While Donald Trump and the DNC spin their wheels there is a quiet revolution taking place.

The Libertarian Party can't believe it themselves. It is time they take themselves seriously and organize.

There are several pictures of him pointing his finger at someone. It is probably simply a bad habit and he should stop doing that. It is not voter friendly.

As a sincere Libertarian he has many positions, sort of like Merrick Garland, that attracts both Democrats and Republicans.

The website Hammer of Truth, (click here) in collaboration with the Libertarian National Committee, conducted a survey last week  of 1,563 "known registered voters" who are "current dues paying members or lapsed for less than one year" of the Libertarian Party.
The respondents were invited by the Libertarian National Committee via email. The survey claims a 3.5 percent margin of error, and found, among other things, that Gary Johnson, the 2012 candidate, has a huge current lead in presidential support, with 60.9 percent support. The only other candidate to break 10 percent was Austin Petersen at 16.7.
Before Gary Johnson gets too excited by those results, only 10 percent of the surveyed say they will be delegates at the convention in Orlando this weekend that will actually nominate the president....

Gary Johnson was a business man that ran for Governor in New Mexico and won. He held the office of Governor from January 1, 1995 to January 1, 2003. He has been successful as a Republican on a Libertarian platform.

Personally, he is a cross between Joe Biden and Jimmy Carter without the charity. Mr. Johnson built his own home. He lost a spouse to death and unfortunately they were divorcing after he finished office in New Mexico.

From Wiki"
Johnson was married to Dee Johnson (née Simms; 1952–2006) from 1977 to 2005. As First Lady of New Mexico, she engaged in campaigns against smoking and breast cancer and oversaw the enlargement of the Governor's Mansion. He initiated a separation in May 2005 and four months later he announced that they would divorce. Dee Johnson died unexpectedly on December 22, 2006, at the age of 54 It was established in February 2007 that her death was caused by hypertensive heart disease. Syndicated columnist John Dendahl expressed shock upon her death, as she had been "very vivacious" only two weeks previously. After her death, Johnson said, "People couldn't have gotten a better number one volunteer, because that's what she was. Whatever [the issue] was, she had a caring approach." Johnson and his late wife have two grown children a daughter, Seah (born 1979), and a son, Erik (born 1982). As of November 9, 2012, Johnson is engaged to Santa Fe real estate agent Kate Prusack, whom he began dating in 2008 after meeting on a bike ride. Johnson proposed in 2009 on the chair lift at Taos Ski Valley Resort in New Mexico. He lives in Taos, New Mexico in a home that he built himself.

Johnson is an avid triathlete who bikes extensively....

Johnson was born on January 1, 1953, in MinotNorth Dakota, the son of Lorraine B. (née Bostow), who worked for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and Earl W. Johnson, a public school teacher.

He attended the University of New Mexico from 1971 to 1975 and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in political science. He start his own business called Big J Enterprises, in 1976. Eventually Big J would grown into a multimillion-dollar corporation with 1000 employees. By the time he sold the company in 1999, it was one of New Mexico's leading construction companies.

He is qualified to run for President. I am sure he has his weaknesses in foreign policy, but, no more than Donald Trump. Gary Johnson is a successful business man in construction do different than Donald Trump.
