A new NBC/WSJ poll out this morning has Gary Johnson, in a four way race, polling at 10% nationally.
When the horserace is expanded to four candidates – including Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein – Clinton gets support from 39 percent of voters, Trump gets 38 percent, Johnson 10 percent and Stein 6 percent.
This is a jump for the former governor over the past week with polls that have been including him and Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate for President. Once Stein was being included in polls it was pulling Johnson down into single digits, but this is the first poll conducted with her that has Johnson in double digits.
This poll was conducted June 19-23, which was before, and during the CNN Town Hall that appeared on the 22nd. The numbers might not represent a good picture of post town hall reaction.
In another poll this morning by Saint Leo University, Governor is polling at 11% nationally against Trump and Clinton.
