Libertarian Gary Johnson, a third party nominee will be on the ballots of basically fifty states this year. This is important because no other third party candidate has came close to achieving that. The last third-party presidential candidate to make a significant White House run was Texan Ross Perot but that was in 1992. Winger said his counts are based on printing off candidate lists from the web pages of state election officials, specifying Connecticut, Michigan, Kansas, Colorado and New York. As of Sept. 18, 2012, it seems that Johnson will appear on the ballot in every state except Oklahoma and possibly Pennsylvania and Michigan. The Libertarian party always works hard on ballot access. Johnson is said to be on the ballot in at least 47 states compared to approximately 40 states for Stein, the Green Party candidate.
