Gary Johnson: Obama Will Win Reelection

Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson says he thinks President Barack Obama will defeat Mitt Romney to win a second term this evening.

“I think Obama’s going to win, that’s what I think,” Johnson said.

As for his own support, the former New Mexico Governor said: “[My vote is] really spread out ... I don’t think there’s any state I’m going to do better in than another.”

Johnson, who’s on the ballot in 48 states and D.C., hovers in the low single digits in the polls. Still, he says he has no regrets at how things played out.

“There’s nothing,” Johnson said. “I would ask that everybody look at it and maybe recognize that this is phenomenal that we spent $2 million and may get 5 percent."

"Maybe it doesn’t turn out that way at all - but we spent $2 million bucks and here we are playing in a game that by all accounts we should not be playing in."

A CNN Ohio poll released Friday had President Obama, a Democrat, at 47 percent, Republican nominee Romney at 44 percent and Gary Johnson at 5 percent.

It doesn’t make much of a difference which of the major-party candidates wins, Johnson said, citing a list of similarities he sees between Obama and Romney’s policies.
