First IPR 2020 Libertarian Party Presidential Preference Poll (Partial) Results

400 responses were registered in IPR’s first 2020 Libertarian Party presidential preference poll conducted May 12 through May 15.  Due to an issue with SurveyMonkey.com, results from only the first 90 respondents are available at this time.  I apologize for not being able to provide the full results.  If the issue is resolved, I will post the results in full as soon as they become available.

Nevertheless, due to the withdrawal of Libertarian Congressman Justin Amash, the results below are somewhat outdated.  I am currently constructing a new poll with a different polling service with Amash’s name omitted.  Expect to see that poll published here later today.

The results for LNC delegates and party members below are only available through the first 61 votes.

  1. Anthony Dlugos

    Larry Sharpe has seemingly managed to cull a pretty broad base of support in the party, cutting across several factions.

    That ain’t easy to do.

  2. SocraticGadfly

    If you get the full 400 from the original survey, can you still print that, also? I’d be curious to see Amash’s final numbers.

  3. George Dance

    A pity that Sharpe’s probably not available as VP candidate. According to what he said when he joined the Gray campaign, he agreed to do it only because it was the 2012 Johnson/Gray campaign that made him a ‘woke’ libertarian; he’d be Johnson’s running mate, or Gray’s, but that’s it.

  4. Anthony Dlugos

    wait, let me just get some clarification.

    you’re saying he is available to be the v.p. nomination, but only Gray’s v.p.?

  5. Chris Powell

    Sharpe would likely be receptive to running with Jorgensen. He interviewed Jo recently, they got along very well and spoke at length about what it takes to be a VP candidate.

  6. Jared

    Are any VP candidates willing to be Hornberger’s runningmate? I can’t think of anyone Austro-pure enough to meet his ideological standards. Sharpe certainly doesn’t measure up.

    Not that Bumper wouldn’t mind being a one-man show…. He already acts like he’s the One True Libertarian in the world.
