    One of my old friends is no longer--since last July--but he had been on the original Board of Directors of the Libertarian Party. The Libertarian Party Presidential candidate, a former Governor, actually appears to be well-liked, and in abundance, and even in The South!

    CNN Poll: Romney 50% – Obama 49% in Florida – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    On the Democratic Party side, Ralph Nader seems to be sitting this one out. Even Al Gore is sitting this one out. The Third Party alternatives to the major two parties all seem to be working against Romney-Ryan. In fact, even in the link: Anyone has to read down fairly far into the article to find the actual poll results of all included candidates.

    The oft-cited National Polling--Gallup or Rasmussen--never seem to bring the alternative names to any kind of mention in their polling.

    Surpise! Surprise! Surprise! There actually are real ballots with other people's names already on them!

    In fact! They're Everywhere!!

    I think the GOP made a real mistake not reaching out to the Ron Paul camp. I know a lot of folks in Louisiana that are planning to go third party after supporting Paul in the primaries. Their vote won't change the outcome in our state, but in the swing states where the vote may be within a few percentage points you could see things get decided by the Paul supporters who walked away from the GOP in disgust.

    No other polls would take that into consideration? How bout that. I wonder what that other means then.

    They should list the other candidates instead of listing "Other" as a choice.

    Can't be. I've been assured that libertarians are "irrelevant."

    What difference does it make? You are either for Obama, Romney or someone else.

    Because they have actual names and aren't listed as Other on the ballot?

    Don't have to wait to see. If they don't live in one of the few swing states they might as well vote for Snoopy cause it won't matter.
