    I think there is at least pressure on the CPD to do the right thing. We shall see.

    I think that the BEST argument is that Perot was at 8 or 9 when he was included in 1992. It doesn’t matter where he was in the polls a few months prior. When the Debates were set, he was around 9%.

  2. Richard Winger

    Perot re-entered the 1992 race on October 1, 1992. The first poll taken after that had him at 7%.

    They need to run this ad in the hometown newspaper of every member of the CPD board, and in the newspaper of every city where a CPD sponsor has their headquarters (such as St. Louis for Anheuser-Busch).

    I think they should include them because it is the right thing to do. Not because of lawsuits or boycotts or anything else like that.

    DO IT BECAUSE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO FOR THE COUNTRY AND OUR DEMOCRACY!!
