    I am not happy with Obama or Romney for various reasons and Johnson may be one of those rare libertarian candidates that isn't insane. He has some radical ideas like fair tax, but that will get curbed by congress anyway, so its a safe bet.

    Interesting level of support here for Gary Johnson. I wonder how much this will be reflected in the general public. Obviously the general public doesn't know as much about Gary Johnson as people at DP do, but if this level of support is any indication, maybe he could at least crack 2-3.%

    What is your point in referring to him by his middle name? Yes, it is his middle name... so what? It's not like he chose it. It's not like he uses it in daily life. It's not like he was born after people like Saddam came to power, and his parents chose it for that reason. Hence, it doesn't mean anything... AT ALL. It's simply juvenile crap, and clearly demonstrates a complete and utter lack of discernment and object thinking ability on your part.

    Meh. Probably not much.

    Well considering the lack of exposure they get, its fairly impressive.

    Their radical positions are a much bigger obstacle.

    Libertarian and 3rd party candidates in general always have a higher familiarity rate and support from those that are politically minded because they are the ones that are most hooked into politics enough to actually think about them. I imagine the reality is that the Libertarians will pull in their normal amount of votes or MAY have a successful campaign for them....which would be topping 1%

    zyph I dont know if I can agree with your statement that libertarians are more hooked into politics...theres many dems and traditonal gopers that are tuned into politics just as well....libertarians the way I view them have dual goals....some I think are genuinely good for the country and some I think are totally nuts...libertarians ever since I can remember knowing anything about them consistently get the same 8-11% support over the years Ron Paul stayed right in that bracket...I predict his son will do worse down the road...hes insane

    It might be a little different this time around, as it seems that the Daily Show and Colbert are giving some time to Johnson as he states his goal of getting enough votes to get the libertarian party into the presidential debates for 2016. How much of an effect that will have, who knows. But it'd be nice to have a third voice, any third voice, heard.

    At least here at DP he's running neck & neck with the Romney-Bot. Funny though, he doesn't make much Impression on the polls, or at least the pundits aren't reporting any level of support. Is he doing better than the reporting suggests, I wonder?
