Democratic strategist James Carville said on Sunday that he doubts voters are flocking to the Libertarian Party because of their political views.


In a radio interview with John Catsimatidis Sunday, Carville said the party is polling slightly higher in this cycle because of voter dissatisfaction with the major-party nominees, not because libertarianism is growing in popularity.

“Their general philosophy is not something that most Americans agree with,” he said. “And if they get anything above 1 to 1 and a half percent, it’ll be people protesting the two [parties] as opposed to voting libertarian, I think.”

Carville said he thinks Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary JohnsonGary Earl JohnsonState polling problematic — again Where Biden, Trump stand in key swing states Amash decides against Libertarian campaign for president MORE is “taking equally from both” parties in battleground state polling.
