Did the 1% play into the election at all?
Not this time. The only states where the third party candidates had any possible effect were the 3 very close states: MO, NC and IN. Even if all of those went to McCain, he still loses the electoral college by a pretty wide margin.
No it didn't but at least I don't have that bad taste in my mouth. As I predicted Obama won partly due to all the slammin and half truths and half lies. The blame for McCains loss goes to his over zealous supporters and Faux News.
My vote didn't count any more (or less) than anybody else's. And on top of that I went to sleep last night and slept well, something I couldn't have done if things had been different.
No such thing as a wasted vote, IMHO. Why should a third party voter be ashamed of anything?
BTW, the left can blame Fox News for everything (well, they do blame Fox News for everything) but McCain has only himself to blame for losing this election).
I have never voted or a Republican or Democrat for president in a general election, there was no reason to start this year! Now that the election is over it's time for us to start praying for our new President.
I just looked at the official results from the NC State Board of Elections. If all the people who voted for a third party for Governor here in NC had voted for Pat McCroy we would have a conservative Governor-elect today...:BangHead:
