Interesting poll results

Two very informal, unscientific straw polls taken in the last week indicate that my campaign for U.S. Senate has the potential to take off in a big way if we can come up with significant funding. In the online survey taken by KTVK-3 one week ago, during and following the four-way televised debate,  53% of the participants indicated that they thought I won the debate. 

An equally unscientfic poll taken at a Junior State of America conference in Tucson yesterday indicated that 30% of the participants (high school students) would vote for me if they had the opportunity.  First place went to the Democrat, Rodney Glassman.  One reason for my good showing was that I showed up to speak to the group, while nobody representing John McCain put in an appearance.

And while I do not expect to receive 53% of the votes in November – or even 30% – these polls are interesting because they show that Libertarians can be very competitive when they are given equal exposure to the voters.

Congratulations to the winners of our Presidential Debate straw poll and thank you to everyone who participated! Use the bottom below to view the results!
