Is Johnson going to almost totally collapse nationally?

We want him below 5%. He seems like he's a complete dufus. I can't imagine people wanting to throw their vote away on Mr. Aleppo.

1. It's over when Weld splits

and it looks like he's got more than one foot out the door.

2. Johnson is not a serious candidate in any way.

His poll results reflect people's dissatisfaction with the two major party candidates. It's very likely that many who have stated their preference for Johnson will vote for one of the major party candidates in November.

His recent failures to perform are going to leave a lot of those who claim to support him limp, I think.

"I'm having an Aleppo moment..." is not a strong campaign message.

3. Chris Matthews, after the Town Hall,

said that Weld looked like he was trying to physically distance himself from Johnson.

5. I don't get it.

As I recall, William Weld was appointed by President (Bill) Clinton to be ambassador to Mexico. That appointment was torpedoed by conservative Republicans in the Senate.

So why would he want to oppose the Clintons, and in any way help conservative Republicans?

Unless he planned this all from the start: become Libertarian VP, wait until mid or late October, hold a press conference endorsing Hillary.

In which case I'd say the former Massachusetts governor is one steely-eyed missile man for sure.

4. He won't end up with 5%. Stein less than 1%. The rest of the third party people, less than 2%

 

Trump is stuck at about 41% at the highest.

Maybe.

7. He would be regarded by many as a hero if he just deleted his campaign.
