Some may get offended by this (lol) but I think Gary now has more national name recognition than Ron, maybe people only know him for his gaffes but still more widely known.

I think his gaffes really helped him, good or bad, more people needed to know he existed.

I did my normal scan of the cable news channels yesterday. CNN had Gary Johnson in loops. MSNBC was saying his name trying to keep potential Hillary voters away from him. FOX mentioned Johnson as a potential flaw in Hillary's strategy. The press asked Hillary about Johnson on her plane yesterday. And now this.

It may be too little too late, but it appears like he may be having the Perot effect. For those of you old enough to remember, Perot was widely lampooned and criticized by the press - but he was talked about. And his impact was greater than any other third party candidate in my lifetime.

Johnson isn't an ideal libertarian candidate, but he is certainly attracting attention. I expect him to get a bounce in the polls (or at least not lose his percentage like normally happens to 3rd parties after they're excluded from the debates). Good luck on him. Whatever it takes to break up the duopoly.

I hope you're right.

He definitely is having a Perot-like effect, with Perot-like numbers in several states. The latest GCS poll in Maine has Gary at 17%, up from the September 1st SurveyMonkey poll (15%) and the September 20th UNH poll (12%). The biggest numbers remain in NM, but there have been big polls numbers (15% and above) in at least 20 states. If there wasn't a broadcast network blackout of his campaign, he would be winning right now.

The Jimmy Kimmel skit is interesting because, while it's actual coverage of Gary on broadcast television, it demonstrates what the MSM wanted all along: most people still don't know who Gary even is. Doesn't matter, though: New Mexicans know him, and up to 25% are planning to vote for him there. The campaign is targeting voters there and throughout several other states; with a little more work, he could really throw a wrench in things for Clump.

There were 3 Presidential debates in October of 1992 and one VP debate. Perot and Stockdale went to each one. And you can see the result of that exposure. Even though Perot was widely lambasted as weird, unrealistic, and inexperienced. http://www.debates.org/index.php?page=1992-debates



Now, we are in a completely different world now, but there is still a possibility to have an impact. But only if they can get into the debates. The other difference this time is that if this happens, Johnson could actually win a state or two (CO, UT, NM). Depending on how everything else shakes out, this election may become interesting. If they don't get into the debates, then there's really nothing but a reality show to watch.

I happened to catch that. What is left off is that Kimmel started with the same list of Johnson blunders that CNN was running all day. Good little Hillary lapdog.

The late shows have become nothing but far-left propaganda. And it's truly sad if more people know Gray Johnson than Ron Paul. That is just going to make it harder for the next serious Libertarian candidate to be taken seriously.

I certainly have my issues with Gary Johnson, but I feel obligated to point out he is still not even close to the worst Libertarian. That honor is still held by Bob Barr.

Although that was very mean-spirited, the criticisms put forth are unfortunately very valid....

Bill Maher and Sarah Silverman discuss Gary Johnson, Bill calls him a "fucking idiot".

I don't know, I think Jimmy has a good sense of humor, their show has been pretty successful.

How Gary can attract more people then Ron Paul blows my mind.
