Despite the vast ideological landscapes and political freedoms that set the United States apart from much of world, the 2012 presidential election has been, like so many American elections of the past 150 years, ultimately a two-party contest.
He still doesn't get much attention from the mainstream media, but Libertarian presidential candidate Gary E. Johnson could be the key to who wins the White House on Tuesday — especially if he takes votes away from Barack Obama or Mitt Romney in Ohio or Colorado.
"Waste your vote on me," begs Gary E. Johnson to curious or disenchanted voters everywhere. The Libertarian Party candidate is calling on fierce local fans to amplify his message with grass-roots fervor, a campaign strategy of former presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul.
Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil H. Goode Jr. will be on the November ballot in his home state of Virginia, but Republican fears that the former congressman could play spoiler for Mitt Romney should be lessened by recent polls showing Mr. Goode in the low single digits.
Libertarian Gary E. Johnson, who is on the presidential ballot in more than 40 states, successfully got onto Virginia's last week as well despite a challenge from the state Republican Party.
Some Republicans fret he could siphon crucial votes away from Mitt Romney, but Libertarian presidential hopeful Gary E. Johnson is still charging down the campaign trail as a third-party candidate and raising enough money — more than $400,000 this week — to produce a slick new campaign video that paints him as a down-to-earth hero.
With Mitt Romney now the official Republican presidential nominee, Libertarian Party nominee Gary E. Johnson is trying to win over liberty lovers who backed Rep. Ron Paul during the GOP's primary process, raising questions of whether either man could play the spoiler for Mr. Romney in a general election.
Hey, Gary E. Johnson's still standing, still touring: the Libertarian presidential hopeful, in fact, is quite cheerful these days, having drawn 5 percent of the national vote in multiple polls. The phenomenon has prompted Mr. Johnson to insist he be included in presidential debates with President Obama and Mitt Romney, which begin Oct 3.
Ron Paul's campaign conceded Tuesday he won't win enough delegates to be Republicans' presidential nominee, but says he will continue to try to win supporters to influence the GOP's platform and rules at the August convention.
Rep. Ron Paul said Monday he will not compete in Republican primaries in any of the states that have not yet voted — essentially ending the 2012 primary season and leaving the path open for Mitt Romney to win the GOP presidential nomination.
"Republicans have higher levels of well-being than do Democrats," says a huge Gallup health survey of 405,000 U.S. adults that tallies a half-dozen "well-being" indexes that include physical and emotional health, positive behaviors and workplace perceptions. Even the pollster acknowledges that religion could have something to do with it.
Former New Mexico governor and current Republican presidential hopeful Gary E. Johnson said he saw the dangers of the death penalty up close during his two terms in office — and says he is convinced Texas has executed innocent people.
Republican presidential hopeful Gary E. Johnson is "presidential" in his own fashion. He's no Mitt Romney, but then, sometimes Mitt Romney is no Mitt Romney, either.
The GOP base may not be overly excited about its early crop of White House hopefuls, but with one calling for an end to the Federal Reserve, some open to the legalization of marijuana and others pushing to scrap the tax code, it's hard to say they aren't delivering in spades for those craving real change in Washington.
President Obama's approval ratings have risen in recent days, but he was still a punching bag Thursday night for the Republican contenders who squared off in the nation's first official 2012 presidential debate.
Mr. Johnson has argued for the legalizing, regulating and taxing marijuana, while Mr. Paul has advocated abolition of the Federal Reserve Board.
