Here is where it gets tough for Bob Barr and the Libertarian Party. Polling companies like Rassmussen are giving polls with the only options for President being Barack Obama and John McCain. The poll among Arkansas voters show that 8% prefer “some other candidate.”
Why do people give such credence to polling firms? I remember a class action lawsuit filed by the LPPA and LP candidates Richard Piotrowski and Betsy Summers against Quinnipiac College. The college accepts federal money for student tuition and is supposed to be unbiased in politics. Excluding candidates on the ballot constitutes as bias according to the law suit. I haven’t heard anything about the suit since it was filed.
The longer polls exclude Bob Barr, the harder it will be for him (as well as for downticket candidates.)
