    ...your opponent wins by 3% or so. R. Nader made it "too close to call".

    In a Democracy, everything is politics.

    •  Facts. Math. (0+ / 0-)

      Florida vote totals, 2000 (final)

      George W. Bush 2,912,790

      Al Gore 2,912,253

      Difference: 537

      Ralph Nader 97,421

      97,421 > 537

      Sure, there were a lot of other factors--racist voter purges and ID requirements, lousy Gore campaign, butterfly ballot, etc. But Gore would've won despite all these if not for Nader.
