That will become more likely to be true as Brexit clarifies..
Dear Dont Taz Me Bro
If you want to change this, we'd have to do it ourselves.
it could take calling meetings between third parties and left out voters,
organize strategies, then lobby the Trump Cruz and Ryan camps.
If the Republicans with money will pay for the cost of organizing the third party and disgruntled/independent voters, why not form an agreement either to all get behind Trump if the decision is to work with him to get jobs and reforms set up to fulfill the strategies that the third parties and voters want; or to split the vote and get enough for Johnson to throw the Election to the House and get Ryan elected. So either cut a deal with Trump or Ryan if those are the two choices. But get representation and plans that the Cruz Sanders Johnson and Stein supporters want implemented into govt. Trump may be able to manage that businesswise, if the GOP will back this plan to unite the conservatives and independents. Either way, either behind Trump or Ryan, whatever the groups agree on if they can get united. though it may take GOP funding and help to organize conferences of all third party voters to get their input under the agreement that all will unite behind whatever candidate and direction is deemed the most viable.
That was tried in 76 and 88 and damn near destroyed the LP. Ron Paul did temporarily and intermittently destroy the Jacksonville LP caucus.88-96. No Thanks!
Latest CNN poll has Johnson at 13%, his highest level yet.
If the Ds have their rent a riot team out in Cleveland, as advertised not to mention the threatened demonstrations in Philadelphia Johnson could become frontrunner. that won't translate into EC victory or victory in the house if that happens but it will win seats in 2018 and more in 2020.
50% will not vote for Hillary, 60% will not vote for Trump and 17% will vote for Johnson. That is 127%, which is about right on the mark.
So, with Bernie endorsing Hillary, I wonder what effect that will have for Gary? Do you think he might pick up some of the disillusioned Bernie supporters? It's a very good possibility that many of them will turn up their noses at Hillary and go for Johnson instead.
Gary Johnson Reaches All-Time Polling High of 13% on Eve of GOP Convention
Three national presidential polls came out over the weekend, and all three contain historically good news for Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson.
A four-candidate CNN/ORC survey conducted July 13-16 delivered the highest number Johnson has ever received in national poll: 13 percent (compared to Hillary Clinton's 42 percent, Donald Trump's 37, and Jill Stein's 5). And there is tangible Garymentum: Compared to the same outfit's poll one month ago, Clinton/Trump are virtually unchanged, the presumptive Green Party nominee Stein is down two percentage points, and Johnson is up four. It's also worth noting that this is the first presidential poll to be conducted after Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton.
I don't have all the historical data at my fingertips, but it's a safe bet that 13 percent is the highest number a Libertarian Party presidential candidate has ever registered. It nudges out the 12 percent that Johnson has twice received in three-way polls that have excluded Stein, including as recently as last week's July 8-12 CBS News/New York Times survey, which had Clinton and Trump tied at 36 percent.
NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll from July 9-13 also represents progress for Johnson, if on the milder side:
HC 41% DT 35% GJ 11% JS 6% July
HC 39% DT 38% GJ 10% JS 6% June
He only needs to get 15%. I think it is ridiculous that they demand a candidate have 15% before participating in the national debates. How else are these 3rd party candidates that don't receive Super PAC funding going to be seen and heard and noticed? I feel so . . . pissed about our clown elections and how we allow the two main parties to manipulate and monopolize.
I predict that Johnson/Weld will not exceed 1% of the vote and will not win even a single vote in the Electoral College.
It depends on whether he makes the cut for the debate.
But given that Johnson pulls more from Hillary than Trump I would think you would be leading the cheers for him.
