Gary Johnson Will Do Badly Against Clinton and Trump

by Right Wing Fighter

Gary Johnson has been nominated as the Libertarian Party candidate for president. Some people think that since Clinton and Trump are unpopular in many polls, that he’ll be able to scrape off enough support to win.

That’s pure fantasy. Bill Kristol is saying the same thing about his efforts to organize a third party to run against Trump. It will fail, because at bottom nobody is going to trust the government to an essentially unknown party.

It’s common knowledge that the American electorate likes to stick to what it knows. The Republicans and Democrats, despite their faults, are known to the electorate and will be the only serious options in the fall. Other parties, like the Libertarian and Constitution parties, are never taken seriously and are a pure waste of time. The American people aren’t going to vote in a candidate from an unknown party.
