According to public opinion polls conducted over the last year, Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and the GOP’s Donald Trump are the two most unpopular presidential candidates in recent American history. The campaign has been marked by Trump’s insults, appeals to hatred and a celebration of violence targeting immigrants and other minority groups. After years of charges of dishonesty and arrogance churned out by right-wing, Republican-affiliated groups, as well as a series major missteps, Hillary Clinton has become a polarizing figure, losing much of her appeal as America’s first female major party presidential candidate.
With the disappointment that comes from the perceived dilemma of having to choose between the lesser of two evils, many voters have turned to support independent party candidates running this year, such as Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and the Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Young, newly engaged voters, many of whom worked on behalf of Vermont's Sen. Bernie Sanders campaign, are also considering casting a ballot for alternative candidates.
Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson has had the most success this year in garnering support by appealing to both disgruntled Republican voters unhappy with Trump, and disaffected Democrats disappointed with Hillary. But many voters don’t know that Johnson and his Libertarian Party advocate a complete rollback of government, from the abandonment of student loans, environmental, gun and health and safety regulations, to the privatization of public education and social security. Between The Lines’ Scott Harris spoke with Adele M. Stan, senior Washington editor with Alternet.org, who examines Gary Johnson’s views and the source of his funding, much of which comes from donors associated with the notorious right-wing activist Koch brothers network.
