Presidential Candidate Bob Barr is polling 6% and what that means.

We received this letter from Shane Cory, Bob Barr's campaign manager, and thought you also might want to contribute to Bob Barr's money bombs .

Dear Friend,
After an eventful week and holiday weekend, we're ready for yet another week of strong gains.
First and foremost, let me say THANK YOU! We made our holiday goal of raising $88,000 by July 4th!

In other good news, yesterday Bob appeared on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" as well as "CNN Newsroom." The ABC appearance was even posted on the front page of Yahoo!
To top off the end of a great week, late last night we received an alert from the polling firm, Zogby International.

In the first comprehensive general election poll (a sample of over 46,000 likely voters), Bob Barr is now at six percent nationally!

What does this mean for us?

Before we've even raised our first million or obtained even a smidgen of media comparable to Obama or McCain, Bob Barr is already polling at six percent!

Let me give you the reaction of David Beiler, our political analyst who worked with Ross Perot during his '92 and '96 campaigns. When he saw the poll, David's immediate reaction was, "WOW! This is fantastic!"

David was there in 1992 when Ross Perot, then polling at seven percent nationally, was included in the debates with Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush.

There are many reasons why this is great news for us but when I read the poll, two words came to my mind immediately: four points.

Four percentage points are all that we need to get into the Google/YouTube presidential debate that is scheduled for September 18th.

According to the debate rules we need to break ten percent in at least three polls before the debate starts in New Orleans.

This is an achievable goal if we all work together to make it happen.

Please do all that you can to spread the word about our campaign. Hit the Internet and hit the streets and let your friends and family know that there is a better choice for America: His name is Bob Barr.

In Liberty,
Shane Cory
Deputy Campaign Manager

I am a little confused about why the Libertarian is supporting Bob Barr for President. There are many disagreements between his beliefs and the party’s belief. You can read them at: http://indianapolsnewgoverment2008.blogspot.com/
Because it is too long to go into here.
