In an opinion piece by contributor Joe Trippi titled “Why Gary Johnson could cost Obama or Romney a win in 2012” published earlier today on Foxnews.com, Mr. Trippi concludes:
Johnson could make a major dent in the general election — because he is currently doing better than most people realize in several key swing states. . . . both campaigns should be looking over their shoulders at that guy almost nobody is talking about.
The article cites data indicating in some states Governor Johnson pulls more support from Romney than Obama; in other states pulls more from Obama than Romney; and complains that: “We have no idea of what happens when you add Gary Johnson to presidential polls in places like Ohio or Florida or Iowa . . . because few pollsters have bothered to ask the question.”
