ATPR: Additionally, according to a Cincinatti.com published today, the Libertarian Party of Ohio plans to submit petitions before the Wednesday, August 10th deadline to place Gary Johnson on the ballot. The party says it has “many more” than the required 5,000 signatures. In 2012, Gary Johnson received 49,493 votes, or 0.89% in the state, lower than his national 0.99% average, but Ohio has been recognized for many election cycles as a swing state, and this could contribute to the so-called “wasted vote syndrome” that causes third party candidates to generally under-perform in the Buckeye State.
