Is a vote for the third party candidate a wasted vote? Arizona residents are leaning toward no, it’s not.
The Libertarian nominee, Gary Johnson could be the spoiler for the Clinton campaign in the Grand Canyon state. Johnson is currently polling 9% of the vote, specifically among Independent and millennial voters.
Arizona holds a strong Libertarian attitude, which is making Gary Johnson look like a valid option to voters right now. The number of registered Independent voters in Arizona is higher than registered Democrats, which could help Johnson gain traction.
Gary Johnson’s campaign has the ability to make or break Arizona from going red or blue. Currently, the state is still leaning toward Donald Trump.
The Libertarian nominee will not be able to participate in the presidential debates, but is looking to increase his campaign’s awareness through social media.
As of now though, Johnson is looking promising to Arizona voters.
