A new presidential opinion poll conducted by Pulse Opinion Research shows Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson receiving 24 percent of the nationwide vote. The poll was commissioned by the Libertarian Action Super PAC, which supports Gov. Johnson's presidential campaign. After an earlier poll commissioned by LASPAC showed Johnson with 19 percent of the nationwide vote, an outpouring of donations made this recent poll possible.
The telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters was worded as follows:
“Suppose in this year’s Presidential Election you had a choice of Libertarian Gary Johnson or Democrat Barack Obama. If the election were held today would you vote for Libertarian Gary Johnson or Democrat Barack Obama?”
