You may not know this, but there are three candidates that will be on the ballot in November.
In addition to Hillary Clinton’s Democrats and Don Trump’s Republicans, the Libertarian Party (LP) has secured universal access across America.
The Libertarians will be deciding on their ticket at their convention next week, but the presumptive favorites are giving pause to the majors.
That’s because the LP has former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson and former Massachusetts Governor William Weld as their likely ticket…both extremely successful and wildly popular in their time in office. Both re-elected overwhelmingly. These guys know how to run a campaign.
And now, even before they are officially nominated, there have been three national polls that have Johnson pulling double digits against Trump and Clinton. It has been assumed that once they have the nomination, they could make things even more interesting than they already are.
But why wait! They already are making things interesting, and the Democrats should be in full panic mode!
As reported by HotAir…
Johnson draws a higher percentage of Democrats than he does Republicans. Not only that, but he’s killing Clinton among independents, with Trump pulling nearly twice as much indie support as Hillary thanks to Johnson siphoning off votes.
HotAir kinda buries the lead…GARY JOHNSON IS WITHIN 1 POINT OF CLINTON AMONG INDYS!
So not only is the fiscally conservative (like the GOP) and socially liberal (like the Dems) party pulling independents, they are pulling equally from both major parties!
You might think this is academic since they are only at 10%, but let me leave you with a couple of final points.
They haven’t actually chosen their nominee yet, and…
While Clinton and Trump have almost 100% name ID, Gary Johnson is unknown to 72% of voters!
He has plenty of room to grow, they don’t. Interesting indeed.
