A four-way presidential race could be in the making, according to noted conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg in the Los Angeles Times.

The theory floated by Goldberg says if Sen. Bernie Sanders, who remains nipping at Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton's heels, gets fed up with establishment Democrats and breaks off for a third-party run, the race could become even wilder.

"Sanders' third-party bid could well encourage a fourth-party bid from an authentic conservative, such as [Mitt] Romney or Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse," Goldberg writes.

"[Sanders] looks like he's creating a liberal tea party movement within the Democratic Party … What if he concludes that the party rigged the game against him and bolts to run as the independent he is?

"In a four-way race (or five-way if you include the Libertarian Party), all bets are off.

"Theoretically, a winning share of the popular vote in a four-way race could be 26 percent. In a five-way race, 21 percent (which is where Romney is polling right now)."
