How well is John Monds, Libertarian candidate for Governor of Georgia, polling? While I think it is an unjustified leap to assume he is polling at 15% -20% as this article speculates, the author makes a good point. Why are the polling percentages of all the candidates in a Republican or Democrat primary generally reported even if some are polling in the low single digits, but third party results in a general election poll are often not reported at all?
I noticed something quite disturbing when studying recent polling for elections around the country. Rasmussen Reports will include upwards of 6 or 7 candidates in the Democrat and Republican Primaries, sometimes with candidates that only receive 1% of the vote, yet when it comes to the General Election they will only include the two Democrat-Republican candidates despite there being sometime upwards of 3 or 4 other candidates from Third Party Nominations or Independent Nominations.
