Trump! Clinton! Is that all there is? No. Fortunately, we have other choices.
A recent poll shows that if the election were held today, 11 percent of Americans would vote for a Libertarian, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. That’s surprising, since last election Johnson got just 1 percent of the vote.
This year, he’s doing better, probably because Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton hold the highest percentage of “unfavorable” reactions from voters in more than 30 years. I assume the Libertarian total will go higher, since most poll respondents had no opinion about Johnson. They probably don’t know who he is.
They can learn more by watching my Fox Business Network show April 1 and April 8. On those days, I’ll air a debate among the three leading Libertarian candidates. They are Johnson, software businessman John McAfee and The Libertarian Republic founder Austin Petersen. The Party will choose its nominee at the Libertarian convention in Orlando, Florida, over Memorial Day weekend.
What a relief to hear libertarian views after months of hearing Clinton and Trump talk about reducing Americans’ liberties.
Fox Business News will air the debate Friday April 1 at 9:00 PM EST.
