Troy, MI – Perry Johnson, Republican presidential candidate who leads Mike Pence in the most recent Emerson poll of New Hampshire primary voters, has earned 1.1 percent of the vote in Thursday’s Trafalgar poll, placing ahead of establishment politicians like Asa Hutchinson, Will Hurd, and Francis Suarez.

Since March, Johnson has built a retail politics-style campaign from the ground up, with his popular policies and Two-Cents Plan catapulting him to unprecedented support as an outsider candidate.

To date, Perry Johnson has attended and hosted more than 100 events in early states and has built a strong get-out-the-vote operation in early states like Iowa and New Hampshire.

Johnson said, “My plan has always been to make sure I am on the debate stage and today, we are one step closer.

“Voters and caucus-goers across Iowa and New Hampshire have made it clear they want to hear more about my Two-Cents Plan, and I have every confidence I will be in Milwaukee on August 23.

When I’m on that stage, I will expose career politicians for the problems they have created for Americans and fight to return to a path of fiscal sanity with my Two-Cents Plan,” he continued.

Perry Johnson has more than 50,000 individual donors to date, including more than 200 across 20 states, surpassing the RNC’s donor criteria for making the August debate stage.

Johnson also earned 1%+ in three national polls released in July and recently earned 2% of support across New Hampshire in Tuesday’s Emerson College poll, placing ahead of former VP Mike Pence.

The Monmouth, McLaughlin, Big Village Caravan, Emerson College, and Trafalgar polls prove Perry Johnson’s political outsider status and Two-Cents Plan continue to resonate with and be taken seriously by voters when pollsters choose to include him in their surveys. Polls have consistently shown that Republican primary voters want candidates talking about the economy — which Perry Johnson has made the centerpiece of his campaign.
