The single poll was done by a small, privately hired polling firm, which asked if the only choices were Buddy Roemer as the Americans Elect, independent nominee and Obama as Democrat, and Republican, who would they vote for. Obviously this poll was paid for by Roemer and was set up to maximize his numbers.

Considering how many voters are unhappy with both Obama and Romney, Buddy Roemer should not crow about receiving only 7%. It is not something for Roemer to celebrate. It is a devastating rejection of him.

Roemer often claims that if he is on the ballot against Obama and Romney, he will receive 41% of the vote and win the election, because Obama and Romney will divide up the rest, each in the 20% -30% range. He argues that he will win some votes from both major parties, Democrat and Republican, and will win most independents. So for him to receive only 7% in this set-up poll shows that his BIG STRATEGY is a fantasy. Actually, with other independents in the race, such as Libertarian, Green Party, etc., Roemer's 7% would almost disappear.
