Gary Johnson At 13% In PPP New Mexico Poll 7/18


If the candidates for President this year were
Democrat Barack Obama, Republican Mitt
Romney, and Libertarian Gary Johnson, who
would you vote for?

Barack Obama....42%
Mitt Romney.... 38%
Gary Johnson... 13%
Undecided....... 6%

The bad news first, Gary Johnson is down 2% in his home state from April and is losing support among Democrats (-2%) and Republicans (-5%) over the same period. (Surprising aside, Romney has gained 10% with Democrat when Johnson is included and 9% when he is not. This has got to worry Barry and his minions a LOT).

The good news however is that the Former New Mexico Governor gained 1% with Independents to 24% and his favorability is up 2% while his negative is down 2%. In this measure, Democrats and Independents are basically unchanged from how they felt about Gary Johnson in April but his positive among Republicans is up 6 to 44% while his negative is down 7 to 34%.

For now Gary Johnson can be happy with this poll's results. A slight misstep by one or both of this opponents could result in a big jump in his numbers in New Mexico.
