Gov. Gary Johnson is the Libertarian Party presidential candidate for 2016 and polls have already showed him with double-digit support.
Many voters are hoping he continues to pick up support so he can participate in the presidential debates.
According to the rules set forth by the the Commission on Presidential Debates (the “CPD”) Johnson needs 15% support to qualify for the presidential debates.
With that magic number, Johnson would join Hillary Rodham Clinton of the Democratic Party and Donald Trump of the Republican Party on stage to face moderators questions.
In a recent CNN poll, only one candidate has made a gain in support since last month and it's Johnson.
He now polls at 13%.
CNN's latest numbers reveal:
"In a four-way matchup between Clinton, Trump, Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Clinton carries 42%, Trump 37%, Johnson 13% and Stein 5%."
The poll analysis adds:
"Johnson's support outpaces that of a typical third party candidate and may prove to have more staying power."

Bill Weld is Gary Johnson's running mate, Donald Trump has chosen Mike Pence as his running mate and Hillary Rodham Clinton has not yet announced who her VP candidate will be for this year's presidential race.
Should Johnson be included in the debates?
