Instead, they fall head over heals for the exact opposite: Donald J. Trump.
At the "I Side With" website, Johnson has more than 90% support from Libertarian voters for the Libertarian candidates. They also have a nifty quiz for identifying the candidate you most agree with.
Well thanks for the link to the quiz. It's pretty involved, so I believe the results are relatively accurate.
You're welcome -- glad you liked it! I like the variety of options for answers. Most polls usually provide just two or three possible answers and they're almost never my answers. That's one reason I don't trust polls. I think most folks are far more thoughtful and nuanced.

he needs 15% in 5 polls to get into the general election debates.
He'll need to peel off more dems. pot should bring quite a few in.
I don't think libertarians can build the size of voters needed with their current platform. I think if they came out against open borders they could have a chance. they do not have the right set to build up a large base. I say this as a libertarian myself.
ideally clinton goes to prison and its trump v johnson and johnson wins.
I'll have to say that I think of myself considerably more centrist than what the quiz revealed. But, as I said before, that's probably because of my views on government healthcare. Which is based on some really bad experiences that I've had over the years with health insurance companies.

I, too, voted for him last go round. I will again, in all likelihood, this time 'round.
But the Green Party has some interesting notions worthy of being, at the least, listened to.
A ticket with Johnson and Stein on it, however unlikely, would certainly perk up my interest--higher than it is already.

Very few people are paying attention anymore, or doing their own research. We live in a country of band-wagoners and know-it-alls who actually have no clue whatsoever. Brainwashed people everywhere.
It's frustrating... SO maybe it's a good thing a trainwreck is coming. We need a collapse, desperately, period. Let it fall!

For people that keep saying well he cant win... thats not the point, 5% in a presidential election gets them federal money, and into the debates by law.
Once they have someone that isnt a bought and paid for hack (republicans and democrats) people will start to hear some real ideas.
Folks are already upset, they just need more information for the change to truly start...
I wish him the best, Ill be voting Veterans party, but if we dont break the 5% thresh hold and the libertarians do Ill be thrilled.
Johnson is for bare bones, constitutional government while Stein is for BIG government controlling everything. They are not going to be on a ticket together. Is Stein going to become a Libertarian or is Johnson going to be BIG government? That's the only way and that won't happen. Wake up people. It's just like people who say they were for Ron Paul 4 years ago but now they are for Bernie. You must just go by the feel of it because if you were paying attention and being honest, you cannot support both.

It's time, and past, for there to be a third, or even more, party(s). If for no other reason then to be able to vote a single issue, if that's your preference.
It's going to happen, it's only a matter of time. Now is that time within my lifetime...? I don't know.
More and more of us are getting fed up with the same ol', same ol' the two major parties regurgitate during every election cycle.
The more of us that vote independent, obviously, the faster it'll happen.
