Matt Breunig points out that Democrats are in favor of opening things out so that more people can vote - unless they are Greens, in which case they will move heaven and earth to keep them off the ballot.
Republicans needn't get too sniffy about this, however. Ben Paris, GOP Chair of Seminole County, FL, has been convicted of setting up a fake progressive ballot candidate in order to siphon off Democratic votes.
Republicans also like to keep the Green Party off the ballot. I helped get Jill Stein on the Georgia ballot in 2016, and for reasons that make sense only to themselves the Republicans in charge moved heaven and earth -- as you say -- to get her back off.
Sumus quod sumus
