Reason and The American Conservative have a very similar (and, to some, counterintuitive) vote distribution: Obama wins a plurality vote in both crowds.
Much of Libertarian candidate Bob Barr’s campaign strategy has been based on the premise that he is competing for votes directly with John McCain. Given that most small L libertarians – of both the paleo and cosmopolitan varieties – are pulling strongly for Obama over McCain (see also the Rasmussen poll), can it be said more accurately that he is competing more directly with Obama than McCain?
