Gary Johnson at 12% in New National Poll; Closing in on the Debate Stage

One of the things we find interesting is that media across this country don’t really pay attention to the polling done by the Morning Consult.  When you look at the details in the poll, they are polling more people and have lower margin of error’s.  So to a degree Johnson could be polling closer to 14% which puts him even closer to the 15% threshold needed to be in the Presidential debates.

The other thing to note about Governor Johnson’s numbers is he is still taking away from Trump and Clinton evenly, 3% from Clinton and 4% from Trump. The undecided vote is also a key target for the Johnson campaign as they push further towards showcasing his credibility and likeability for voters.

      1. Tell that to all the corporations that put HQ in Ireland to avoid paying taxes here. You make 0 logical sense.


    2. Err. In his early life, Johnson started a business. Grew it till he got rich enough for his other life purposes and sold it.


    3. Starting a one man handyman business in NM and building it into an over 1,000 employee company is no small feat! You had better due your due diligence next time before running your piehole
