The result of the 2016 US presidential election would’ve been completely different had the independents not split the vote. With only the addition of the votes in favor of Gary Johnson with those of Hillary Clinton, she would have won 308 electoral college votes. Gary Johnson is infamous for his response to the question on CNN about how he would solve the issue of Aleppo by asking “what is Aleppo?” The results in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin would’ve gone to Clinton instead of Trump.
Johnson’s aim was to make history. He did.
