Presidential Debate 2012: Gary Johnson Support Grows

Both President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee are gearing up for their first presidential debate showdown in Denver on Wednesday, but there is one man who will not be participating in the prime-time television debate: libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. That decision has angered some Gary Johnson supporters so much that at least two of the original sponsors of the 2012 presidential debates have decided to pull their support.

Philips Electronics and the women's organization YWCA have dropped their sponsorship, after they got flooded with letters from Gary Johnson supporters and the watchdog groups Open Debates and Help the Comission. According to US News, the non-profit which runs the presidential debates, the Commission on Presidential Debates, relies heavily on sponsors, so the decision by Philips Electronics and YWCA is likely to make a real impact.

It's a shame

that Gary didn't get started on this a lot sooner! (or the libertarian party) I think he waited out of respect for Ron. Well he does have the next 4 years to make a lot of headway.
I wish I could say I believed he could be in the debates or win this year. He still has my vote and support.

Romney's Entire Campaign Is Based On Not Being Barack Obama

His campaign slogan could've just as easily been, "Elect me because I'm not Barack Obama". People see through his weather vane approach though. And when you think about what he really is planning to do - attack Iran (based on his hiring all of Dubya's neocon foreign policy advisers) and bailout banks, he's every bit as much of a disaster as Obama will be.

Like Ive all ready said.
The only thing growing is the OP's NOSE!!
GJ support is not rising, ITS FADING! More LIES and distortion.
No ONE I know even knows who GJ is!!!lol
and Im in RPs own district.
several states dont even have a donation logged in their state for him/.
He misses ENTIRE states and Territories! I cant make this up, then were told his support is growing????
that is laughable!

GJ support is not rising, ITS FADING and losing steam quickly.
Thats why all the lawsuits were thrown against the US Tax payer by Gov GJ.
He needs to stay relevent and is all ready in massive debt and cant afford media ads because hes a big spending lib that believes in running his campaign in massive debt even though hes on the gvt DOLE! Then he throws lawsuits on the fed gvt who is that??
The American Tax Payer thats who.
The tax payers will foot the bill for GJ lawsuits and no one else.
Ron Paul must be appalled. He never once threw a federal lawsuit over not getting enough mney from the taxpayer for his campaigns because HE NEVER TOOK PUBLIC MONEY!!!
It is IMMORAL to accept public funds for your own private campaign.
No support. Thats why he did it
down vote all you want cry babies, but GJ is TOAST and will owe hundreds of thousands to innocent American staffers and venue holders that gave credit to him, just like Newt and Bachmann left the stage.
stop cying and deal.

Glad to read that you now

Glad to read that you now admit that Johnson won't be in the debate. It won't be long before you admit what the rest of us already know: Gary Johnson will not be elected President.

hmm

The Judge has to rule on GJ lawsuit BEFORE the first debate that occurs tomorrow.

Thanks for your F** apathy!

The truth hurts

I'm telling you the truth if like the majority of Americans you'd rather be lied to listen to MSM. Johnson will not be in tonight's debate, will not carry any states and nation wide will get a low single digit % of the vote.

It really says something

It really says something about the control the two major parties have on the commission that, even after advertisers pull out, they still won't allow Johnson to debate. Guess we gotta keep working at it, till they're destroyed.

This should be our focus going forward. I wish a leftist 3rd party candidate were running so we could unite forces against the two major parties.

There is Jill Stein of the Green Party,

but I don't think she had the organization to be on the ballot in many states.

Jill Stein

she is projected to be on the ballot in between 35 and 40 states.
Now I think she is only on 28.

she is on 37 ballots and DC and still working on 6

They are on 37 ballots and DC and still working on 6. SOme are being litigated. She is running as a write-in in 5 more. So that leaves 2 will she won't be on the ballot at all: Oklahoma and Nevada.

taken from her website: http://www.jillstein.org/ballot
lat updated Sept. 12th. So, some of the 6 working on ones might be decided by now.

If GJ goes viral he can win

GJ can win.

Ross Perot did not have the internet (by-passing the corrupt MSM)

I'm thinking a hunger strike.
A few dozen folks...

This presidential election might be our last chance.

No one I know knows who GJ is and thats a FACT!
and just because someone does not like GJ philosophies of gvt does not mean they are a romney OR Obama voter.

GJ support is not growing, it is FADING!
Thus the lawsuits to get noticed and spend more of the taxpayers money suing..wait for it, THE TAXPAYER.

who are you voting for

Why not Johnson? Are you a Romney supporter?

.

I dont know what I will do yet, but I do know I wont vote for the FRAUD known as GJ!!!
Why you ask???
If for no OTHER reason the OP supports him so I KNOW he must be EVIL and a LIAR!

So

you are saying you wouldn't vote for Ron Paul either because LL supported him?
You and your rants and childishness are pathetic.
Obviously you have nothing better to do than to be a disruption.
