Johnson attracting pollsters

While Democratic Senator Jeff Bingaman surveys the results of a massive wildfire clearing a century of Forest Service mismanagement, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party's nominee for President, is grabbing the attention of more pollsters.

From a piece in Capitol Report New Mexico:
For example, Johnson received 9 percent of the vote in a survey conducted by Public Policy Polling earlier this week among Arizona voters. On Thursday (May 24), the candidate who wants to slash the federal budget 47 percent (including military spending) while advocating for gay rights and marijuana legalization among other things polled at 5 percent in Wisconsin in a survey conducted by Reason/Rupe. In a national survey conducted by the Washington Times and JZ Analytics released May 13, Johnson was preferred by 2 percent of voters.
Johnson is expected to glean most of the supporters of Ron Paul's failed candidacy after it circles down the earth hater primary drain wrapping up in Paul's state of Texas where Willard Romney is the favorite.

Johnson will be on every state ballot where he will draw uncommitted voters and those disgusted with the conservative liberal at the top of the earth hater ticket.

Gov. Johnson could affect a close race in Montana and in the chemical toilet, maybe even sway the contest for President Obama.

Boston police are investigating after a body was found in Gov. Romney's state. Another victim of the primary Etch-A-Sketch?

Good catch, Larry.

The Arizona result doesn't really surprise me but the Wisconsin and national poll numbers are much higher than I would have thought.
