Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson started the day with an embarrassing gaffe after asking, “What is Aleppo?” but may have fully recovered with this hilarious answer he gave to The View the same day.
Johnson, who gave up smoking pot for his run for the presidency and thinks that First Amendment guarantees of religious liberty are a “black hole,” was asked by Joy Behar, “If someone had a gun to your head, would you vote for, Hillary or Trump?”
“I’d let it go off,” Johnson answered to loud laughs and cheers from The View audience, expressing how many Americans must feel when a nation of over 300 million nominates two candidates as horrible as Hillary or Trump.
Johnson is a goofball, and is likely taking away more support from Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump, considering his radical anti-life, pro-drug, and anti-religious liberty position under the guise of “LGBTQABCDEF…… rights,” a crying shame considering that the Libertarian Party should be able to have major breakthrough with disgruntled conservatives this year.
Gary Johnson, who will be on the ballot in all 50 states, is gaining some traction despite his oddities. A new polls shows that the former two-term New Mexico governor is in double-digits in no fewer than 42 states, and in 15 of those states, he’s at 15 percent or above. In his homes state of New Mexico, Johnson is polling at 25 percent, his best performing state
Presidential debate rules dictate that a third-party nominee must be at 15 percent in national polls in order to be included in national presidential debates.
