Nader/Gonzalez at Six Percent in CNN Poll

CNN reported Tuesday that Independent Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader is at 6 percent in its most recent national poll.

And while the flip-floppers Obama and McCain might look down on 6 percent, Nader/Gonzalez supporters are excited.

The campaign's goal of course is much higher.

Right now, our goal is 10 percent in the national polls.

Why 10 percent?

Because 10 percent gets us into the Google-sponsored debates in New Orleans on September 18.

If we get on the Google-sponsored debates, we're convinced Nader/Gonzalez will move toward 20 percent.

At 20 percent, people see a three-way race.

When people see a three-way race, everything is possible.

And we believe that in this momentous election year, everything is possible.

But right now our motto is as follows:

Get it done.

Now, what exactly do we mean by get it done?

The Nader/Gonzalez Campaign plans to finish petitioning in at least 45 states (The Nader/Camejo Campaign was on only 34 in 2004) according to the following ambitious ballot-access timetable:

Ten states by July 6.

Fifteen states by July 20.

Thirty states by August 8.

Forty states by September 1.

Forty-five states by September 15.

Right now, we're in stage one: 10 states by July 6.
