|COLUMBUS—Only those who have factored in the presence of Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson on Tuesday’s ballot have a chance at predicting who will win Ohio’s 18 Electoral College votes and the presidency.
A CNN poll released Friday had Johnson coming in at 5 percent in Ohio when his name, along with other alternative party candidates, was included in the poll.
Johnson, a former two-term governor of New Mexico, is on the ballot in 49 states plus the District of Columbia, and has been polling as high as 10 percent in some states.
“Voters are sick of the two big-government parties and their unwavering support for growing defecits, wasteful foreign wars, and disappearing civil liberties,” said Kevin Knedler, Libertarian Party of Ohio chair. “Gary Johnson voters aren’t buying the Romney and Obama hype and a lot of people are going to be very surprised at our vote total Tuesday.”
