He had much better numbers than either Johnson or Stein and even he got soundly trounced.
He was running below Johnson heading into the first debate, which the major candidates unwisely invited him to. He also had millions to spend on prime time TV infomercials.
Johnson is woefully ignorant on foreign affairs
He's certainly not as strong as a former Secretary of State! I mean, few people alive are going to have as much expertise as Hillary in that department. But his brain farts notwithstanding, he was at least a governor from a border state. He's probably more qualified than Bill Clinton was in this area. I mean, this is why there is a Secretary of State - the president doesn't need to be an expert on all things. He could certainly smack Hillary around on immigration.
So I'm voting strategically.
Yes, but in the process you are supporting the status quo. That's fine if you think it is your best option, but I think we are on the wrong path in the areas of foreign policy, debt, civil liberties (especially domestic spying and the dual wars on drugs and terror), corporate and union money in politics, "free trade" rather than "free markets", etc. Hillary is essentially a living embodiment of the establishment.
And it's ignorant to not recognize and understand that.
That's not very nice.
