Getting Gary Johnson to 15%: add to the polls.

If you go to the websites of any of the national polling groups, it seems that all you will see when it comes to the 2016 election is useless information about Trump or Clinton and how they are neck and neck in the competition to be the lesser of two evils. Until now. In the past few weeks Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for President has gotten up into the 11% range, meaning 1 in 10 Americans support Johnson over Trump and Clinton, and Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate is rising as well after Bernie Sanders endorsing of Clinton and the DNC email leaks. If either 3rd party candidate can reach 15% in most national polls, they become eligible for Federal funding and access to the general debate, which would be a MAJOR boost to their campaigns.

So... how do we get Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein for that matter to 15%? You participate in polls, you raise awareness, and you show the world there are real supporters out there. That being said, here are 4 public polls where you can add your support for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein to help them reach the magical 15 (these are not major opinion polls though... but it does help):
