Even as the media elites try to bring down the candidacy of Gary Johnson through their tactics both on camera and in the way they conduct their polling, the former Governor has reached a new high in the Real Clear Politics average of national polling.
With the addition of new polls, including the ABC/Washington Post poll (which is one of the big 5), the new average for Governor Johnson is now at a high of 9.3%.
It has been an uphill battle for the Johnson campaign as they try to break new thresholds in polling. The two party duopoly has done everything they can to bring his poll numbers down through the way they conduct the poll or the way they ask the questions.
Right now it looks like Governor Johnson will not make it into the first debate based on recent poll numbers, but with his advertising blitz on t.v., it can be assumed that he will reach the numbers he needs to be invited to the other debates in October.
