Gary Johnson got some national attention Monday (April 2) when he appeared on a favorite program of young lefties, The Colbert Report, urging potential voters to take a serious look at his bid to become the presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party.
Telling comedian and host Stephen Colbert that libertarian ideals are “not so kooky anymore,” the former New Mexico governor quoted a recent poll saying that 82 percent of voters would consider a third-party candidate for president and laid out his strategy to reach 15 percent approval in national polls so that he could earn a spot on the podium with Barack Obama and the eventual Republican nominee in the nationally-televised presidential debates this fall.
