Some might vote for Gary Johnson

Gary "What's Aleppo?" Johnson?

Gary "Who's Harriet Tubman" Johnson?

That...feels unlikely.

He still sounds much better than those two.

Trump, sure. But if you seriously think Gary Johnson is a better candidate than Hilary Clinton...well it explains how far Trump got, that's for sure.

I think at this point just choosing any American at random would likely yield a better president. The reason to vote vote Gary Johnson is because it would be nice to see a viable 3rd party next time around not because he can win or because he would be any good

I've heard less bad things about Johnson. Granted, I heard less things about Johnson. I wonder if it's a good thing, given what shitstorm your head's in overseas.

I won't deny that we're fucked. We're totally fucked. But I want to be the least fucked possible, and Hilary Clinton is in a position to leave me as unfucked as possible in 2016..

That is what I keep hearing. Best of luck with the election.

Maybe they will vote for Jill Stein?
