The Libertarian Party's presidential nominee said in an interview early Sunday that he expects his candidacy will draw voters from both the Democratic and Republican parties.

"I don't think I'm going to be a spoiler in this," Gary Johnson said on NBC's "Meet the Press."


"I think it's a draw from both sides."

Johnson pointed to three national polls in which he attracted about 10 percent of the vote.

"In those polls, they did a bit of analysis and actually determined that I took more votes away from Hillary," he said.

"But at the end of the day, I think it's going to be a draw from both sides."

In the match-up, Clinton leads Trump by 2.4 points.

Johnson also dodged a question about whether he hopes his candidacy's impact will help elect Trump or Clinton.

"I would not be doing this if there weren't the opportunity to win," he said. 

"A successful candidacy would be talking about issues that aren't being talked about right now, and that unique combination of being fiscally conservative, smaller government and individual liberty and freedom, a person's right to choose."

He said he's the only third-party candidate that is going to be on the ballot on all 50 states.

"So all this talk about the third party, well, I'm the answer," he said.
