Gary Johnson Spoiler: Latest Presidential Polls Show a Third Party Disaster in the Works for Mitt RomneySubmitted by Bob-45 on Wed, 10/10/2012 - 20:32
I don’t believe anyone denies that Mitt Romney came across unexpectedly well during the first presidential debate. Also, no one can deny as a result, Mitt Romney has moved up in the polls. Gary Johnson is also moving up.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus thinks Libertarian nomineee Johnson is irrelevant; I wouldn’t expect him to say otherwise. While the party dummied-down for their pre-debate expectations, dismissing Johnson could be a dangerous proposition.
Since the swing states — Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin — are where the two major party campaigns are concentrating their efforts, that’s where I will keep the focus of this article.
