Poll question: I Predict Ralph Nad(i)r Will Do Worse Than Pat Buchanan Did In 2000
I further predict that Nad(i)r will get less than .75% of the vote in 2004 and will go down as an asterik in American presidential history.


Ralph Nad(i)r will get his asterik for delivering the election to * in 2000....


Do you agree that Ralph Nad(i)r will get less than ,75% of the vote in 04?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. Never Happen
<1% and I'd put $1,000.00 on it unless it's a blowout in either direction....

3. He got less than 3% in 2000,
and with probably 20% or more of the voters feeling very well disposed towards him. He now has NO party, and damn few of his former well-wishers feel the same way now. And there is now NO ILLUSIONS as to WHAT that smirking chimp represents, or WHO he's fronting for. The case has been altered.

Let's quit worrying so much about Nader, and let's stop going out of our way to alienate the potential Naderites. I can almost taste a Democratic victory in November, but it'll take more than Kerry in the White House to get this country back on track. We'll need a whole new movement, and I don't think Kerry will lead or inspire it.

4. Close
I think it will be about 1.2%, amid loud complaining from his camp that he was muscled out by the Democrats. But 0.75% isn't too far below the realm of the possible, either.

The Culture Warriors realize how important this election is going to be. I also predict that voter turnout will be the highest it's been since FDR was in office.

If Team Bush does win, it's going to be an awful difficult four years.

5. The Only Way Nad(i)r
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 07:22 AM by DemocratSinceBirth
receives >.75% of the vote in 04 is if RNC operatives donate massive funds to his campaign...


Ralph Nad(i)r is a trojan horse for the RNC....


Pity the fool....

6. Bingo!
Future News?
During the Hoeffel-Cantwell hearings of 2009-2010, it was discovered that almost 90% of Nader's campaign warchest came from non-existent contributors who used a series of off-shore bank accounts to hide the trail of Republican National Committee money.
But you don't have to be psychic to know that!

7. Say about 3%
mostly from Cons(ervatives). Nader is an alternate choice to the incumbent as he was in 2000.
