Third Party Candidates

Dubuque – For the last 164 years, Republicans and Democrats have been the only two parties to represent the White House. This election has been a big one for third parties, the Libertarian party in particular. Gary Johnson has shown an impressive rise in the polls and is certainly a popular choice for college-aged voters. In a survey from LCTV, the majority of Loras College students say they are registered as republicans; however, Hillary Clinton was their top choice for president at 30%. Gary Johnson, surprisingly came in second at 21% and Donald Trump didn’t even come close, at 14%.
