Democrats Now Fear the Gary Johnson Candidacy as Clinton Poll Numbers Fall



Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers against Donald Trump have fallen to all-time lows, and now according to Real Clear Politics is barely holding on to a victory in the Electoral College.

Now that we have seen the collapse of the Clinton campaign the blame is starting to go around and specifically the Clinton machine and Democrats are taking their shots at an unlikely source, Gary Johnson.

From Politico:

Gary Johnson said a Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump presidency would be deeply flawed and shrugged off the notion that he could play spoiler in a tight presidential contest, despite fears among Democrats, in particular, that he’s snatching votes from Clinton.
“The people voting for me are voting for Gary Johnson,” the Libertarian presidential contender said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” with George Stephanopoulos. “I take great pride in the fact that I am actually offering an alternative. … Fifty percent of…

Libertarian White House hopeful: Hillary and Trump represent just 30 percent of the electorate


In a presidential campaign season featuring polarizing front-runners and infighting among Republicans and Democrats, Gary Johnson sees an opening.

That’s if more folks realize they have options outside of the country’s two juggernaut parties, says the former two-term New Mexico governor.
The Republican-turned-Libertarian got something of a pick-me-up late last month. He drew 11 percent support in a nationwide Monmouth University poll asking registered voters whom they would pick in a contest between Republican Donald Trump, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Johnson, the 63-year-old fitness freak who has climbed each continent’s tallest mountain (Everest was the biggest challenge).


Voters do not trust Scott or Crist, turning toward Wyllie in Florida

In a new Quinnipiac University poll out this morning, July 23, 2014, the Libertarian Party of Florida candidate, Adrian Wyllie gains steam as Florida voters seek out alternatives to Rick Scott and Charlie Crist. The last Quinnipiac University poll conducted on the Florida Gubernatorial race on April 30, 2014 did not include Wyllie’s name, so now Quinnipiac has a base-line to go by for future polls. Wyllie starts that base-line at 9% throughout Florida and that is with 92% of those polled not knowing enough about him to form an opinion. This is clearly a failure by the general media to inform the public about the candidates running to be Florida’s next governor.



Harvard survey reveals libertarian streak among youth

Last week, Harvard University’s Institute of Politics released its 25th “Survey of Young Americans Attitudes toward Politics and Public Service,” providing valuable insight into the political mindset of the millennial generation. Conducted biannually since 2000, the poll traces 18- to 29-year olds’ dispositions on various hot-button issues of the day, with a sample size of 3,000 in the fall and 2,000 in the spring. While no survey is an absolute authority on the fluctuating opinions of a society as diverse as the U.S., Harvard’s last two seem to signal that young Americans’ attitudes are moving in a more libertarian direction, seeking fiscal discipline and social tolerance from their policymakers.

Obamacare remains as unpopular as ever

Republicans want to repeal it, Democrats are running away from it, and the American people continue to hate it. A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll out yesterday found sentiment for the so-called Affordable Care Act (ACA) is largely unchanged since November. According to the poll 46% of Americans have an unfavorable opinion about the law, while 38% of Americans are in favor of the law. Sixteen percent of Americans are either undecided or refused to answer the question during the poll.
