The Presidential Debate Commission recently selected the five polls that they will use to determine eligibility for the fall debates. The problem that Gary Johnson has right now is the pollsters don’t include him in their first line of questioning, but rather include him as an afterthought.
The below information is from the Gary Johnson campaign on what you can do to convince the polling firms to take Gary Johnson seriously:
TAKE FIVE MINUTES TO CONTACT THE FIVE POLLING ORGANIZATIONS (email addresses or links listed below) TO ASK FOR GARY JOHNSON TO BE ADDED TO THEIR 1ST QUESTION. By doing so, you will be adding to the momentum driving the JohnsonWeld ticket upwards in the polls.
Currently most polls ask the question: “If you were to vote today, would you vote for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or other?”
By encouraging the polling organizations to add Gary Johnson’s name; you will increase the number of times the respondents will answer with “Johnson”. Also, you will be increasing the awareness of the JohnsonWeld ticket being a viable alternative to Clinton/Trump.
NO COST BUT ABOUT FIVE MINUTES OF YOUR TIME. Suggest that Gary Johnson’s name be added to their pollers’ first question.
