...got 10 percent (that is, assuming), I think it would be the same scenario as it was with Perot, i.e.:
If Romney loses, Romney voters would blame Johnson voters for Romney's loss. And like Perot, who actually got 19 percent of the vote, Johnson would also end up as a small, forgotten footnote in history, if that.
But I don't think Johnson will get 10 percent. I think it's the Constitution Party candidate that's more likely to pick up more votes than ever in that party's history because there are a lot of pro-life conservatives who normally vote Republican but won't be voting for Romney for the sole reason he's Mormon.
