Gravis Marketing/Capitol Correspondent Ohio Poll. Among likely Ohio voters he is up over 6% from the last Gravis poll just 2 weeks ago.
This is stunning news since the conventional wisdom is that 3rd party candidates start to sink in the polls as the election draws closer.
Q If the Presidential election were held today and the candidates were Democrat Barack Obama, Republican Mitt Romney and Libertarian Gary Johnson, whom? would you vote?
Certainly, this poll is going to cause some sleepless nights for the Romney campaign, that's for sure. Not only is Governor Johnson over 10% in a key swing state but his inclusion in the poll dropped the former Massachusetts Governor from a deficit of less than 1%, in a head-to-head matchup against the President, to a nearly 7% gap.
The American people are starting to wake up, especially the fiscally conservative, pro-liberty Republicans. They are realizing that Milquetoast Mitt isn't much different on most policy than Obama and they see Gary Johnson as a legitimate third option.
So kudos to you Gary Johnson; your message is getting out and the people are hearing it loud and clear.
