It’s that time of year again, folks. With the 2024 Presidential primary season kicking off in earnest, the political odds are finally even. The
2020 Presidential Election Update (11/4): Jo Jorgensen, the LP candidate, got about 1.1% of the total national vote in the 2020 election. However, she siphoned off enough Republican votes in certain swing states to assist presumptive winner Joe Biden in likely taking the White House.
Wagering on political election outcomes in the United States has attracted a lot of attention over the past few years. Although a Libertarian has yet to be elected to a significant office in the USA, they have become the most viable third party in politics today, typically receiving the third-highest number of votes among election candidates.
Current President Donald J. Trump was a heavy underdog in the 2016 Presidential election, and many made a lot of money on his low odds. Perhaps it was that payout and the following four years of wild political developments that have drawn so much attention to election betting. Now, more than ever, voters and bettors alike must carefully consider each candidate that is running for office, as anything is possible.

The Libertarian candidate for President in 2020 was Jo Jorgensen, who has been involved in Libertarian politics since the early 1990s.

The 2024 Libertarian Convention is expected to occur in late May of 2024, at which time their official Presidential and VP nominees will be announced.
Libertarian candidate 2024 odds are not available at top political sportsbooks at the moment, but that could change if their nominee can somehow gain momentum via the national political spotlight. Since Libertarian candidates are rarely invited to the Presidential Debates, it is difficult for their party to gain an edge at ballot boxes.
In fact, the leading Libertarian candidate for POTUS’s chances of becoming the next President of the United States are typically much less than politicians and celebrities that are not currently running for election. That is because certain individuals have the potential to replace the current candidate in the case of an unforeseen dropout or death.
Unlike other political parties, Libertarian Presidential candidates do not select their VP running mates. Instead, the Libertarian Vice Presidential candidate is selected during the Libertarian Primary process in a similar manner to how the Presidential candidate is chosen.

As long as the United States practices and promotes two party politics, it is not likely that a Libertarian candidate will become President. The most probable scenario for a Libertarian candidate to attain the Oval Office would be for a popular Democratic or Republican candidate to change parties and run as a Libertarian.
No, a Libertarian party member has never been elected as the President of the United States.
Yes, two Libertarians have received a single electoral college vote during the Presidential election cycle. John Hospers received a vote in 1972, and Ron Paul received a vote in 2016.
Not yet, but we expect a gaggle of canddiates to toss their hat in the ring in the very near future.
Libertarian values lean right (conservatively) on fiscal issues but tend to lean left (liberally) on social issues. In addition, there are right and left leaning factions of Libertarian ideologies.
