[quote=“Mother Theresa”]Of course Kerry will win, but to be fair your poll should include all of the presidential candidates, such as –
Michael Badnarik: libertarian. Basically eliminate all federal laws except the Bill of Rights (ok, slight exaggeration).
Especially Badnarik. A lot of people speculate that Badnarik may damage Bush far more than Nader will damage Kerry. For example, there are far more public comments by prominent Republicans who are BC00–>KE04 than there are by prominent Democrats who are GL00–>BC04. The reasoning goes that this must mean there are even more Republicans who, while they won’t vote for either Kerry or Nader, also won’t vote for Bush…but they will vote for somebody.
By including Badnarik in your poll you might - might - be able to mirror any such trend. It’d be more than interesting to know if any of the more vigorous public supporters of Bush actually won’t bear giving him their votes - but can’t/won’t vote for Kerry or Nader either.
Because the alternative is to hop on spook’s ‘Alternate Parallel Universe’ bandwagon, and that makes my head hurt. I just cannot believe that any clear-thinking American could actually, honestly support Bush enough to actually vote for him.
'Course, I suspect that the group Republicans Abroad in Taiwan has heavily influenced this site, and if I’m correct then I believe the correct party line is to publicly advocate BC04 in all public forums, no matter what; if my suspicion is valid then it’s fine now, and not including Badnarik won’t diminish your poll at all.
