…at least in Georgia, where the LP ticket is polling at unprecedented levels due to Barr’s notoriety there.
Most interestingly, his 5.6% polling performance pulls strongly from both Democrats (5.0%) and Republicans (7.5%), underscoring the appeal of the Libertarian Party to both sides of the “political spectrum.”
With McCain and Obama polling within the margin of error against each other, the Libertarian Party may be close to attaining the “light switch” power I’ve long advocated it needs — the ability to “flip the switch” towards one old party or the other, and gaining policy compromises and concessions in exchange for how it chooses to flip the switch.
In Georgia, Barr could run hard against McCain on taxes and the war, or against Obama on social issues and the war.
Hat tip to Delaware Libertarian for pointing out the survey.
