â€œI donâ€™t think either Obama or Romney are offering up solutions to the problems that the country faces,â€ Johnson said. â€œI think that the Libertarian Party really embraces the best of what we really care about. â€¦ I think the majority of Americans consider themselves fiscally responsible and socially tolerant. Thatâ€™s the Libertarian Party and what they stand for.â€
Getting on the debate stage would also allow Johnsonâ€™s campaign to lure million of dollars in campaign contributions that will be needed to keep his campaign competitive, he said.
Johnson says at least one national poll reports his campaign winning support of about 8 percent of voters across the U.S., just over half the number required to appear in most of the national televised presidential debates.
