Gary Johnson Drops Below One Percent In Popular Vote


ALBUQUERQUE – As absentee ballots and late returns continue to trickle in, it appears that Gary Johnson may not crack one percent after all. The latest unofficial national popular vote returns show that the Libertarian Party candidate now has only 0.9 percent of the popular vote.

Votes are still being counted, so there's a possibility Johnson could creep past one percent before the final vote count is certified in the coming weeks.

At time of publishing Johnson's uncertified popular vote total was 1,139,562.

Johnson's campaign said they expect the vote totals to change over time.

"We'll just have to watch," said Joe Hunter, Johnson's communication director.
