    I like the word 'Trumptastrophe'. (I'd like it better if it wasn't so likely to become a reality.) The Bushes may be trying to resuscitate their image, but I also think this is revenge for Trump humiliating JEB! repeatedly. (That was pretty sweet, actually. By the end, JEB! was begging for applause in half-filled meeting rooms).

    Looking forward to seeing it! Deseret News is predicting a good chance for Johnson in Utah. Where Utah goes, Idaho will follow.

    Johnson supports more than 40 liberty positions. People here were supporting Darryl Perry, who campaigned on lowering the age of consent to puberty, and John McAfee, wanted for questioning in connecting with a murder in Belize. Those types of candidates will never be taken seriously by the American public; Johnson, however, is gaining in the polls, and may turn some states gold this year, based on polling results in Utah and elsewhere.

    Highly unlikely that Trump will win anything in New Mexico. He was polling at 33% in the last poll there.

    Yesterday, state senator Lisa Torraco (R, District 18, Albuquerque) formally endorsed Gary Johnson for POTUS on her Twitter account: Senator Torraco becomes the 10th state official to formally endorse Gary, as more and more officials move to endorse Gary Johnson's growing movement.

    That's a good point. In the case of Mark Madsen, he's not planning to run for election again. So he'll just finish out his term as a Libertarian.

    Yep. Trump seems to be nearly as unpopular in Montana as he is in Utah. The legislators are State Rep. Daniel Zolnikov (R-Billings) and State Rep. Nicholas Schwaderer (R-Mineral County).

    Utah may be turning gold this year, as Trump has seemingly lost the campaign there after multiple polls show underwhelming numbers (29%) now support the GOP, and a recent poll shows Gary Johnson's numbers surging in the state. And now, major GOP party officials in Utah and elsewhere are breaking with the party. It's just been officially announced today that three-term Utah state senator Mark Madsen is defecting to the LP, ditching the GOP and endorsing Governor Gary Johnson. More here.

    Yep. That says it, in part, for me. Although my preference for Gary isn't limited to those fourteen issues. There are about 40 more liberty positions that Gary embraces. And with his poll numbers growing every week, and the Rs and Ds at historic lows (27% and 29% in Utah, for fuck's sake), now's the opportunity to vote for a candidate who supports most liberty issues.

    This morning the Gary Johnson/William Weld ticket for the White House nabs its first endorsement from a state legislator who is running for re-election in 2016 as a Republican. Daniel Zolnikov (R-Billings), a 29-year-old two-term state representative known for his civil libertarian work on surveillance and free speech, is joining with his fellow State Rep. Nicholas Schwaderer (R-Mineral County), who had previously telegraphed his support, in backing the Libertarian. From their joint statement: Having served on the House Taxation committee for the past two legislatures, we know that one of the most important issues facing any government is a balanced budget. We are both in our 20's, and we know that our generation will bear the heaviest brunt of a spending-*crazed federal government. Johnson has the best credentials to fight for fiscal responsibility, based on his record of standing strong against out of control spending while Governor of New Mexico. The Snowden revelations of 2013 revealed yet again that we have federal agencies going far beyond their constitutional authority to surveil the private affairs of millions of Americans. This surveillance is purposely done in secret without adequate oversight by elected representation. If serious action is not taken by the next administration to curb the surveillance state, an Orwellian future awaits America. Johnson is the only candidate who has vowed to uphold our 4th Amendment rights and he is our best chance to preserve privacy in communications. While we do not agree with every single policy stance expressed by Johnson, we recognize that he has by far the best record of any candidate and has the best vision for the future of our nation.

    Thanks for the second video! From this angle, it is even more clear that whatever she did was involuntary. She starts saying, "And I was very proud to..." when the seizure (or whatever) kicks in. The reporters think it's a joke, and she then plays it off as a joke, but it's clear those movements were involuntary.

    The LA Times is reporting that the 145-person event raised about $100,000, not including mega-donors donating to Super-PACs. Chris Rufer alone donated $1,180,000 to one of the two pro-Johnson Super-PACs. This will help offset the $100,000 Gary sent to the New Hampshire Libertarian Party to help them with ballot access.

