Johnson, like Green Party nominee Jill Stein, wasn't invited to the event at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, because his poll numbers were too low.
"I do think that what I'm saying is representative of the majority of Americans", he told USA Today. Protesters also reached out to the Johnson campaign in which they received merchandise to hand out at the protest in addition to more information on how to reach the status of getting both Johnson and Weld into the debates, said Kelsi Forehand, a student protester.
The Institute of Politics surveyed about 60 college students across the country during the debate. He said the U.S. is responsible for 16 percent of carbon emissions worldwide but the country can't take the lead with other countries not on board.
"Let me ask you one final question, you've said you're for free markets and you're against government regulation".
Clinton's difficulty in attracting younger voters was illustrated during the Democratic primary, when Bernie Sanders mounted a serious challenge to her on the shoulders of millennial voters. "Those are the things that millennial voters care about".
But Johnson is not the first presidential candidate to dream of space travel. The Quinnipiac five-point drop was the biggest percentage-point change in any consecutive polls Johnson has seen this campaign, beating a record tied...uh, the day before by ABC News/Washington Post (which, incidentally, is one of the Big Five agencies selected by the Commission on Presidential Debates to determine eligibility; the Libertarian's average on those now stands at 7.4 percent, just under half of the required support).

Johnson and his running mate, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, answered questions from followers in a Facebook Live video broadcast from NY. Johnson grew testy when asked before the debate started whether he's running a spoiler campaign.
Weld said he expects Trump to be his usual "brisk, even flip self" but that the billionaire Republican would be wise to be somewhat restrained.
Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said that Johnson supporters were more likely to shift to Clinton than cast a protest vote after seeing Trump's lack of preparedness on foreign policy issues.
Johnson, like Stein, said he will try to get on stage for the remaining two debates. "Get them to put a third podium on that debate stage on 10/9".
