After falling from his previous high of 8.9 percent (August 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24) to a low of 7.6 (August 31), Gary Johnson reached an all time high of 9.0 percent as reported in the Real Clear Politics average of polls earlier today.
While not quite the high of Mt. Everest or any of the other peaks summited by Gov. Johnson, and while perhaps too little and/or too late to impact the Commission on Presidential Debates, and while not yet reflecting the impact of today’s “Where is
Waldo Aleppo,” gaffe, breaking 9 percent with an apparent upward trend toward 10 is an almost certain significant sliver of good news for those supporting the Libertarian nominee.
