|Lucas Overby (LPF)||
Poll: Politisite is wondering who you think has the most potential as the 2016 Republican Presidential candidate
We expected Lucas Overby (L) to get 3% of the vote. Instead Overby received nearly 5%.
In the past, when a Libertarian candidate polled at 7%, we would expect that real outcome would be between 1.5-3%. In the last several elections, it appears that Libertarian voters are now more committed to vote 3rd party and not change their vote while in the voting booth.
No longer can we can expect Libertarians to vote 1 in 3 or 1 in 2 as they poll. That number now appears to be 7 in 10. Our Politisite Projection model will be altered to reflect those changes.
And now for a Laugh:

REPUBLICANS WIN FL-13 SPECIAL ELECTION, despite libertarian getting almost 5%. I kinda figured this was coming when Dems started tweeting this morning that special elections don’t mean anything. . . .
