Libertarian Gary Johnson says he'll be on presidential ballot in every state, by far outpacing any other third-party nominee

Libertarian Gary Johnson says he'll be on presidential ballot in every state, by far outpacing any other third-party nominee | AP Government!!!! | Scoop.it

Libertarin Gary Johnson stated that he will be on 50 state ballots this November. This could be true, but Oklahoma has not placed him on the ballot yet, and Michigan and Pennsylvania are still in question. He also stated that he was the first third party candidate to ever be on 50 state ballots, except in 1980, 1992 and 1996 third party candidates appeared on all state ballots. Johnson will be attending the presidential candidate debates, Ross Perot being the last third party candidate to be invited in 1992. I think Johnson will be a good candidate to watch for in this upcoming election sue to the fact he seems pretty confident.

This poll is more recent and therfore more accurate, since polls become more accurate the closer they are to election day. Obama and Romney are still within one point of one another! It's still a neck in neck race!
