Jo Jorgensen Heading Toward Second-Best Result in Libertarian Party History
With most of the Electoral College map filled out as of 9:30 a.m. ET the morning after election day, Libertarian Party (L.P.) presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen had already received the second-highest number of votes in her party’s 49-year history: 1.58 million and counting.
Jorgensen, a psychology lecturer at Clemson and 1996 running mate of L.P. stalwart Harry Browne, is currently at 1.14 percent of the national vote, a tick above the party’s second- and third-best showings: Ed Clark’s 1.06 percent in 1980, and Gary Johnson’s 0.99 percent in 2012.
With votes still being tallied and nails still being bitten in several battleground states, Jorgensen’s vote total currently exceeds the margin between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden in three states: Michigan ( 0.87 percentage points, with 90 percent of ballots counted), Wisconsin ( 0.51, with 97 percent counted), and Nevada ( 0.27, with 87 percent).
