Not to Rub Salt in Wounds

But . . . I find it interesting that every Libertarian candidate running for statewide office got a higher percentage of the vote than Garrett Michael Hayes, except Allen Buckley and Jack Cashin.

Hayes got 75,827 votes or 3.8%.

Kevin Madsen running for Secretary of State got 79.084 votes.

David Chastain running for School Superintendent got 98,464 votes (can you say “protest vote

    It appears the Libertarian was the spolier in Chuck Eaton’s race.

    I think if Chuck had been able to raise a little more money he would have won.

    If you look at how the totals have gone in the past this is normal.PSC race is almost always double Gov. race. I believe we receive 20,000 more votes for gov then at any other time in GA History. Hayes did about 50% better than 4 years ago. People will vote Libertarian Downstream but they worry about the top races.

    I predicted the libertarians were polling about twice what they would end up getting, and I was right.

    I also remember one of the Dems on here remarking that Kerry got 42% of the vote, and there was no way that the Big Guy would do worse than Kerry. Way.
