Gary Johnson Polling at 8% in Montana

A new survey out from Public Policy Polling shows likely Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson polling at 8% in Montana.  The  new number reinforces the perception that Johnson’s candidacy will have legs throughout the western states.

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

Mitt Romney…………………………….. 43%
Barack Obama…………………………… 41%
Gary Johnson ………………………….. 8%
Undecided…………………………….. 7%

When the data is broken down further, Johnson appears to be capturing 4% of Democrats and 5% of Republicans. Among self-described independents, Johnson surges to 15%.

The former New Mexico governor is also polling at 13% among voters under the age of 30.

The Libertarian Party will select their nominee tomorrow at their ongoing convention in Las Vegas. Johnson is heavily favored to win the top spot on the 40-year old party’s ticket.
