Gary Johnson rising in polls, up to 7% in some states

Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson is supported by six percent of likely voters, according to a new Reason-Rupe poll.

Johnson also has a favorability rating of seven percent, although 65 percent of likely voters said they had never heard of him, and 14 percent hold an unfavorable view.

Johnson is still polling far behind the major party candidates, with President Barack Obama taking 49 percent and Republican challenger Mitt Romney taking 40 percent in a three-way race, according to Reason-Rupe.

A JZ Analytics/Washington Times poll from May had the Libertarian at only two percent. And a second JZ Analytics poll from July had Johnson at 5.3 percent.

Another JZ Analytics poll from earlier this month, however, put Johnson at just 4.3 percent.

Poll results vary widely in individual states as well. A recent Denver Post poll found Johnson commanding only three percent support in Colorado, while Public Policy Polling recently gave Johnson seven percent support in Montana.

In Johnson’s home state of New Mexico he polls at seven percent, according to the Albuquerque Journal. And a Gravis Marketing/Captol Correspondent poll from this month gives Johnson 4.5 percent in Ohio.
