Gary Johnson, the former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico who is now a Libertarian and running for the Libertarian nomination again, is now making his pitch directly to #NeverTrump Republicans.
“Look, I can’t support Trump. You can’t either. We can fight for small government and conservative values.”
The Libertarian Party already secured its place on the ballot in 31 states in 2016; one poll in early April found that 19 percent of Americans saying they would vote third party if the nominees were Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. A candidate must get 15 percent in the polls to participate in the fall presidential debates.
