Majority Of Non-Voters Want Third Party According To Poll

LP-Debate

According to a USA Today and Suffolk University poll two-thirds of Americans will not vote in November because [the] system […] is beyond reform and repair.” Only 22% of respondents stated that the major parties are doing good.

A majority of the non-voting respondents stated that they would like to see a third party or multiple parties with 57% saying that it was necessary.

This information provides a great opportunity for the Libertarian Party who have been claiming for years that Democrats and Republicans are both corrupt and failing the country. Libertarians need to reach out to those not enthused by the state of politics and show that there is hope in electing Libertarians.

Since joining the Libertarian Party in 2016 (after discovering Gary Johnson as a disaffected Bernie Sanders supporter), Luke Henderson has been active in the liberty movement through journalism, and political activism. At the beginning of 2017, Luke had his first piece of writing published by Being Libertarian and quickly became a contributor to the libertarian news site, The Libertarian Vindicator. Through the Vindicator, Luke discovered his passion for addressing critics of the philosophy and bringing together different factions of liberty lovers which compelled him to become an editor for The Libertarian Coalition, a forum dedicated to an open-minded discussion of libertarian ideas from all walks. After many guest contributions to Being Libertarian, Luke was asked to join the website as a contributor, where he writes his column Scoring For Liberty, which discusses sports, politics, and economics from a libertarian lens, and his Educator series that seeks to strengthen libertarian’s understanding of educational techniques and policy to better arguments against public education. Luke is one of the District 1 Executive Committeemen for the Missouri Libertarian party, and the founder of the Missouri Chapter of the Libertarian Positivity Caucus. Outside of politics, Luke is a paraprofessional for the Special School District of St. Louis, a musician, composer, and a loving husband and father.

  1. According to a USA Today and Suffolk University poll two-thirds of Americans will not vote in November because [the] system […] is beyond reform and repair.”
    So the majority of “Americans” don’t want “government”. Therefore, political representation is a hoax and politicians are illegitimate.

  2. Sorry, but the Libertarian Party is dead. The Libertarian Party leadership is not serious about winning anything anywhere, they are just focused on keeping the money coming to pay their salaries and go through the motions. I left the Libertarian Party when the Executive Director refused to meet me to discuss the election reform act, coalitions with other small parties and Independents, and more. So sorry, but until that individual is FIRED, there is no Libertarian Party to speak of.
