About the Nader/Gonzalez Campaign
According to a July 1 CNN poll, Ralph Nader is polling six-percent nationally, higher than his highest major poll numbers during the same time period in 2000 and approaching the ten-percent threshold required for eligibility to participate in "America's Presidential Debate in New Orleans", a non-Commission on Presidential Debates sponsored event scheduled for September 18. In the key swing state of Michigan – whose voters were partially disenfranchised by the Democratic National Committee – an EPIC-MRA poll found Nader at eight-percent.

About Ralph Nader
Celebrated attorney, author and consumer advocate Ralph Nader has been named by Time Magazine one of the "100 Most Influential Americans in the 20th Century". For more than four decades he has exposed problems and organized millions of citizens into more than 100 public interest groups advocating solutions. He led the movement to establish the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and enact the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and countless other pieces of important consumer legislation. Because of Ralph Nader we drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breath better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments. Nader graduated from Princeton University and received a LLB from the Harvard School of Law.
