I see left wing spammers have buggered up this poll
there are more actual members who voted no than the "most popular" choice
What happened is a lot of his ideas were adopted by the two major parties. He lost the race, but some of his ideas lived on. But what you just said about his money is true, without money a candidate is nothing. Without money Clinton could not have won.
Politics is all about money, not messaging, ideas, solutions to problems, visions etc. Money and the negative ads to make the voter hate the other fellow more than they hate you. Then everyone wonders why they can't govern.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
Well, that's an explanation of sorts.
It's like someone having career aspirations of working for the NRA or for the Brady Campaign. It's like someone getting up on each Sunday and spinning a roulette wheel to determine if they're going to worship God or Satan.
It makes sense to someone to be for the Green as your ideal choice and a Democrat as your slightly less socialist backup / mainstream option. It makes no sense to be for the diametrically opposed extreme socialist and the extreme capitalist.
Between a free market guy and a lady that wants more government wage controls / considers phone and internet service to be a right and wants to nationalize like damn near everything... by what metric could someone agree with both of these views?

Not everyone fits into your little black & white misconceptions about the world. Like I said: get over yourself.
To call something quantifiable like economic liberty "propaganda" is just disingenuous. Only someone with a tyrant trapped within them would deny someone the ability to enter into contracts freely and the fruits of their labor, and force them to belong to some workers' collective, which is what left-libertarianism is all about.

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.
