Results from a recent New York Times/CBS News poll showed that more than a third of Millennials will vote for a third party candidate – Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson or Green Party candidate Jill Stein – in November’s election instead of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

This group’s dissatisfaction with both Clinton and Trump has led another 10% to say that they won’t vote at all.

This has been criticized by many who fear a Trump win, including Sen. Bernie Sanders who has said that this year’s election is “not the year for a protest vote.” A recent exchange between Johnson and MSNBC host Chris Matthews also caused concern about Johnson’s leadership potential when he couldn’t name a single foreign leader he admires.
