    Gary Johnson Is Playing Spoiler To Romney In New Mexico




    Here's a new poll by Patriot Majority USA that shows how much of an effect Gary Johnson could have on Mitt Romney's vote in potential swing-state New Mexico this November.

    Craig Varoga, Patriot Majority USA's president, is a prominent Democratic strategist. There are no details on the breakdown of votes. So take this with a little grain of salt until full details are released. But Johnson cuts in pretty significantly to Romney's core demographics.

    The topline results: Obama 48, Romney 35, Johnson 12.

    Few polls have accounted for Johnson as a specific alternative to Obama and Romney. Johnson is the Libertarian Party candidate in the 2012 election and the former Governor of New Mexico.

    There are a few significant areas where Romney sees his lead drastically shrink because of the presence of Johnson.

    PPP Survey Shows Gary Johnson Polling at 9% in Arizona


    By Austin Cassidy on May 24, 2012



    A new poll out from Public Policy Polling shows former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President, with 9% of the vote in Arizona. This follows other PPP surveys that have shown Johnson polling similarly well — high single digits — in states like Montana, New Hampshire and North Carolina. The only state where Johnson has cracked into double-digits thus far is New Mexico.

    The poll asked voters: “If the candidates for President this year were Democrat Barack Obama, Republican Mitt Romney, and Libertarian Gary Johnson, who would you vote for?”

    And the results showed likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney with a slight lead over President Obama.

    Mitt Romney (R) …………….. 45%
    Barack Obama (D) …………… 41%
    Gary Johnson (L) ……………. 9%
    Undecided …………………….. 6%
