New JZ Analytics Poll - Gary Johnson At 5.3% Nationally
Democrat Barack Obama .....43.6%
Republican Mitt Romney.....38.0%
Libertarian Gary Johnson....5.3%
According to the poll Gary Johnson pulls more away from Mittens (4.1%) than he does from Barry (1.3%). Most polls where the former New Mexico Governor has been included generally showed that Johnson pulled equally from both, within 1%, so maybe this means that people are waking up to the fact that the Mittster is a horrible choice and is Obama-lite when it comes to most issues.
While this is down from the 7% Gary Johnson was pulling in a March PPP poll, he is still pleased, as he told Capitol Report New Mexico. "It’s all good, from our vantage point a lot more money is coming in. If people get the notion that I could win, that could be a game-changer. We’re not there yet, I’m not saying that, but these numbers are encouraging."
What Gary Johnson needs right now is money and exposure. It's encouraging to hear that a generous Libertarian supporter has recently donated $1 Million to a GJ2012 Super Pac but more is needed.
One way you can help is by participating in the #BlackoutCNN Twitter Bomb on Monday July 16th to @CNN, @CNNPolitics and @CNNBRK urging CNN to give Gary Johnson fair coverage.
The more people that hear about Gary Johnson, the better his chance to be included in the polls and hit the 15% mark that he needs to get into the national debates.
