Roseanne Barr at 6 percent in national poll, 19 percent among young voters

From Green Party Watch:

Roseanne Barr’s presidential bid has penetrated the veil of media silence so deeply that North Carolina based national polling firm Public Policy Polling has included her in a head to head to head comparisonwith Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

Obama wins with 47%, while Romney draws 42% and Barr stands at 6%, with 5% undecided. In a press release issued today, PPP included the following question and answers:

If the candidates for President this year were Democrat Barack Obama, Republican Mitt
Romney, and Green Party candidate Roseanne Barr, who would you vote for?
Barack Obama………………………………………… 47%
Mitt Romney……………………………………………. 42%
Roseanne Barr………………………………………… 6%
Undecided………………………………………………. 5%

Under current election finance laws, that result would bring the Green Party and it’s presidential nominee millions in funding in the following election cycle, and access to a number of state ballot lines may be secured as well.

Further details of the poll results, are below the fold.

The results also show that Barr picks up a higher percentage at this point amongst men than women, winning 8% of men overall and 5% of women. It further shows that her draw is approximately equal across membership in the two corporate party’s supporters, with 6% or Democratic Party voters choosing Barr over Obama, and 5% of Republicans choosing Barr over Romney.

Barr’s favorability ratings are highest amongst Black, Hispanic and “Other” voters. That support translates into higher support, especially in the Hispanic voting population. Barr garners 7% of those voters, and even reaches into double digits, with 11% of the “other” vote, those who self-identify as something other than Black, White or Hispanic.

Perhaps the most important statistic is to be found deeper into the press release data, with the age break down. The survey showed that 19% of voters between 18 and 29 years of age would vote for Barr, while only 24% would choose Romney.

    I would have to believe that Daffy Duck would poll 6% against Obama and Romney. The problem is getting pollsters to list any other choices besides the two major party offerings. I can’t get too excited about this kind of “news”.

    This is an interesting read if you have a few minutes – First 3rd Party Primaries shape Nov. Presidential Field – http://www.whiteoutpress.com/articles/q12012/first-3rd-party-primaries-shape-nov-presidential-field739/

    I imagine Ben Schattenberg listed above is a Ms Stein supporter. Has Ms. Stein drew enough attention yet to even be included in a national poll. As stated elsewhere RB will pickup more votes on her name ID than JS will earn trying to build name ID saving the Party $Ms in the process.

    I don’t know for certain but I imagine Roseanne had fan clubs when she was in her heyday. With possible millions of members. If these could be reactivated to some degree it would mean grassroots activism for both her campaign and Party Ballot Access help !

    Republicans must be mad. It looks like she is stealing votes from Mitt Romney!

    I’d like to see a poll with BOTH a Green and a Libertarian on it.
