Any internet poll is likely to be skewed in any manner of ways. I still don't think more than a few million Merkins have even heard of the Libertarian Party, let alone voted for them--like I said, I frequently vote for them, and it's not intended as a dig.
The death grip can only be relaxed through the existence of a constant threat. The Greens et al need to attack the Dems from their flanks, and the Libertarians et al doing the same to the Reps. Back in 2001, there was some credible traction created in Warshington State to establish IRV. The Dems were still smarting from the Nader-factor, and the Reps were pissed at the Libertarians because they believed the LP candidate siphoned off enough conservative votes to hand a narrow victory to Maria Cantwell, who defeated sitting Senator Slade Gorton.
