DescriptionThe wheels are just beginning to fall off the Barr campaign. The latest email sent out yesterday by the Libertarian Party on behalf of the Barr campaign demonstrates this fact beyond any doubt. In that email Andrew Davis, National Media Coordinator for the LP, states the following:


The email message goes on to mention that this will help the LP as a whole and that if party members give just a little more money, their dreams might come true. The only problem is that the analysis is divorced from reality.

The truth is that Barr is nowhere near 6%. He did hit 6% nationally in one poll in June, but now he is polling in the 1-2% range in national polls...or at least, in those polls that are willing to include his name in the polling. By election day, if we use history as our guide, he likely won't even be at 0.3%.

USA Election Polls tracks all the polling it can get its hands on for the Presidential campaign. They have an entire page devoted to Bob Barr in the polling. The polls reported on that page show that while Barr was indeed in the 5-7% range in various polls taken in June, he has since plummeted into the 1-2% range in every poll taken in August where his name has been included in the polling questions.
