Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson finds his campaign struggling not simply to reach the 15 percent threshold in public opinion polls required for him to participate in the televised debates, but even getting listed as a candidate in many of these surveys. Residents in a few states, however, are doing their part to help fund the former two-term governor’s long-shot campaign. At the top of the list of per capita large donor contributions to Johnson’s campaign is his home state of New Mexico (at $50.60 per 1,000 residents), followed by New Hampshire ($15.38), D.C. ($13.88), Colorado ($10.89), Vermont ($10.07), Nevada ($7.27), Washington ($5.81), and Delaware ($4.84). Each of these states voted for Barack Obama in 2008.
