Disastrous stretch for Gary Johnson gives boost to Clinton [View all]

Disastrous stretch for Gary Johnson gives boost to Clinton
By Jonathan Easley - 10/07/16 06:02 AM EDT

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson is fading in the polls, giving a boost to Hillary Clinton.

Johnson has suffered through weeks of terrible headlines that have raised questions about his fitness to be commander in chief.

Most notably, the former New Mexico governor couldn’t name a foreign leader he respected in one television interview and in another asked, “What is Aleppo?” in response to a question about the besieged Syrian city.

Democrats have gone on the attack, using Clinton surrogates President Obama and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to make the argument that a vote for Johnson is a vote for Donald Trump.
