Gary Johnson: An uphill battle to catch a wave, win the presidency

CNN.com

By Dan Merica


Gary Johnson says there are three keys to his campaign being successful: he needs you to know who he is, he needs to be on the ballot in as many states as possible and he needs other libertarians to support him.


And for the next two months, Johnson, the Libertarian party candidate for president and acknowledged underdog, will be zig-zagging across the country to make those admittedly unique goals a reality.

Gary Johnson strongly supports both the Constitution and civil liberties. Where does he stand on the issues? He would eliminate the IRS, audit the Federal Reserve, end the war in Afghanistan, reform health care, allow gays to marry, and legalize and regulate marijuana.


There are several issues that voters frequently ask about, but I will touch on a few that have been getting a lot of attention this election season.

By Charles Mahtesian

The party is involved in litigation to get him on the ballot in the three remaining states, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Michigan, where a judge ruled last week that Johnson could not appear on the ballot because he also ran as a Republican in the state’s February presidential primary.

By Matthew Reece


During the past week, new polling results for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson have come from Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Ohio, and Virginia. These new polls have Johnson winning 3% of the vote in Colorado, 7% in Montana, 7% in New Mexico, 4.5% in Ohio, and 3.8% in Virginia. A Zogby poll released on September 3 had Johnson at 4.3% nationally. While these numbers are not large enough to seriously challenge for the presidency, they do exceed the margin of victory between President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in every case.

This weekend, it was announced that Pennsylvania judges ruled in favor of the Libertarian Presidential candidate. That brings Johnson’s total to 48 states and DC. If the candidate is equally successful in Michigan and Oklahoma, he will be the only challenger to the establishment’s Obama and Romney appearing on ballots in all 50 states.
