Debunking Pathological Myths of the 2000 Election: Part 4 – The Socialist Party, Socialist Workers Party, Workers World Party, & Natural Law Party did not steal liberal votes from Gore, but for some reason Nader did
- Part 1 looked at the composition data of Nader votes, which clearly show Nader overwhelmingly took votes from Ross Perot voters, not Democrats
- Part 2 looked at the composition data of Democrat voters, which showed hundreds of thousands of Dems voting Red, and a pittance voting Green
- Part 3 looked at polling data throughout the election season showing, if anything, that Gore took votes from Nader, not the other way around, as people got cold feet on election day.
Part 4 is so simple and basic, it’s astonishing few have even mentioned or discussed it publicly.
Every 3rd party candidate got over 600 votes, which means that if any one of those 3rd party candidates had potentially dropped out and those votes had gone to Al Gore, he would have won too. … Almost half of the Democratic Party voters stayed home, so who’s to say that the people who voted for Ralph Nader, if they didn’t have the choice of Ralph Nader, wouldn’t have stayed home or voted for somebody else anyway?
