How Much Is 3rd Party Candidate Pulling Votes Away From Trump? This Answer May Surprise You

An oft-made argument about Libertarian candidates is that they pull votes away from Republican candidates, making it easier for the Democrat rival to nab a victory. But is that the case in this presidential race?


According to One News Now, not necessarily. The author of the story claims that Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is no Ron or Rand Paul. Being in favor of marijuana legalization and in favor of carbon emission taxes to battle global warming, Johnson leans further left than some of the previous Libertarian leaders.

Thus, the author believes that Johnson is actually pulling more votes away from Hillary Clinton than Trump. Do you agree?
