"upfront." plus, the iraq war veteran making his first run for congress. and, disturbing reports about care at the wisconsin home for veterans. what state officials are doing about it. covering the issues important to wisconsin. this is "upfront with mike gousha." mike: hello again, everyone, and welcome to "upfront." is this the year for a third party presidenti candidate? we begin today with the libertarian nominee, former new mexico governor gary johnson. johnson campaigned in milwaukee on thursday night, drawing more than 1000 people to serb hall. he's also running radio ads in the state. johnson is currently at 11% in the latest marquette law school poll. that is among registered voters. in an interview late last week, i asked him about his impact on the race for president. mr.
11:54 pm
think we might actually win the race. mike: you are serious about that. he said it's a crazy election year, crazy enough that i'm going to be elected president. you think that could happen. mr. johnson: i do. trump and clinton are so polarizing. as a third choice, two former republican governors that served two terms each and were fiscally conservative and socially liberal. it has great appeal. mike: you need 15% in the major national polls to get into the debate. are you running out of time? mr. johnson: the clock keeps ticking. the polls are ratcheting up. we just, one week ago, started spending money. wisconsin being one of the states where we are spending money to actually advertise. maybe, maybe not. it is close. mike: it is close. right
11:55 pm
johnson: the five poles of the presidential debates commission has a notified were right at 10%. mike: for people who are still thinking about where they want to land in this president election, for people who say i cannot vote for donald trump, but i still think i am a republican, what do you offer them? mr. johnson: honesty, telling the truth, keeping your word. i think the unforgivable in life is hypocrisy. saying one bill weld and myself are not hypocrites. we did make a difference interstates. we aligned philosophically with most americans. speaking broadly, that is being fiscally conservative, small government, lower taxes. that is being socially inclusive. always coming down on the side of you and i being able to make choices in our own lives, always, as long as
11:56 pm
think that the majority of americans are skeptical that when it comes to our military interventions, that the world is anymore safe as a result of those interventions. we are the only candidates that do believe in free trade. believing that it will result in more u.s. jobs, not less u.s. jobs. and that we do have some issues globally. but we need to join diplomatically, specifically with russia, to specifically, we need to join hands with china to deal with north korea. mike: i want to pick up on some of those points. let's talk about trade. you are in the state were there people in wisconsin the believe free trade has not been a good thing for wisconsin workers. at the wisconsin worker has suffered. the manufacturing jobs have moved out of this country. how do you sell what you are talking about to a fair number of people who are very skeptical of free-
11:57 pm
pointed out is most of america right now. that associates crony capitalism, which is bad, government interference, government picking winners and losers. and equating crony capitalism and free trade as one in the same. when in fact, their opposites. that's an education that needs to take place. free-trade, devoid of government influence, devoid of government picking really, the aversion that we have to these trade agreements is that they are laced with favoritism. that individuals, groups have paid for that favoritism, giving them more influence and more money, as opposed to equal opportunities. mike: immigration, think i saw you and governor weld a forum where you said we are about as pro-
11:58 pm
johnson: the wharton school of business three weeks ago came out with an analysis of immigration. restricting immigration will have a negative impact on the economy. allowing for high skilled workers to come into this country would have a small positive impact on our company. but increasing immigration would actually have a very positive impact on our economy. i thinkt country. we are a country of immigrants. we should make it as easy as possible for somebody who wants to come into this country and work to be able to get a work visa. and they work visa should entail a background check and assist security card that of legal taxes get paid. 11 million undocumented workers in this country, a great misunderstanding on why that exists in the first place. it exists because the government has made it impossible to
11:59 pm
u.s. citizens don't want, and because of that, if you or i were in the same situation, we would be doing the same thing to benefit our families. workers coming across the border from mexico, the cream of the crop when it comes to workers. hard-working individuals. undocumented workers go back 20, 30 years in this country. if we were to deport 11 million undocumented workers, it catastrophe. building a wall across the border is crazy. i'm speaking as a border governor. mike: you can see my entire interview with libertarian presidential candidate gary johnson on our web site. i'll ask him about his views on marijuana use and legalization. you'll find it in the "upfront" section of later in our program -- troubling allegations about care at the state veteran's home in
