Libertarian Gary Johnson mkes the case that the GOP is a party unraveling in the manner the Whigs did in the 1850s over slavery and nativism.
One could argue parties in general are losing their appeal, but Governor Johnson and his running mate Bill Weld do look in some, not all, aspects like a more tradition GOP ticket.
We wait now to see if the RNC made a difference. Candidate Trump made his case on Thursday, but showed in a presser on Friday te old Trump, when Mr Trump took off on a relitigation of his previous Ted Cruz disputes, buttressing the belief the candidate is too unfiltered and irrational.
The Johnson-Weld ticket needs to come up further in the polls and hope to get into those debates staged by the major parties for the major parties.
