Roseanne Barr at 6% in national presidential poll, behind Romney by only 5% among 18 to 29 year old voters

Third Party Watch, February 14, 2012

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 comparison with 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.
