Gary Johnson Averaging 10.2% in the Five Polls Necessary to Participate in the Presidential Debates

The Commission on Presidential Debates released last week the 5 polls they will use to determine the who will be admitted into the fall Presidential debates.

Here at the Libertarian Vindicator, we have started to track these 5 polls in order to keep up on the fight to be included in the debates. Currently, Gary Johnson is averaging 10.2% in the 5 polls being used by the CPD.

ABC-Washington Post 8
CBS-New York Times 12
CNN-Opinion Research  9
Fox News 12
NBC-WSJ 10
Average 10.2

As each of these polls is updated we will change the average and keep you all in the loop.

This is a fight that is worth fighting for. The American people are crying out for a third option and the elitist powers will do everything they can to stop that from happening.

    I don’t understand why 10% isn’t the break point. Oh yeah, cause then the elitists couldn’t keep out the competition 😱

    The only people who are voting in these polls are old school, hardcore Dems & Reps or he would be much higher.

    If the lp is to grow and introduce purer libertarian philosophy we must get nationally recognized. Presidential debates is only a start. Local, state, and congrssional elections must follow. Going forward purist libertarians will be able run and hopefully understood and accepted as viable options.

    Gary needs to be in the debates and well prepared. The prize still is the presidency and the future is a major side effect.

    Awe, so the media controls whom can participate in the presidential debates. Who owns the media? Just asking…

    15% is so draconian that in European democracies the standard is always 5% of the polling. Even here if a party could win 5% of the popular vote that party becomes a major party. So ask me this, why the rigged CPD can’t lower the bar and make it 5%. Johnson is as far as I’m concerned is more than qualified to be at the debates.

    Can you verify the CBS/NYT poll numbers? Last I saw it was 10%.

        Just checked this more closely at RCP. The last “CBS/NYT” poll was July 12 and came in at 12%. There have also been more recent plain “CBS News” polls, the latest was July 31 and came in at 10%. I gather that these don’t count. It must be a full “CBS/NYT” poll.

    Fox News gave a poll Aug 28-30 which showed Johnson at 9%… this puts the new average at 9.6%
