    And for the "preponderate" areas you mention, isn't that a free-market opportunity for someone of the other POV to pick up the business left behind?
    I hear what you're saying. I'm torn. I have often wondered whether black businesses in the 50s and 60s actually opposed desegregation because it threatened their captive market.

      I am really interested in how many yous there are going to be. Particularly if the race widens and it becomes obvious that Trump is a lost cause, this could be a great year for the Libertarians, and they seem to be well placed to take advantage of it.

      I'd love to see a few white knight billionaires start airing Libertarian party ads -- not just for Johnson but for the party, what it stands for, how it is aligned well with a large number of voters, particularly the young. I have always though the natural breakdown of the American electorate is left economic (D), right economic left social (L), and right economic right social (R).
      I definitely fall into the right economic, mid-left social. I just don't think the government should be telling people who they can marry, or how to live their lives in other ways. Its not our business, and there are much more important things to worry about.

        I think there are more of you than most people realize. There are at least as many of you as there are of the right economic / Thumpers who ran the GOP from 1994 through 2014.

              Three. Not that it matters since I live in MN which will go Hillary regardless of whom I vote for. At least I don't have to try to decide which of these two is the lesser evil as they both look awfully evil to me.

                      Probably a bad idea to use the typically white, male, well-educated demographic of a college hockey message board on which to base Gary Johnson's chances at being relevant in this election.

                                I certainly don't expect him to truly relevant. I would love to see him set a record for libertarian candidates though.
