Progressives do a lousy job of explaining to Reason TV’s, Nick Gillespie, why Libertarians should vote for Hillary Clinton. This is by far the worst yet especially since these people are old enough to have the answer; and the fact that they are unable to explain why Hillary Clinton deserves to be president speaks volumes.
With the growing dissatisfaction of the two-party system, more and more Americans are ditching their party identification and turning independent. A 2015 Gallup Governance survey found that 27 percent of the electorate can be characterized as libertarian—outnumbering conservatives (26 percent) and liberals (23 percent).
This makes them a highly coveted voting bloc, and one that Hillary Clinton needs to win over in order to prevent a Donald Trump presidency.
Reason editor-in-chief Nick Gillespie found delegates at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA to see if they could convince him why libertarians should vote for Clinton in November or if they’re better off with a third option.
