Our first four polls have revealed a lot and it is now drawing down to the last month before the national convention. There will only be time for three more polls, including this one, before the Libertarian Party delegates meet in Orlando to vote for the nominee. Therefore, we’ve decided to limit the number of candidates that will be appearing in these last polls to the top three performers. These three have the greatest chance of becoming the nominee and should be compared accordingly.
Only Gary Johnson, John McAfee, and Austin Petersen will be in this and future Libertarian Presidential Candidates polls. They have consistently polled as the top three candidates, respectively, and there’s no evidence to suggest a fourth candidate skyrocketing into third place. Until now, every other candidate that we’ve included as 4th or 5th hasn’t broken double digits*. Now that we’re in the home stretch it’s time to weed out those candidates and restrict our poll to the top three. This way we can see where those lower polling candidates’ support flows to and better gauge who is really in first, second, and third place.
Let’s see how this change affects the race: Which Libertarian Presidential Candidate are you currently supporting?
*Darryl W. Perry once broke double digits but that was not legitimate. Perry has been caught buying votes in online polls and has been excluded from our polls for cheating.
**Please Note: This Libertarian Presidential Candidates poll cannot and will not include all of the candidates running. There is currently a top tier of candidates based on fundraising, name recognition, website design, social media strength, and debate performances. Any candidate without these factors cannot hope to be an effective Libertarian Party Presidential nominee and therefore cannot be included in this poll. There is also not a None Of The Above option as it is counterproductive. NOTA will not be the Libertarian Party’s nominee.
