    Alan Keyes may run for President on the Constitution Party.

    How might you vote?

    NOTE: There is a difference between answer 3 & 5

    Well lets ee he isnt corrupt and a liar, he has a PHD in government from harvard and has more of a clue as to what the constitution is as intended by the founding fathers than anyone else. I may just vote for him.

    At this point I have no idea what I will do, not sure Alfred E Neuman is running this time.

    We have a mentally challenged fellow running for our city council seat and I think he would do a better job than the last two.

    Every election for a number of years I just keep telling the Lord that I am sure glad He knows what He's doing :thumbs:

    I supported Keyes in '00. However I will not support him in '08. While I agree with many of his positions he is a candidate of the past. He probably will not even be able to get on the ballets of all 50 states.

    The primary here in North Carolina is already underway (early voting). I voted for John McCain (Republican Nomination), Elizabeth Dole (Senate), and Fred Smith (Governor). I plan on voting the exact same way in November.

    I supported Keyes in 2000 too, even voting for him in the KY primary after GWB had sealed up the nomination...but i don't think i'll be supporting him this time around. I like him, but don't think he'll be getting my vote this time around.

    I've voted for Alan Keyes before in our state primaries, and I may just vote for him again.

    I'm not sure if the Constitution Party will be on the ballot in TN this November. From what I understand, even if they were on the ballot in 2004 (can't remember if they were), that doesn't necessarily mean they'll be on the 2008 ballot.

    Apparently in TN, third parties (unlike the Dem or Rep parties) have to go through a process of securing a place on the ballot in every election cycle. This is probably the case for third parties in most every state.

    In New York a party needs to recieve 50,000 votes for governer to be
    guarenteed ballot status for the next 4 years. And vote total determines
    the ballott line. Currently in NY it is Row A) Dems; Row B) Rep; Row C)
    Independence; Row D) Conservative; Row E) Working Families

    To be on a statewide ballot (without perm status) you need
    something like 100,000 petitions

    When I was in WV, your party needed to have recived at least 1%
    of the vote in the last governers election for perm status
