“On the ballot in how many states?”
LOL. Going to be interesting to see how he charts a path to electoral victory through those 17 states.
The Constitution Party was on the ballot in 40 states in 2008. They will be again, and maybe a few more.
That only highlights the hurdles that are placed before 3rd parties to gain ballot access, and those hurdles are created by commissions with members from the....you guessed it....dem/rep parties.
Nonetheless, George Bush won with only 29 states in 2000 and with 30 states in 2004. So, depending on the states, a win could be easily had with 40 states. No one is getting Calif, NY, etc. out of the democrats hands in this cycle.
There's only one state Virgil Goode might have an impact in: Virginia. And this is because he could potentially gather enough votes to throw the state to Obama.
