New Mexico Presidential Poll Shows Gary Johnson at 12%

On May 31, a Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz poll was released, for the presidential race in New Mexico. It shows President Obama at 48%, Mitt Romney at 35%, Gary Johnson at 12%, and undecided 5%. The poll has a breakdown by the age group of respondents. Johnson’s strongest age is the 18-29 category, where he is at 18%. Thanks to Political Wire for the link.

    Time to leverage that 18-29 demographic appeal better.

    Divide and conquer what?

    We are not subsets of the left or right or of the Democrats or Republicans.

    The Democrats and Republicans are the ones who divide and conquer us.

    Time to fight back at all levels.

    For anyone who missed it comments from an earlier article:

    Demo Rep Says:

    How many $$$ TRILLIONS will Johnson get from the Donkeys to have such Donkeys DIVIDE AND CONQUER ??? — see 1860 and 1992

    TrueFoe Says:

    Who’s matching funds these days? The US Treasury or the Koch brothers?

    Peter Gemma Says:

    anyone see the irony here? A Libertarian gets money from a Gov’t handout program designed to boost establishment parties. I’m delighted on the one hand he’s getting financial funding, but I’d love to hear why he’s taking money from the gov’t he wishes to disassemble. Kind of like a candidate who’s a farmer getting federal subsidies while railing against Big Gov’t … or one who opposes green cards for illegal aliens but has one cutting his grass

    Ad Hoc Says:

    Peter, what irony?

    The money doesn’t go back to the taxpayers if he didn’t take it, it would go to other candidates/parties. And if it didn’t (that is if the checkoff was done away with) it would go to the government’s general fund.

    Also, Johnson doesn’t have any plans to disassemble the government.

    He’d like to rein in spending growth and balance the books, bring a bunch of the troops from around some of their least sane foreign commitments, stop bailouts of megacorporations, audit the fed, allow sick and dying people to use medical marijuana, advance marriage equality, repeal a few of the crazier excesses of the war of terror, and a few other things.

    Overall, spending would be scaled back all the way to the crazy Bush years (but still a good bit more than when that crazy anarchist Bill Clinton was president), civil liberties might go back to before 9/11 changed everything, and some federal jobs may go unfilled after the bureaucrats in question die of natural causes.

    Sounds really wild-eyed and anarchistic to me.

    True Foe may be surprised to find out that the Koch brothers have had nothing to do with the Libertarian Party since 1983, when they left in a huff because the delegates didn’t toe their line.

    These days the Kochs fund only the Republican Party, and perhaps some Democrats. Not a penny to the LP.

    As for DemoRep’s question of what Johnson will get from the jackasses, the answer may have been revealed when he spoke to the ACLU and was questioned by the audience after his speech if he would cost President Obama the election by taking away too many Democratic votes. After all Johnson was the best of the candidates surveyed by the ACLU on civil liberties and has made them the pre-eminent focus of his campaign, which is perhaps why opinion surveys show Johnson doing better with people who describe themselves as very liberal than with those who describe themselves as somewhat liberal, somewhat conservative or very conservative.

    Incidentally, DemoRep, what is it that we should see in 1992? Perot “took” exactly the same number of votes from Clinton and Bush, and got a bunch of people to vote who wouldn’t have otherwise. As a result we got a balanced budget for a few years, although debt has continued to climb due to interest and deficits resumed a few years later, now worse than ever.

    Wouldn’t it be horrible if Johnson had an effect like that?

  5. @4 Johnson is a divisive-driven candidate. Votes are a yes/no plurality decision-making system, dividing the electorate.

    Having recently engaged their system, the Libertarian Party and approximately 90%+ of their membership has clearly demonstrated to me that they are pushing for a three-party system at all cost, to the expense of democracy, fair elections and true liberty.

    They are simply arrogant in thinking that they have a lock on the word liberty and the non-initiation of force.

  6. Should have typed; “Vetos are a yes/no plurality …”

    # 4 wrote — Perot “took” exactly the same number of votes from Clinton and Bush – etc.

    Such Perot voters put that in writing and reported to you personally ??? Yeah. Sure.

    Any reports from the 1860 Divide and Conquer voters — at least those who survived the horrific 1861-1865 Civil WAR ???

    ONLY more or less control freak government in 6,000 plus years — the U.S.A. has reached the EVIL rot level of Europe, Russia, China and Japan.

    I.E. Which LOOT-the-Treasury special interest gangs can get the most govt LOOT at the least expense

    — NET tax/loan getters versus NET tax payers/savers

    — i.e. New Age Tax Slaves along with Saver morons making loans to the deficit monsters (likely NEVER to be repaid – except perhaps in inflated paper money).

    Result – pending bankruptcy of ALL of the major regimes in the World – except perhaps Germany (which perhaps learned SOMETHING from WW I and WW II).

    How many $$$ Trillions will Elephants be giving to Divide and Conquer Nader types, Greens, etc. having Prez candidates ???
    1929-2011 accumulated deficits in ALL govts in the U.S.A. — a mere -18.9 TRILLION
    2011 GDP – a mere about 15.0 TRILLION

    i.e. the regime debts in the U.S.A. makes the deficit rot stuff in Europe seem trivial.

    Too many New Age political-economic MORONS to count.
    P.R. and nonpartisan App.V.

    @5, how is Johnson a divisive candidate? Why do you feel a 3 party system would be worse than our current 2 party system?

    Exit polls, bubba. Look ’em up.

    I like Johnson and I think he got shabby treatment when he ran as a Republican. That said I am voting for Romney because 4 more years of Obama is about the worst possible outcome.

    So, where can I go to express my support in a poll for Mr. Johnson’s candidacy? I think a third candidate is just what we need, and he seems like a reasonable fellow.
