      The Libertarian Effect
      Posted by ROSS KAMINSKY

      In one closely watched Congressional race (Sodrel v
      Hill, IN-9) and two critical Senate races (Missouri
      and Montana), the Republican candidate was defeated by
      fewer votes than the Libertarian candidate received.

      [Note: the last data I could find on the Missouri race
      still had two of the 3746 precincts to report, so it
      is possible that statement isn't true for Missouri,
      but if it is not true it is still very close and does
      not diminish my point.]

      In other words, in these two critical Senate races and
      if the Republican had gotten the Libertarian's votes,
      the Republican would have won.

      Some also mentioned that Burns and Talent lost because of Bush. Who would have expected that four, or even just two years ago! Ram
