    Ran across this internet poll on the issues today. It is more comprehensive in content than most of these on line polls, though the options offered on many questions were not comprehensive enough for me. I did not detect a strong bias in the options offered, however. They provide an option to write your own point of view and I had to do that on several questions which probably affected the polling results for me.

    But try it, and if you are so inclined, post your results for this particular week in this campaign.

    90% - Gary Johnson
    86% - Virgil Goode
    85% - Mitt Romney
    36% - Barack Obama

    No Surprises there
    However, As compared to the rest of the voters in Florida it show that 57% agree with me
    on the following issues: foreign policy, domestic policy, environmental, immigration, healthcare, and economic issues. Which means that the majority of the voters in Florida are going the conservative route which does not look good for Obama.

    .

    While I like Gary Johnson, after seeing a few of these over the years I strongly suspect most of them are produced by the Libertarian Party to illustrate to people how the party isn't as non-mainstream as publicized.

    You could be right. I know absolutely nothing about this polling organization, but did like the less biased nature of the way the options were presented.

    Yup. Truth be told, I think anything that can shoe-horn an alternate party into the national conversation is a good thing!
