(Obligatory include the actual number in the title comment)

Johnson could conceivably win a county or two with numbers like that. Fascinating.
More than likely inflated. A PPP poll of New Mexico prior to the 2012 election has Johnson at 24 points. He ended up getting less than 4.

That's from 11 months before the election. We're only a month out.

If Johnson wins here and gets enough to prevent either Trump or Clinton from getting 270 electoral votes, I legitimately wonder what the congressional delegations will do.

There are more states with Republican majorities in the House. They'll pick Trump even if he loses the popular vote by 5%.

The house can pick Johnson, constitution says top 3 in EVs. Considering there won't be any risk of electing Hillary (an absolute majority of states is required, plurality doesn't cut it), I could see the house settling on Johnson.
