PPP Survey Shows Gary Johnson Polling At 9% In Arizona

A new poll out from Public Policy Polling shows former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President, with 9% of the vote in Arizona. This follows other PPP surveys that have shown Johnson polling similarly well — high single digits — in states like Montana, New Hampshire and North Carolina. The only state where Johnson has cracked into double-digits thus far is New Mexico.

The poll asked voters: “If the candidates for President this year were Democrat Barack Obama, Republican Mitt Romney, and Libertarian Gary Johnson, who would you vote for?”

And the results showed likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney with a slight lead over President Obama.

Mitt Romney (R) …………….. 45%
Barack Obama (D) …………… 41%
Gary Johnson (L) ……………. 9%
Undecided …………………….. 6%

Johnson scored 15% support among voters aged 30-to-45 and was at 13% among all male voters.

To secure a spot in the national debates this fall, the Johnson campaign will need to lift their polling numbers above 15% in a series of recognized national surveys.
