Voting for *

Freeper MOA

Should we assume that some of the Nader percentages in the polls be attributed to * in the end, because of freeper nader votes in polls?

1. If freepers do say they'll for Nader without having the intention to
Then Kerry's lead is even slimmer...

5. I doubt it's that bad...
But if it is, Kerry may even be behind Bush, or ahead by 1 point or less. Wasn't enough for Gore...

3. POLLS
I just received an automated phone call asking me to push 1 if voting for Kerry and 2 if voting for Bush. I pushed 1 and the next question was "If you are voting for Kerry to support the Democratic Party push 1. If you are voting for Kerry to defeat Bush push 2."
Would only Republicans be interested in this difference?

7. Polls
No, I don't either...just curious about why a pollster would care about the distinction. Maybe someone wants to be able to say that a certain percentage of Kerry voters don't actually support him.
Thanks for the welcome..just testing the waters.

10. Nader's Poll numbers
will erode as election day approaches.

No one is voting in this election without their eyes wide open to the affect that a Nader vote will have on the outcome.

Those votes will trend toward Kerry, as will the undecideds, which historically land in the challengers column by a 2-1 margin in every election with an Incumbent since 1948.

Nader's vote will be voters who would generally not vote at all if it was a two man race.

12. Good point. And will Nader even make it on the ballot in most sttaes?
I'd be surprised if he gets on many more than 10.
