CNN has conducted its first national poll that has included Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President. When pitted up against Trump, Clinton, & Stein he manages to pull in 9% of the vote.
For the naysayers out there that say his numbers are going down, they are actually going up. The double digit poll numbers we have seen are a 3 way race and any 4 way race polls that have been released have typically shown the Governor at 5-6%. Therefore when Jill Stein has been included Gary Johnson has been on the rise.
The next benefit that Johnson has is the CNN Town Hall tomorrow night. The Libertarian ticket will be in prime-time tomorrow night for a Presidential question and answer session with voters. Following this display of Libertarian principles we expect a huge bump in numbers. Johnson and Weld will become a household name tomorrow night and they will benefit from that exposure.
