Harry Enten at FiveThirtyEight explains why Gary Johnson Isn’t Fading:
Why is Johnson’s support proving more durable than past third-party candidates’? The most obvious answer is that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are extremely unpopular for major party presidential nominees; if third-party voters eventually settled on a major party nominee in past campaigns for fear of “wasting their vote,” they may be less willing to settle this year. (Of course, Johnson’s support may simply fade later than past third-party candidates.)
It would be great if had more than two shitty choices for president and it wasn’t about who got the most campaign contributions.
