Late Tuesday evening, WDIV released the results of a poll it and the Detroit News commissioned. It showed likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton leading presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump by 4.5 percent in a two-way contest.Johnson got 11.5 percent when his name was included. It's already a good year for minor party candidates, including the Michigan Libertarians.
Clinton also led Trump in a three-way contest including Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. Her lead shrank to 4.1 percent when Johnson was included, indicating that the Libertarian candidate drew from both Republicans and Democrats. Both leads were barely outside the margin of error, which was four percent.
“It appears that right now the support (for Johnson) comes equally from both sides,” pollster Richard Czuba of the Lansing-based Glengariff Group Inc., which conducted the poll, said to the Detroit News. “It’s kind of that middle that’s intrigued with the Libertarian option.”
