(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)A new survey we conducted in conjunction with Survey Monkey has found that a slight plurality, though far from a majority, of cannabis consumers who are likely to vote in the upcoming election support Hillary Clinton for president. Governor Gary Johnson came in a close second (close enough to be within the margin of error), with Donald Trump and Dr. Jill Stein falling not far behind (though outside of the margin of error).

According to the poll, 29.4% of likely voters who consume cannabis at least once a month support Hillary Clinton, who won the plurality of the vote. Gary Johnson received 26.3% support, with Trump coming in third with 24%. Stein finished last among the group, but not by far, garnering 20.2% support.

The survey had 1,500 respondents, including 514 who sated that they consume cannabis at least once a month and are likely to vote in this November’s presidential election. It has a margin of error of +/- 4%.
