President Donald Trump and the RNC are picking up key supporters in the business community who did not back him as a candidate in 2016.2020 Electionsread more
"Gary Johnson seems like a pretty reasonable candidate," wrote Brown in a blog posted Sunday. "He's an actually successful business man, not a TV caricature of one. … He's actually governed people."
Brown — who is the CEO of Ritholtz Wealth Management and a regular trader panelist on CNBC's "Halftime Report" — wrote in his non-endorsement that Johnson has a real shot given that he is currently polling at 12 percent nationally and only needs to reach 15 percent to make it onto the presidential debate stage. That, coupled with the fact that his name will be on the ballot in all 50 states, means for Brown "He actually has a chance to win. It's a small chance, but it's non-zero."
"With Trump's campaign one tweet away from complete destruction and the former First Lady facing down a possible FBI indictment, all of a sudden being a third option in a presidential race with four months to go is not such a ludicrous proposition," Brown wrote, referring to the major party candidates Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.
In the post, Brown said Johnson could fill the desire of of those voters who want a fiscally conservative and socially liberal candidate, pointing to Johnson's positions on cutting military spending and pro-marijuana legalization.
