Senior writer Mark Hemingway discussed Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson's role in 2016 on Fox Business Friday.

"Gary Johnson could absolutely be the deciding factor in this election," he said, adding that Johnson is targeting disaffected Democrats more than Libertarian party candidates in the past have done.

Hemingway also noted that Johnson regularly says he agrees with Bernie Sanders 75 percent of the time. "Libertarianism is supposed to be the exact opposite of socialism."
