    After a couple weeks of advertising in NM, bush gained on Kerry. Perhaps it was Badnariks strong anti-war stance and Kerrys Strong pro war stance becoming more well known.


    If any of you conservatives have some anti war freinds or family you should send them to http://www.badnarik.org/Multimedia/BDNK_PeacePresident.wmv

    If it convinces them to vote for badnarik rather than Kerry it will help Bush get elected.

    Sighs. You know it couldnt possibly be the fact that Kerry is flip flopping on every issue about a dozen times each and the fact that the economy is booming. No, of course not, its Badnarik and his anti war views when most of the country supports the war...

    i think youll be lucky if he gets 1% of the vote in any state.

    Kerry flipflopping is nothing new to the people of NM. The economy did not boom in the last two weeks either, so I hardly doubt a booming economy made Bush jump in the polls between August 4th adn 15th. What is new is a trip to NM by badnarik as well $85,000 worth of ads in the past couple weeks pushing Badnarik as the only antiwar candidate, and attacking Bush and Kerry for being pro war.

    Also even if 51% of the people support the war in Iraq, that means 49% does not. You as a Bush supporter should not write off this 49% of the people. If you can get some of them to vote for badnarik, rather than Kerry you would be doing a huge favor to bush.

    Meanwhile, $85,000 in advertising resulted in a one point drop in the polls for Badnarik.

    Both Bush and Kerry visited the state (something neither planned before the advertising started) and typically when they visit they get a bump in the polls. they both spent at least 10 times the amount in advertising while there. The fact that badnarik lost just one point while spending such a small amount in comparison is impressive.