    I've been having some similar thoughts. Regardless of the party, dishonest officials should be held accountable. Yet at the same time, this could cause ripples throughout the American political spectrum , and particularly this election. What I hope it will do is splinter the Democratic Party, with voters fleeing to Johnson, Stein, and other third parties. What I fear it could do is either cause Sanders voters to shift to Trump, or be brushed under the rug by the Democratic elite, emboldening them to continue their corrupt practices with no respect for the American voters they are disenfranchising. And, as you say, Sanders followers could write in his name instead of voting for Johnson.

    Good point: Clintrump's numbers haven't budged in Utah in the past month and a half. So what is going on there? Is there a base number at which point the establishment parties cannot sink any lower? I don't remember any poll numbers with Clintrump doing as badly as they are doing in Utah: when the Dems and GOP are both polling in the twentieth percentile, their low numbers become historic lows. But as you say, with Johnson's numbers rising and Clintrump now leveling off, it seems as though many of these folks aren't necessarily fleeing Clintrump to flock to Johnson.

    I don't think most of the mainstream LDS members in Utah are liberty-leaning, but it seems like there are a shit-ton of Mormon libertarians in Idaho. Greg Collett and the like.

    Drew Carey hosted the fundraiser at his house last night; the media was invited, and there has been some good exposure in the press: The Daily Beast was present; unfortunately, they tried to get Drew to say that either Clinton or Trump was the lesser of two evils, but Drew refused to take that bait. From TDB: Guests began to assemble around 5 p.m. Saturday evening, the sky prematurely darkening not with the threat of rain but from nearby wildfires that created a haze overhead. “I looked at the sky today and thought, ‘Trump’s about to give a speech,’” Carey joked in an interview with The Daily Beast before the event got underway. “I don’t know what America he’s living in,” he added of Trump, “but he’s crazy.” When Johnson addressed the crowd later, he echoed Carey’s sentiments by asking, “What country is he talking about?” The former New Mexico governor arrived early, wandering into the backyard wearing jeans, Nike sneakers, a seersucker jacket and a white t-shirt that appeared to have a food truck on it. He told us that Carey is one of several celebrities who have expressed their support for him, even if many are not yet willing to do so publicly. “I always say I’m going to protect the innocent until they actually come out,” he said. In addition to The Price Is Right host, spotted in the fundraiser crowd Saturday were Veep’s Diedrich Bader (who also co-starred on The Drew Carey Show) along with Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and former NBA player turned TNT commentator Kenny Smith.

    Yes, Y2 Analytics is the polling company which conducted the poll on behalf of GOP incumbent Mia Love; I posted the Gravis Poll from last month in comparison. The only numbers that have changed are Johnson's. Both these polls show record low polling numbers for the Republicans and Democrats: just 55 or 56% of those polled in Utah will be voting for Clinton or Trump, combined.

    Always good to be skeptical of polls, IMO, as my belief is that they are often used to shape public opinion rather than to gauge public opinion. But this particular poll isn't much different than the Gravis Poll from May/June: Clinton and Trump were at record low numbers in Utah (26% and 29%) then, and they've stayed that low since that time. Only difference between the Gravis Poll and the Y2 Analytics Poll is Johnson has continued to gain since then. Y2 Analytics is an RCP-approved pollster and their polls are approved by 538 as well.

    Great point, R3v. We do have local people in GOP positions here. Francisco, I know, and others as well. It will make more of an impact if they contact RedState or other media to express their disillusionment with the GOP.

    Yeah, we'll see where it goes. The last polls in Utah (from last month) had Gary at 13% (Survey USA) and 16% (Gravis), but that was over a month ago.

    Big news out of Utah, as a poll for the state's fourth congressional district shows Johnson statistically tied with Trump and Clinton there. Only the fourth district was actually polled, but that district includes part of Salt Lake City, and Johnson is polling very high across the state. Link here. Image courtesy 270 to Win.
