The candidates offered by the two major political parties were hated, so libertarians thought 2016 was their big chance. It didn't turn out that way. Still, Nicholas Sarwark, Chairman of the Libertarian Party, says it was a great success. "We tripled all previous records. In the 45-year history of the Libertarian Party, we've never had that kind of support from the electorate." Johnson only got 3.5% of the vote. John Stossel asks, "is that really winning?" "We're growing, and they're dying," answers Sarwark. "Voter registration identity with Republicans and Democrats is dropping. Voter registration identity with Libertarians is the only party that's growing." The fight isn't easy. Republicans and Democrats try to keep Libertarians off the ballot. But Sarwark says the plan for this year's midterm elections is "to be on the ballot in all 50 states. We'll definitely be on the ballot in all 50 states in 2020." Gary Johnson helped the Libertarian Party get on ballots. "But it's not about any particular candidate" says Sarwark. "That's the real difference between the Libertarian Party and, say, Ross Perot. When Ross Perot gets tired of running for office, there's nothing there anymore." Stossel talks to Sarwark about what we can learn from the last election, and what the future holds for libertarians and the Libertarian Party.
