    Which Libertarian Candidates can win in 2018?

    Of all Libertarian candidates running in 2018, no matter if its national or state or local elections, which people have a realistic chance at winning their election or at the least, contending in their election? If anyone could offer some names and where/what the person is running for, Id appreciate the help compiling this list.
    Thanks

    I'll be voting for a few (down ballot, local stuff), but they aren't going to win.
    I compiled a "brief" history of events since October 2008 that are defining the global currency war and the role that gold is playing:

    Tin Foil Hats, Economic Reality and the Total Perspective Vortex

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?

    For the first time since I started checking there are no 3rd party candidates, libertarian or otherwise, on the ballot in Tennessee. We have a boatload of independents running. (Seriously, more independents are running for governor and senator then there people running for the GOP or democratic nominations for those offices). I know nothing about any of these independents so none will get my vote. Maybe I'll write in the Collins.

    As Dean mentioned, above, Gary Johnson is polling very well right now: the last poll had him at 28% vs. 36% for the Democrat, 10% for the Republican, and 26% undecided. Another poll, taken a few days before that, had similar numbers. However, there have apparently been no other polls since September 24th. Gary's candidacy has rejuvenated the LP in New Mexico, and they have a ton of candidates running this year.

    If nobody gets above 50% does that mean a runoff?

    No. NM is not a runoff state.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    The GOP candidate should drop out and endorse GJ.

    He should, but he won't. Instead, the GOP in New Mexico has called for Gary to drop out. But the Republican, Rich, cannot win.

    Gun Owners of America just released their scorecard of the candidates. in New Mexico, Gary gets an A. Rich gets a C. New Mexico ranks #4 nationally in the number of guns per capita: New Mexicans love their guns. It's a rural state with a very scattered population. When I drive out to my property in NM, I rarely even see another pick-up on the road. I gas up at a station which has no attendant. People want protection.

    If their percentages were reversed the Republicans including Fox News would call for exactly that.
