question earlier this week and received a wide variety of answers. The question was, "Should Ron Paul Supporters back the Libertarian candidate if Ron
Paul does not win the GOP and does not run as a 3rd party candidate?"
Across the board, supporters were clear on a one specific point, which was that they will never vote for Obama or Romney, period. However, beyond that, there was no clear consensus on the other options available. Plenty of people said they would write in Ron Paul's name on the ballot, regardless of whether it would be counted or not. A number of people also said they would not vote at all, and another group said that they would in fact vote for Gary Johnson.
Take a moment to watch this interview with Gary Johnson and see if anything he says changes your mind about whether or not you would vote for him in the event Ron Paul is not on the ballot. Don't freak out, we are not writing off Ron Paul's chances, we are just facilitating a discussion.
