They will need more than 20,000

DE:

Albert Gore Jr. 180,068 54.96%

George W. Bush 137,288 41.90%

Ralph Nader 8,307 2.54%

VT:

Albert Gore Jr. 149,022 50.63%

George W. Bush 119,775 40.70%

Ralph Nader 20,374 6.92%

ME:

Albert Gore Jr. 319,951 49.09%

George W. Bush 286,616 43.97%

Ralph Nader 37,127 5.70%

20,000 Won't even be enough to cancel out the radical greens' vote in VT and ME.

Concur. That's one reason why Wyoming and Montana are thought of as more likely choices among the first 5000 signed-on Porcupines in the West, and why New Hampshire is generally the most preferred location of those on the Eastern Seaboard.

I think, however, that the first 20K will be but the tip of the wedge. Once others find out that they're not alone and that there is hope for them and their political beliefs elsewhere, I expect a good many leaving the failed pismire ant-people warrens in California and elsewhere will give it a go, signed on as pledged FSP members or not. We shall see, and fairly soon.

Back when we had less than a thousand pledged FSPers, I was considered to be overly optimistic by suggesting that the vote for *which state* would take place before this Halloween. My bet is that it'll take us about as long to garner the next 15 K as it did to get the first 5000. After that, deponent guesseth not.
