Nader: Drawing Votes — From McCain

Will Ralph Nader do the same thing for John McCain that he did for Al Gore?

KATHARINE Q. SEELYE of the NY Times says that:
 “Ralph Nader thinks he will be a factor in the presidential race again this year, but this time, he says, he is drawing votes from the Republican ticket.

He sparked the wrath of Democrats in 2000, when many said his third-party candidacy cost Al Gore the election.

He strongly disputes that notion — “There were 19 independent variables, and each one would have put Gore in the White House” he said in an interview today, citing the Supreme Court decision and Mr. Gore’s loss of his home state of Tennessee among them. And he called up The Caucus to boast that he seems to be draining votes from Senator John McCain, the Republican nominee, not Senator Barack Obama, the Democrat’s presidential candidate.

His evidence? He said polls show that when his name is added to the mix, Mr. McCain’s numbers go down.”
