Gary Johnson Spoiler: Latest Presidential Polls Show a Third Party Disaster in the Works for Mitt RomneySubmitted by Ian56 on Wed, 10/10/2012 - 16:15
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?
