“An analysis of the National Election Study exit poll data by Harvard political scientist Barry Burden showed that only 9% of the people who thought Nader was the best candidate actually voted for him. If people had not voted strategically, but instead voted for their favorite candidate, Nader would have had over 30 million votes instead of 2.9 million and might have won the election”

The full Barry Burden study is on line(PDF), but it’s 23 pages long, and written by a political scientist at Harvard….so it’s very fucking boring. I took this from the Draft Nader Page. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Oh, and a reminder, that’s 30 million votes for a guy who spent about 80 million less than the other two candidates and wasn’t in the debates. Which leads to think….maybe he should have run as a Democrat.

my mind has similarly been blown … like, to pieces.
