According to Richard Winger,
Ralph Naderâ€™s name will be on the ballot this year in states containing 85.2% of the national popular vote cast in 2004. This is far better than his 2004 showing, when he was only on before 50.1%. However, it is not as good as his 2000 showing, when he was on in 90.5% of the nation.
As for McKinney,
This year, Cynthia McKinney will be on the ballot in states that cast 70.5% of the national popular vote in 2004. This is the second best ballot access showing in the partyâ€™s history. Only 2000 was better for the Green Party.Of course, the exact state-by-state distribution of the 2008 national popular vote will be slightly different than it was in 2004. Using the 2004 vote totals is the best approximation one can make at this point.In 2004, presidential nominee David Cobb had been on the ballot before 54.8% of the voters. In 2000, Green nominee Ralph Nader had been on before 90.5% of the voters.
