I read just yesterday that Johnson came in at 10% in a new poll. If he can get in the general debates, and Jill Stein for the Green Party, I think the two-party system as we know it -- and hate it! -- will be done.
I don't want to jinx anything, but It's sure looking promising this year

I don't know about promising...but I'm liking the trend, a lot.
This is why, if we're not liking the two major party candidates for whatever reason...instead of not being involved in the process, find a third alternative and vote for them!! That is what is going to make the change happen, not sulking on the couch at home.
I've already got my Gary Johnson button...and I've already been called names for wearing it. So all is good!!
I agree! It's depressing because if everyone who liked him as their candidate but refuses to vote for him because they think he won't get elected actually just voted for him... he may just get elected! Self-defeating logic at it's worst.
People complain we have lost our voice, I believe there is still a chance to take it back. Hopeless romantic and all that.
But I do agree it looks more promising this year. The establishment will fight it tooth and nail but if we scream loud enough, he may just get a fair shake!
