The Michigan Secretary of State has acknowedged that Gary Johnson is a declared write-in presidential candidate, and his write-ins will be counted. Meanwhile, the Michigan Libertarian Party is still trying to persuade the Sixth Circuit to print the name of Gary Johnson of Texas on the ballot. On September 19 a panel of the Sixth Circuit had denied any relief, two hours before the party had even filed its response brief. The party has asked for a rehearing. The state has never said why it won’t print Jim Gray, the party’s vice-presidential nominee, on the ballot.
Meanwhile, a Glengarrif Poll sponsored by the Detroit News and WDIV shows that the presidential vote in Michigan is 52% for President Obama and 38% for Mitt Romney. See this story.
