Libertarians getting 9% support for Congress in poll

According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released on Oct. 15, more voters say they will support Libertarians for Congress this year, compared to the last mid-term elections in 2010.

The Wall Street Journal reports, “The poll found that voters are more likely than four years ago to say they would vote for Libertarian and Green party candidates if given a chance, with Libertarians drawing support from 9% of likely voters.”

That’s a significant increase from 2010, when a similar Wall Street Journal poll indicated 5–6 percent of voters would support Libertarians.
