POLL: Sarwark Favorite LNC Chair Candidate

This poll was conducted by 134 of currently 312 members of the Libertarian Vindicator Polling Committee, a group that aims to have 10 libertarians, both party members and non-party members, from each state, including the District of Columbia, for a total of 510 members that seeks to create representative data of libertarians across the United States. The poll was conducted using


Nicholas Sarwark, current Chairman of the Libertarian party, lead the Libertarian Vindicator’s first published Chairman candidate poll with 47.01% of the vote, only 19% ahead of Washington Libertarian, Joshua Smith who got 28.36%. What could be the deciding factor at the 2018 convention is who can convince the 24.63% who voted “none of the above” to vote for them. Should Smith be able to convince the majority of these libertarians, he could win the Chairman election by a slim margin.

  • Of the following candidates for Chairman of the Libertarian Party, who would you vote for?
    • Nicholas Sarwark, 47.01%
    • Joshua Smith, 28.36%
    • None of the above, 24.63%

Since joining the Libertarian Party in 2016 (after discovering Gary Johnson as a disaffected Bernie Sanders supporter), Luke Henderson has been active in the liberty movement through journalism, and political activism. At the beginning of 2017, Luke had his first piece of writing published by Being Libertarian and quickly became a contributor to the libertarian news site, The Libertarian Vindicator. Through the Vindicator, Luke discovered his passion for addressing critics of the philosophy and bringing together different factions of liberty lovers which compelled him to become an editor for The Libertarian Coalition, a forum dedicated to an open-minded discussion of libertarian ideas from all walks. After many guest contributions to Being Libertarian, Luke was asked to join the website as a contributor, where he writes his column Scoring For Liberty, which discusses sports, politics, and economics from a libertarian lens, and his Educator series that seeks to strengthen libertarian’s understanding of educational techniques and policy to better arguments against public education. Luke is one of the District 1 Executive Committeemen for the Missouri Libertarian party, and the founder of the Missouri Chapter of the Libertarian Positivity Caucus. Outside of politics, Luke is a paraprofessional for the Special School District of St. Louis, a musician, composer, and a loving husband and father.

  1. Mr. Smith is a joke! He cannot hold a job, housing and is in debt. Obviously, he is unstable with his own life; why would I want to vote for that?
