Who in the World Is Gary Johnson -- and Why Don't You Know About Him?

John Curren, a 43-year-old insurance manager living in Richmond, V.A., believed in hope and change four years ago. That's why he voted for then-Senator Barack Obama. Four years later, he said that while he thinks President Obama had good ideas, he has been obstructed by both his own party and by Republicans. So this election season, he is not voting for Obama--but he isn't voting for Mitt Romney either.

Curren is part of a group that may be small and somewhat unknown but that is powered by its passion for the small business owner and former New Mexico governor who vetoed 750 bills, cut tax rates 14 times without raising them and left office with a $1 billion budget surplus. His name is Gary Johnson and if you didn't know -- he is running for President of the United States on the Libertarian ticket.

The fact that you may have not heard of Johnson does not make you uninformed. According to a recent report by the Pew Center for People & the Press, only a quarter of voters have -- and only 5% have heard a lot about him. However, that doesn't mean you wouldn't agree with him. The website Isidewith.com, which features a political quiz that well over 3 million people have filled it out, suggests that if the Presidential race was based on people’s beliefs, it would be between Obama and Johnson.
