Gary Johnson Spoiler: Latest Presidential Polls Show a Third Party Disaster in the Works for Mitt Romney

http://www.policymic.com/articles/16114/gary-johnson-spoiler...

Priebus lying his ass off as usual saying Gary Johnson isn't a factor, trying not to become a total laughing stock.

Colorado – Latest polls show Johnson with 5%. Obama leads Romney by 0.2%. Ron Paul received 12% in the GOP primary.

Florida – Polls in Florida have yet to include Johnson, but the two major party candidates are tied. Paul received 7% in the primary.

Iowa – As in Florida, there are no polling numbers for Johnson. The president leads Romney by 3.2%. Paul captured 21% of the caucus votes.

Nevada — Latest poll has Johnson with 3%. Here too, Obama leads Romney by 4.6%.Paul took 19% of the caucus vote.

New Hampshire – Johnson is pulling 7% in the Granite State. Obama is leading Romney by 6% and Paul won 23% of the primary vote.

North Carolina – Romney leads Obama by 0.8%. Paul took 11% in the GOP primary.

Ohio – In the latest polls, Johnson received 10.6% support. The president has a 3% lead. Since Paul took 9% during the primary, Johnson could already have captured that support. But then again, maybe not.

Virginia – Latest poll has 4% supporting Johnson. The president has a 0.3% lead. The GOP Virginia primary ballot had two candidates, Romney and Paul. Paul took 40%.

Wisconsin – Johnson is winning the support of 6% of the voters. Here, the president is leading by 6.6%. Paul took 11% during the primary.

Nationally, when his name is included, Johnson is polling between 4% to 6%. Paul’s numbers are significant in that even though Romney is gaining support, it is unknown how Paul supporters, probably the most likely to vote for Johnson, will end up casting their ballots. But Johnson is also pulling support from the president. Now that Johnson is being included in some polls, his name is becoming known. If the president continues his poor showing in the debates another unknown develops. Will more Democrats vote for Johnson?

I think it would be wonderful if somehow the entire corrupt . .

system crashed itself and dashed the hopes of the RNC and DNC--

and their managers--

Don't care for GJ, but I think that it would be really good if the states ended up taking back their power--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

ecorob's picture

its not gd gitmo gary...

Its the RP folks that are making an impact but OHSHAT, we can't let people believe that, OH NO, its Gitmo Gary that will cause Romney to lose

Give me a freakin break...are all you gitmo Gary followers THAT ignorant?

The truth is, RON Paul is the reason but the ptb need to stop that train!

Sheep...baaabaaabaaa

Forget RP, right?

You killing 2016 right now with gitmo Gary and you don.t even know it...

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

Oh, need a little negativity

Oh, need a little negativity and division? No worries, here comes erroneous-rob. Get over it. Everybody, GJ included, knows that RP is the reason for this. Now excuse me, I have to get back to the liberty flock. Baaaaaaa

how so?

I have voted third party in every general election for the last 20 years. Ron Paul was the only reason I paid any attention at all to the GOP for the last 5 years. Right now, on the Virginia ballot, I will have 5 choices, with no opportunity for a write-in: Romney, Obama, Johnson, Goode and Stein. Of those 5, Johnson is clearly the closest match for me.

What the hell do you expect me to do at this point? What possible benefit could I derive from voting for anyone but Johnson? I've voted Libertarian many times in the past, why not now? I'm not staying home. I will support Ron Paul any chance I get in the future, but right now I don't have that option on my ballot. Johnson certainly has his flaws, but he's no Bob Barr.

I support Ron Pauls policies

I support ending the neocon wars.
I support ending the Fed.
I support reducing the debt and balancing the budget.
I support restoring the Constitution.

Right now Ron Paul isn't getting mentioned.
So right now Gary Johnson is the best we've got in terms of publicity and raising public awareness.

Even the Dems are suggesting raising Gary Johnson awareness to kill off Romney.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

"Even the Dems are suggesting

"Even the Dems are suggesting raising Gary Johnson awareness to kill off Romney."

If that doesn't prove the "broken clock right twice a day" maxim, nothing does... :)

But, and that is the question; do the dems have the strength of conviction to lend the GJ campaign some of their considerable resources? Let's get together and circle ole Mittens....
