Minuteman Founder Could Be GOP Spoiler in 2008

Q: Could a third party candidate sweep across the country in 2008 and inexorably split the Republican Party?

A: I sure hope so, and right now it sounds like a real possibility.

Swiftboat fabricator Jerry Corsi thinks so:

"[Constitution Party] Chairman James Clymer told WorldNetDaily the party was excited about the possibility of Gilchrist as its marquis candidate. "Yes, indeed, we are interested," Clymer said. "Gilchrist spoke to us last weekend in Tampa and our people asked Jim then if he would be the candidate. We think it would be wonderful if Jim Gilchrist would seriously consider being our presidential candidate."

Gilchrist told WND the only candidate he would support as the Republican Party presidential nominee in 2008 was Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo. "If John McCain enters the race for president," Gilchrist said. "I will definitely run."

So what if a right-wing nut job did run, what impact would he have?

Last week Rasmussen Reports released polling that found that a third party candidate who "promised to build a barrier along the Mexican border and make enforcement of immigration law his top priority" would run a strong second behind the Democrats -- and ahead of the GOP -- in 2008.


h/t - MYDD

Wasn't it Rove's idea to make immigration the big wedge issue for 2006?
Hurray for Rove !
People are not that stupid -- or venal -- to vote for such a candidate of hate over Republicans and Democrats. Not in the numbers you're talking about. Maybe in a poll two years out to vent, but not behind that curtain.
If that were true, he'd be better of in a GOP primary.
People are not that stupid

They voted for Bush. Heck, some people think he should STILL be President.
