As local independent voter and star county fair zucchini racer sees it, Trump is not Hillary’s only worst nightmare.

In a head to head match up, Clinton will beat Trump.
However, when you throw Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson into the fray, we’re starting to see the Ralph Nader spoiler effect. Johnson continually polls about 8%. Enough to move the election either way.
When you listen to Johnson, he bashes Trump more than Clinton. This won’t pull Trump votes his way but will likely draw Clinton supporters. End result: Trump wins.
If I were a Democratic strategist, I’d forget about targeting Trump and focus on Johnson. He’s your worst nightmare.
