LASPAC: Gary Johnson gets 19% in nationwide poll

The Libertarian Action Super PAC (LASPAC) sent the appeal below:

We just conducted a nationwide telephone poll of registered voters. Here’s what the poll sounded like:


The results:
Barack Obama 56%
Gary Johnson 19%
Undecided/neither 25%

You may be thinking, “Why does that matter, since it doesn’t include the Republican?”

Here’s why it matters:

Gallup has been conducting presidential polls just like this:

Note the wording of their question:
“Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party’s candidate and Mitt Romney were the Republican Party’s candidate, who would you vote for, Barack Obama, the Democrat or Mitt Romney, the Republican?”

It includes the incumbent, Obama, plus one selected challenger, Romney — and no one else.

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

Vote "NO" on Gary Johnson ...

Not only does he not line up with our good Doctor on foreign policy, he thinks killing defenseless unborn babies is a "civil liberty."

Gary Johnson is a very confused and immoral man. I would hope that NONE of Dr. Paul's supporters would vote for Johnson. He's not fit to be compared to Dr. Paul in any way whatsoever.

And add to that...

His conflicting statements on the FED being eliminated or not, his past statements to a group of high school kids that drugs are cool (not to be confused with Ron's position that drugs are in fact stupid but should nonetheless be decriminalized), his constant flip flopping on foreign policy, abortion, and gay marriage.

I have personally met Gary. He is a very nice guy...However, his candidacy is a joke.

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

Wow. So you are even smarter than Ron Paul! ALL HAIL YOU!!!

Maybe YOUR POST is the joke.

“I guess the best one would be Johnson from New Mexico — Gary Johnson.”

To the contrary...

I wish I were half as smart as Dr. Paul. However, the above statement by Ron was not an endorsement. Thinking about the three people above that Ron has endorsed and supported for President...it should be quite clear Johnson does not make the cut.

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

I wish you were half as smart as Ron Paul too. I'd even settle

for you being 1/1,000,000th as smart as Ron Paul.

Then I wouldn't have to read your ridiculous drivel claiming to know his views better than HE does.


Let's stop this madness.

We're all liberty-lovers here. We pretty much all agree that Ron Paul is our first choice. So like has already been said, let's wait for Tampa.

Maybe Romney will implode before then... I'm not holding my breath, but we just don't know. What we do know is that the establishment is hell-bent on ramming Robotney down our throats. If, God forbid, it comes to pass, then we can start having a debate on what the "next best thing" is.

Until then, we're just pissing each other off for no good reason.

Could the SS Romney be getting ready to sail away?

I think you need to do your homework.

Bob necon Barr is a piece of shit and always will be. You keep on telling people google him, I know what this guy is. When he was in congress he voted for the patriot act, voted for war, voted for DOMA, and was a real jerk. Gary also has a real record as Governor NM. His record was to use his veto pen more than all the governors, went from 1 billion in the hole too 1 billion in the surplus during his 8 years, and protecting civil liberties during his 8 years.

Gary is No Ron Paul but he is pretty darn close and LOT better than the other 2 tyrants. How dear you say Gary Johnson is equal to Bob neocon Barr it shows how uneducated you are!


BothJ and Barr are statists that pander to different faces of the political spectrum. They agree with basic over all philosophies each other has.

It has been PROVEN~ OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER again, there is only 1 real change and only 1 has the right philosophies on 100% of the major issues.

Rand Paul 2016

you saying it over and over

you saying it over and over again doesn't make it true. bottom line Gary is a viable option over obamney if ron paul is not an option. You do not lik gary we get it. Then vote obamney if ron paul is not an option. write in god if that makes you happy but your constant gary attacks tells me your no different then the bushies and one of those people that makes folks hate the gop.

Ron Paul 2016

Gary is not viable and he is

Gary is not viable and he is certainly not an option for anyone who remains opposed to foreign military intervention.

Gj has no chance and will NOT be on all the ballots no matter what you believe youve been told

He has no support and no organization, why do you think he wants Pauls supporters?

Ron Paul 2016

Go ahead and leave then don't just threaten

Further evidence that people like YOU are driving away supporters here because you lack discretion and timing.This is becoming more prevalent here because of the constant spamming of GJ here. Wait until after Tampa.

An Honest Poll

Oh, it's nice to see they're finally putting Obama and Romney on the same ticket in the polls.

I keep telling people if you REALLY want to win the election, but Obama and Romney on the same ticket so we can win over the rest of the "moderates." lol.

the gary haters are the worst

the gary haters are the worst gop'ers. They are the ones alienating their own ron paul supporters and they think attacking us is building their movement. lmfao

I think what's being measured

are not people who like, identify with, or plan to vote for Gary Johnson. If more than one percent of respondents even have any idea who he is I'd be amazed. What's being measured are people who, when presented a binary choice that includes Barrack Obama, are determined to vote for anyone but Obama. I think Donald Duck might score as high or higher than Gary Johnson because more respondents like him.

If Paul is not on the ballot I will no doubt vote for Johnson, extending my 3-decade trend of voting Libertarian, but that doesn't mean I'll get excited about a meaningless survey like this.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

thanks for posting

“Why does that matter, since

“Why does that matter, since it doesn’t include the Republican?”
Even if the poll had Mitt Romney, it still wouldn't include a Republican :)

This infighting for Johnson or against Johnson

can wait until after the convention. Right now. Ron Paul is still in the race. Have you forgotten? Until the time he is not. I am for Ron Paul! I will never vote for Romney or Obama. They are the same. Wake up again people. Remember who stole this. Could you really reward a cheater? After the convention. There will be open discussion on here you better believe it. It happened in 2008. And if Nothing good happens in Tampa it will I promise happen again. We are within a few weeks from this convention friends. Let's remain united. Then unite again after. We can show everyone we have power this time. I think we all know this. They know it and are hoping we tear each other apart. Lets wait and join each other here and take this country back to liberty!

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Ron Paul is NOT still in the race. He said himself he will NOT

be the nominee.

Accept it and move on with your life.
