"I think I'm the next president of the United States, based on the 1.9 million people who have taken the test at isidewith.com. And interestingly, I side with more Floridians and Texans than any other state."

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson is not very well known outside of his home state, but over the next couple of months the Libertarian Party presidential candidate hopes to send a strong message to the nation's political establishment by siphoning enough votes away from Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney to throw off the November general election.

"I hope that I would get labeled as a 'spoiler' from the standpoint of people actually focusing on what it is I am saying, and that this changes the way whoever wins governs," Johnson told Sunshine State News in an exclusive interview Saturday at the 2012 Ron Paul Festival.
