Libertarian running for Congress elated by new poll, with caveats

An email from Joseph Buchman, a Libertarian running for Congress in Utah’s 1st congressional district:

The KSL/Deseret News Poll released today shows a 300 percent increase for Libertarian Joseph Geddes Buchman in just the last three days!

Morgan Bowen … 27%
Joseph Geddes Buchman … 12%
Kirk Pearson … 2%
Undecided/Refuse … 8%

I’ve made history!
If that trend had continued for the next three days, I could have won this thing.
Unfortunately, it seems the Deseret News has published a typo.
In addition to misspelling my name (Jeseph — it’s Joseph) as well as the name of our Attorney General Candidate (Anderw — it’s Andrew), the results of the KSL/Deseret news poll total 109 percent.
Seems they could use a proofreader down there.
Still, while 12 percent wouldn’t win the election, it would send a LOUD message to the media, the politicians in DC, and the voters of Utah that Liberty and Principle matter more than Party.
