A Reason Magazine poll shows that Libertarians are likely to vote for Mitt Romney, even more so than their own candidate, Gary Johnson.

Among likely libertarian voters, the poll had 77% voting for Romney and 21% for Obama. With the addition of Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, 70% still said they’d vote Romney, with 14% going to Johnson. Kirby writes that statistically, adding Johnson “is a wash for Romney.”

The poll sample doesn’t include self-identified, capital-L Libertarians, though — instead, Cato’s analysis of the poll takes people who indicated a preference for free markets and less government as libertarians.
