Can Gary Johnson break the 1% mark?

Several state polls show GJ at 2-5% and Zogby/Newsmax shows him at 2% nationally. A Libertarian presidential ticket has only broken 1% once. No, it wasn't Ron Paul in 1988. It was in 1984 with Ed Clark / David Koch (yes, of Koch Bros). The LP has never cracked 1 million votes either? Does anybody think Johnson / Gray can do it?

We say "yes." Diebolt says "no." Which one matters?

Answer: Diebolt because they rig, I mean count, the votes. They may increase the vote count to make it closer to 5%, something like 4.9%, which would still mean nothing in terms of no money given for the next election. Unfortunately, that is how this corrupt system works.

no,not until we take back

our own vote counts,out in the open
for all eyes to see,
no machines,no traveling with locked boxes
until this happens we get what we are given
and it will not be who we picked,that will be done for us all
if no one voted,someone would still win
it is what it is,and it stinks to high heaven

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

I hope Libertarian Party breaks 5% !

It'd be a friggin shame if we can't crack 5% acting together. If we can't, the major parties will continue to ignore us. If we can top 5%, it gives us a different party to rally under if we so choose.

If the GOP wins, and the Libertarian party does not break 5%, it gives the GOP total license to ignore us completely. This would be the worst case scenario.

Even if the GOP loses, and we don't top 5% in the Libertarian party, it means we're stuck working within the GOP with all their new top-down rules and blatant corruption.

At least if the Libertarian party tops 5%, it gives us a credible, alternate party to work from instead of putting all our eggs into the GOP basket.

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

oh yea 1% is a done deal

but 5 would be nicer..

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

5% would be enough

to break the two-party tyranny.

GJ is polling nationally at 4-6%
in fact he is more like 10-25%.

Bubonic Chronic #3

because it does kill brain cells.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Depends on who counts the votes.

Bush won some of big city precincts in 2004, you know, including one overwhelmingly black district that had never gone Republican.

GJ can get as high as 80%

with Goldman Sachs candidates both coming in single digits.

Don't trust any of the polls.
Polls are done by criminal status quo loving folks.

GJ can win on Nov. 6th.

7 states have very popular marijuana legalization initiatives and GJ is the only guy on the ballots for it.

60 million poker players in America want legalized online poker -- GJ once again the only guy for it.

I would not be surprised if 'Bomb Iran' Romney comes in 3rd place all over America that is just waking up right now!

Are you intentionally trying to mislead people or am I missing something here?

So what?

Ron Paul supporters are a group of INDIVIDUALS who can make up their own minds. We don't need others to tell us what to do. We are not sheep who can be led.

I love your optimism.

I love your optimism.

I can tell you more

Why GJ has 200.000 more followers than Romney on Google+ social site 1.1 million to be exact?

Because truth is rising!
