Johnson as an alternative to voting for Trump.

That might explain the large Libertarian turnout in my town in the last election (though not nearly enough to prevent Trump from taking my precinct by an overwhelming margin).
