  • The Libertarian Party is celebrating Gary Johnson’s status in the current polls. Last time I saw it was about 9%, pretty good but any excitement, I submit is premature. The system has a way of chewing up third parties & spitting them out. In 1965, William F. Buckley was polling as high as the low 20s in the race for Mayor of New York. He came in around 16%. In 1968, George Wallace was polling so high that for a while he was ahead of Hubert Humphrey. Wallace faded to a poor third but did capture a number of southern states, to no one’s surprise. Richard Nixon won. For whatever it’s worth, I will not vote for anyone who is not pro-life and Johnson isn’t.

  • With more and more Republicans backing off on their support for Trump, even withdrawing their support, could the Republican Party as a whole decide to reject Trump? It is too far into the election campaign to put withdraw Trump and to put forth another candidate but could they decide, as a party, to endorse Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson? Would they? Wouldn’t that be sweet!
