Ballot Boxing

In the 2000 election, Florida had 25 electoral votes. Republican George Bush received 2,912,790 popular votes. Democrat Al Gore received 2,912,253 votes. And Green Party candidate Ralph Nader received 97,488 votes.

Nader was the most liberal of the three candidates, and most people who voted for him probably preferred Gore over the more conservative Bush. How do you think Ralph Nader affected the outcome of the 2000 election?
