  •  No, Libertarian vote for Johnson (3+ / 0-)

    Presidential vote in November.

    Statewide for example, the Senate race got less votes than the Prez race.  Emken (as of now on the state site) is getting the same percentage as Romney, 38.3.  This means Emken got less votes than Romney.  In contrast, DiFi got more votes than Obama.

    So if Dem and Rep undervotes were consistent, this would mean DiFi basically got all the votes from the four minor parties.  of course it is more complicated than that, but Johnson (Liberterian) and Hoefling (American Independent) are getting more votes than Stein (Green) and Barr (P&F).

    So, DiFi ran well ahead of Obama, apparently benefitting from the absence of third parties in her race.  Also, it would be hard to make a case here that Emken did better with Johnson voters than DiFi did, let alone did waaaay better.

    Mr. Gorbachev, establish an Electoral College!
