Nader’s 1996 total was 685,297, and we are watching for him to top 700,000 votes (Richard Winger predicts about 730,000).

We are also watching for Baldwin to top Howard Phillips’ 1996 total of 184,820, and then perhaps to top 200,000 votes, and Cynthia McKinney to top 150,000 votes.

    Good for him, seriously it’s good news. That said, I would have still hoped for far more especially in California. His performance there was rather depressing considering his 200k votes there in 1996 and 400k in 2000.

    Well, still it’s a good rebound for him this year considering the very undemocratic aggression that the Democrats showed in 2004.

    Wasn’t the only tv time Chucky Baldwin got was that 30 second interview with Lou Dobbs before Dobbs abruptly cut him off? lol

    Percentage-wise, last I looked at the numbers, McKinney was only about 0.01%-0.02% ahead of Cobb. Pretty sad that a former congresswoman only does marginally better than an unknown party activist who wanted people to vote for Kerry.
