All the staff at dbcgreentx.net hope that your Flag Day has not sucked too awfully, considering the horrible news from Orlando that keeps revealing new wrinkles and the related revival of gun debates on Facebook.
Here are NBC/SurveyMonkey poll results released today. They are showing Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson polling at 9%, Green candidate Jill Stein at 5%, That 5% is a magical number for third-party campaigns, since 5% nationwide in the presidential race qualifies a party for federal funds in the next cycle.
The Libertarians have been drooling loudly over the prospect of reaching 15%, as Rachel Maddow has reported. That level in five reputable polls (whichever those are) gets your candidate past the gate-keepers at the Commission on Presidential Debates.
There is only the one question about preferences in a four-way race. But given only Clinton and Trump as voting choices, 20% choose "somebody else."
The figure for Stein represents an increase from the 4% showing last week. All the percentages are rounded, or course, so it may be a matter of jumping from 4.4% to 4.6%, with the usual margins of error thrown in.
