Reason-Rupe Presidential Poll

On September 21, a Reason-Rupe Poll for the presidential race was released. When respondents are asked to choose between President Obama and Mitt Romney, the results are: Obama 48%, Romney 43%, 2% volunteered someone else, 1% said they would not vote, and 6% didn’t know or refused to answer. When the respondents are asked to choose among Obama, Romney, and Gary Johnson, the results are: Obama 49%, Romney 40%, Johnson 6%, someone else 1%, would not vote under 1%, don’t know or refused 4%.

It is unfortunate that pollsters don’t list more candidates. The recent Gallup Poll, listing five candidates, should be a model.

The Reason-Rupe Poll also shows that 65% of respondents have never heard of Gary Johnson. Thanks to PoliticalWire for the link.

    This suggests that Gary Johnson is polling much higher among people who have heard of him. (Could be as high as 18%, but that can’t be determined without the crosstabs.)

    100% of the people in my family who have heard of me are going to vote for me.

    Can I be included in the debates?

  3. @TruFoe — That’s totally the same thing man — you’re so clever.
