MOST IMPORTANTLY...:

Mitt Romney, Run for President (DAVID FRENCH May 24, 2016, National Review)

 I understand why Mitt wouldn't want to run. He's lost twice, running for president is grueling at best, and the vitriol of 2016 makes 2012 look like a gentlemen's debating club. He would be savaged and vilified by the progressive left and by Trump's ragged coalition of working-class white voters and Vichy Republicans. He'd be blamed for hurting Trump if Clinton won. For Mitt Romney, there is little upside. 

For the nation, however, there is little downside. If either Trump or Clinton win, America loses. A third-party Romney bid would introduce the chance of a different outcome, giving millions of Americans the important option to choose a man of integrity as their president. It's not just politically important that voters have at least one honest choice, and that parents can tell their children that they stood against the debasement of American politics and the bankruptcy of our national character; it's culturally critical.

...a third party run would guarantee Trump couldn't win.
