COMMENTARY | Could Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, a former New Mexico governor, play a spoiler role in the 2012 election, especially out west? Most polls aren't even giving him the benefit of the doubt, failing to include him as an option.
But those polls that do include Johnson find him doing surprisingly well. He could tip the balance in several western swing states like Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico. And with every state mattering, that could be the difference in a close race in 2012.
A poll by the group "We Ask America" released on June 26 in Colorado shows

Has this Johnson fellow signed a Socialized Medicine bill into law on the federal or state level?
“Could Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, a former New Mexico governor, play a spoiler role in the 2012 election, especially out west?”
If he takes the electoral votes away from Mittens, we will have 4 more years of Dope and Strange. WTF? Are we as stupid as the left says we are? Would things today be anything near as bad if McCain/Paln had won? No. And you know it. You know it...if we don’t push this Marxist/Black Reperation Ahole out of office, we won’t have a chance of surviving his REAL agenda...unbridled, screw America no holds barred with nothing to lose.
Wake up. Hold your nose and vote. Give us a fighting chance to pull ourselves back with a Rino in office. Obama will kill us dead.
How would Gary Johnson spoil anything?
Let's see, he could ruin the chances of a conservative candidate getting elected....no there isn't a conservative candidate, it's not that...,I 'spose he could mess up the political relationship that is so appreciated by all that there is in Washington..., no it can't be that....
It's possible that he could shove us as a nation into socialism if he is too liberal...(you know, those judge appointee's...)
Nope it isn't that....
What is it??
I’m sure little would thrill Johnson and his NM constituents more than being able to reelect Obama.
Notwithstanding our ultra-heavyweight governor's assertion that New Jersey is Romney Country, there are about two chances that Zero won't carry the state, slim and none. So rather than throw my vote away on Romney, I might vote for Johnson. (I'll hold my nose and vote R down-ticket, of course.) If indigo-blue New Jersey might go for Romney, he won't need the votes.
The good news is, he has a large pothead following. Barry better “legalize” marijuana for the non-”medicinal” types before Johnson steals away that voting block.
This freak will take votes from barry
Anti-war, pro-choice, pro gay marriage, pro drug legalization....
So, whose votes is he gonna take?
He was my favorite governor here, because he vetoed so many spending bills they called him Governor No. But then he got all strange with the drug thing, and his libertine side started to show a little.
I’m not so sure Mittens has much to worry about, as far as losing conservative votes.
If he could then the left will surely help him do it.
IS OBAMA WAITING TO DECLARE HIMSELF THE FIRST MOSLEM PRESIDENT OF THE USA by reverting to Islam if re-elected?
Are you working for the Obama campaign? If so good job comrade! Our Dear Leader is depending on people like you!
Well, that would be “historic”! Barry is going to need his own “history” book by the time he’s outta there. LOL!
Hey, it could happen. The way things are going. Nothing is real.
Would you prefer that we forget the fact that Romney signed a Socialized Medicine bill into law?
OK, that is what I was going to say. After the WOT and election of Obama all the conservative leaning libertarians went back to the GOP or over to the Constitution Party.
Been there, done that!
no he wont..he will be lucky to get half a point
You’re premise that Romney=Obama is false.
He is the only alternative, you’re either For Romney or For Obama. It sounds like you’re For Obama.
So... thank you again Comrade.
The whole world has gone insane. IMHO. Maybe those Mayans really were onto something with their calender.
