The act of entering a political race with the intention of swaying the vote towards another canidate. The word was coined by Jim Gearheart, a radio talk show host on NJ101.5 in NJ, after an Independent candidate named Chris Daggett ran for governor of New Jersey and was believed to have been backed by the Democratic Party in order to steal votes from the Rebublican canidate.
In the future, Independent canidates for political office are likely to be accused of daggettry if they have any ties to a major political party.
