WOW Gary Johnson polling 10.6% in Ohio (was 4.5%)

Liberty Patriots!

The MSM (mainstream media) is telling us there are only two candidates for the job of the president of the United States -- this new poll out of Ohio shows the nation that there are in fact three people who have a chance to become the next POTUS -- not just two.

I urge everyone to send this link to Drudge Report and to spread the word on social sites like Facebook Twitter etc.

Activism activism activism!

Call the Commission on Presidential Debates at 202-872-1020. Tell them you want to see Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson in the televised debates!

Latest Ohio poll:

If the Presidential election was held today and the candidates were Democrat Barack Obama, Republican Mitt Romney, and Libertarian Gary Johnson, for whom would you vote?

• Barack Obama 44.5% {46.47%}
• Mitt Romney 37.8% {42.39%}
• Gary Johnson 10.6% {4.5%}
• Other/Unsure 7.1%

I understand what you

I understand what you mean....

I think you are comparing two extremes. Slogan and philosophy.

No one but Paul is a conviction, a principal....not a reason for living. No one but Paul is having the guts to stand up and make a statement, even if it fails or crashes and burns....having the fortitude to stand up to the establishment and not bluff at your intentions.

And I understand where you're coming from, but....

...if we want to actually influence politics there has to be a compromise of principle and practical considerations. I know that's blasphemy around here, but it's the truth, like it or not.

The question I ask myself is: who would most advance the cause of liberty? The answer IMO is Johnson, so he gets my vote. If I thought voting Ron Paul would advance the cause more than voting Johnson, that's what I'd do, but I don't, so I won't - much as it would please me personally to cast another ballot for the good doctor.

If RP ever compromised his

If RP ever compromised his principals....how would you feel about him?

So you have to play along to get along...is that what you are saying? Correct me if I am misinterpreting you.

Its only blasphemy on here now bc too many ppl have overrun this site and made it sound just like the GOP was talking to us for the past many, many years...

it's politics

Right, as some purists here need to grow up and learn how to play politics.

The fact is that Ron Paul is no longer in the race and Gary Johnson is in the race with ballot access.

grow up and learn how to play

grow up and learn how to play politics??

I think a few Rmoney ppl told us that before......

Elections are rigged.

Elections are rigged.

I do not believe GJ will not

I do not believe GJ will not get more than 5% of the popular vote....and ZERO of the electoral college.

RP will get more in write-ins, Im imagining ~9%.

9% as a write-in without any campaign to make it happen?

Nuts.

If RP was actively campaigning, I'd lean that way, but without even trying? No way.

GJ polling nationally at 6.7%

Maybe you're right about Ron Paul but he's not on enough state ballots to conceivably win the nomination.

You mean the presidency. The nomination is already

decided.

Bump

For a 3rd party in the debates!

My entire family in Ohio is voting Johnson.

Wow

...that's really impressive.

Real Clear Politics is reporting this poll, except...surprise surprise....they only cite the results for Mittbama, no mention of Johnson. You'd think that a third party pulling double digits in a key battleground State just weeks before the election would be newsworthy, but apparently not.

I happen to be one of those

I happen to be one of those 10.6 percent in Ohio that will be voting Gary Johnson. But most of the people I talk to around here when I mention I am voting for Gary Johnson, they say who's that. I hope he gets in the debates but I have a feeling it won't happen and the two cronies will do anything they can to prevent it.

GJ is starting to go viral

One YouTube video with say 100 million views and GJ is the front-runner & the 2 Goldman Sachs candidates he campaigns against become Dukakis type jokes.

While gary johnson's campaign is running in on debt

"Johnson also refused to answer the question as to why he's paying out hundreds of thousands to political consultants and advisors but has barely spent 1000 dollars on actual ads getting out his message"

I hear people saying that gary johnson is ducking this question, has he answered this question anywhere?

Umm...

Miguel,

Sounds a lot like a straw man argument. You don't have an answer to a question, so you set up an evil straw man and knock him down in your last line.

If you google, "Gary Johnson ducking question", the only response you get is your posting above.

So who are the people saying that Gary Johnson is ducking this question?

GJ got lots of money this month

He has to fight Romney lawyers Romney team with unlimited amounts of money -- are you a Romney lawyer here?

Reading your comments: People like you is what is wrong in America.

Why don't you just come out and say openly you want Romney to win?
Why hide behind a Ron Paul name?

People...

PLEASE don't waste your vote and your money on that corrupt fraud Gary CFR Johnson. Just write in Ron Paul. Anyone who can spend freely on hiring political advisors but won't spend on ads or balance their campaign budget is suspicious as far as I'm concerned.

I don't play, I commission the league.

those write in votes will be

those write in votes will be thrown away at the box. gauranteed.

What is just as important is Gary Johnson's effect on Romney

Romney's numbers will sink like a stone if Johnson gets into the debates. Even without the debates, Johnson's numbers will increase dramatically, as Obama will NOT be the recipient of future Romney blunders.

True

But if he gets in the debates the Presidents numbers will drop as well.

The Reds and Blues

About a week ago I heard or read somewhere that GJ is/was polling at 17% in West Virginia (a more Blue than Red state).

This poll has him at 10.6 in Ohio (eastern Ohio is fairly Blue).

Now, in the middle of those 2 states lies south-west Pennsylvania. Historically blue. The bluest of the blue. Democrats outnumber Republicans 4:1. So blue are those 6 counties or so, that most of them have not elected a Republican for President in nearly 100 years.

Johnson was elected Governor, twice, in a state that votes 3:1 Democrat.

Instead of Romney trying to remove Johnson from the ballot in PA he should have one of his PAC's pepper Pittsburgh (and Philly) area with Johnson radio and tv spots highlighting Johnsons social positions. Everything but Philly and the `burgh are Red and his for the taking.

If Ohio is 10% and WV is 17% then SwPA has to be at least 12%. With the voter ratio 4:1 Democrat, odds are 8 or 9 of that 12% are Democrats. Romney could win PA with Johnson in the race. Hell, Romney would be leading right now, if this were a 3-way race.

What the poll above shows me is Democrats are doing a better job selling Johnson to Republicans, than Republicans are doing selling Johnson to Democrats. Obama dropped 2.5 points. Romney dropped 4 points.

Ah, but there's a fatal flaw in your reasoning....

...keeping Americans in ignorance about the important issues is more important to Romney and his backers (see: Obama's backers) than which of the shills wins the election. That is, I have no doubt Romney & Co. would rather lose the election than let Gary Johnson win a significant portion of the vote, because that would lend credibility to his (aka libertarian) ideas.
