Libertarian Gary Johnson interviewed by Bill Maher on HBO

Libertarian Party presidential nominee Governor Gary Johnson appeared on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday, July 1, 2016. Johnson has been traveling across the nation to garner as much media as possible since his nomination for president in late May 2016. Video of the interaction between Gary Johnson and Bill Maher can be found below.

Johnson was well-received by Maher and the television studio crowd. We “will be on the ballot in all 50 states,” said Johnson, which surprised Maher. Gary Johnson, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the only three 2016 presidential candidates who will be on the ballot in all 50 states.

When discussing his exclusion from much media and many polls, Johnson said, “They posted a poll a couple days ago where ‘Clinton, Trump and another candidate got 12%, without naming my name. So, it’s a rigged game.” Maher agreed that the system is rigged in favor of the Democrats and Republicans.

The mainstream media and polling organizations continue to promote the false narrative that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the only two candidates for American voters in the 2016 presidential election. Four polls were released on June 30, 2016, on the presidential election and they only included Clinton and Trump. This is dangerous because Gary Johnson will be on ballot in all 50 states and is polling between 9 to 12 percent nationally, and this is during a time that a majority of Americans do not know who he is. The mainstream media does this at their own peril as Americans are waking up to the fact that they are often not told the real story by traditional news outlets. American voters are now doing their own research and are seeking out alternative news venues to get a better picture of what is happening around them.

Ballotpedia, in partnership with Evolving Strategies, came out on June 29, 2016, with their poll regarding how the three major presidential candidates stand in key states in the U.S. Libertarian Party presidential nominee, Governor Gary Johnson stood at an average of 13 percent by respondents, Republican Party presumptive nominee Donald Trump received 34 percent and Democratic Party presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton resulted in a 44 percent showing. The poll was conducted in Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
