Gary Johnson Pulling Votes from Obama in Nevada

by Uri Brito

The typical assertion is that Libertarian Third Party Candidates pull votes from the Republican. But this is not the case in Nevada where Gary Johnson’s 3% is actually benefiting Mitt Romney. Politico reports:

When Gary Johnson’s included he gets 3% and actually takes mostly from Obama, pulling his lead over Romney down to 48/47. That could be something worth keeping an eye on.

Gary Johnson’s civil liberties position is more appealing to some of the Democrats and more Libertarian minded Republicans.
