In a recent poll done by Public Policy Polling, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson received 4%, while Hillary Clinton received 42% and Donald Trump, 38%.
Johnson claimed more support from Clinton than Trump, despite calls from Republicans saying that a vote for a third party is a vote for Hillary. This correlates with the last poll conducted by Monmouth University in late March, where Johnson claimed more support from Clinton than Trump as well. Clinton lead Trump 47% to 41% when Johnson is not included.
In a general election of Trump vs. Sanders, Johnson claimed 3% of voters, while Sanders received 47% and Trump received 37%.
The same poll found that out of voters who favored Donald Trump, 5% of them thought Ted Cruz was the Zodiac Killer, 7% thought Cruz’s father was involved in assassination of JFK, 65% thought President Obama is a Muslim, and 27% thought that vaccines caused autism.
Trump also proved to be less popular than Nickelback or the DMV.
The survey was conducted May 6-9, 2016 among 1,222 registered voters.
