Rasmussen polls Johnson

It’s not a straight poll of Johnson up against Romney and Obama yet, but at last Gov Gary Johnson seems to have been noticed by a major polling organization. One of Gary’s major bugbears in this campaign is the absence of coverage from not only media networks, but the polls as well. He had to abandon his bid for the Republican Nomination owing to being blocked from the debates owing to failing to get the necessary percentage in polls he was excluded from.

In this poll his favourabilities are looked at:

Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson is on the ballot in all 50 states but is largely unknown to the nation’s voters.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 16% of Likely U.S. Voters have a favorable opinion of Johnson, while 20% offer an unfavorable view. Only one-out-of-10 have a strong opinion of him: Two percent (2%) have a Very Favorable view of Johnson, while eight percent (8%) have a Very Unfavorable one.
The fact that unfavorables outweigh the favourables is probably that at this stage the diehard supporters of the old moribund parties are most likely detesting the idea of having the new kid on the block who has more executive experience than both of their candidates combined. It is surprising that the unfavorables are not considerably higher in the circumstances.

It is actually a strong possibility that the mere 4% advantage of unfavorables over favorables is an indication that the support for those old establishment parties may be a lot softer than was previously thought.
