Why do all these voters flock to Johnson? That’s not hard to understand. They hate the alternatives and are hoping for someone, anyone, who might be better. They see Trump for what he is, a no-nothing con man who bilked investors and local governments for billions, and they see Clinton as a compulsive liar who repeatedly betrayed progressive causes (see Walmart, Tyson, TransCanada, Monsanto, and her undisclosed Wall Street speeches, among others). If voters rate both candidates at the very bottom, even a libertarian like Johnson starts to look better.
