Is Gary Johnson right?

In an interview this week, Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson said this:

HARWOOD: Is it part of your objective to do something that sets off a chain of events that busts up the two-party system as we now know it?

JOHNSON: Maybe we're there already. I mean, maybe that's going to be the consequence of what we do — at a minimum.

HARWOOD: Let's say Hillary Clinton 's elected, and you have a solid showing. Trump loses. Where does the Republican Party go after that?

JOHNSON: This is the demise of the Republican Party. This is an opportunity, I think, for the Libertarian Party to become a major party.

Is he right?

I hope so, though I'm no libertarian.
It seems to me that the best the Libertarians could ever hope for is to be an independent but necessary appendage in some coalition's multi-legged stool.
