Zogby: Nader 1.7%, Barr 1.1%, McKinney 0.1%, Other 2.0%

The latest Zogby tracking poll of 7,000 likely voters across the U.S. (+/- 2.9%) has independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader at 1.7%, Libertarian Bob Barr 1.1%, and Green Cynthia McKinney 0.1%. No other alternative presidential candidate was included, but 2.0% said they would vote for someone else, and 1.9% said they were undecided. Democrat Barack Obama is at 50.1%, and Republican John McCain 43.1%.

    So, the error bar is 2.9%. The combination of Nader, Barr, and McKinney is 2.9%. So, I don’t think this poll tells us anything meaningful about the votes for those three candidates.

    The total of everyone not sure or definitely not voting for Obama and McCain is now 6.8%.

    The bigger picture news is that it seems pretty clear that the next president is Obama.

    looks that way jim. Personally, I’d have no problem with Obama winning if the GOP was able to hold onto more than 40 senate seats, per the divided government preference

    Heaven help us if the Dems get a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. Where is the evidence that Obama was born in another country or is otherwise not qualified to be president? There is a birth certificate from Hawai’i which seems relevant.

    On the other side of that coin, I was sent today an essay about McCain’s own constitutional qualification – he gave aid and comfort to North Vietnam within a few days after being captured. See the 14th Amendment for how that disqualifies him from holding office.

    In any case, it is sad that we have reached the point where both major candidates are of questionable eligibility to be president.

    I think that assumes that there is any legitimacy to the process, Hugh. An illegitimate process and ineligible candidates.
