The Baldwin candidacy is garnering widespread support and is on course to offer voters a viable alternative in the November presidential contest.
“Voters all over the country have told me, they’re “afraid of Obama and don’t trust McCain”", noted Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin.
A recent Fox News poll (www.foxnews.com.elections) shows Americans are considering the third party option as never before – 47% said they’d vote for a third party candidate.
A Zogby poll ( http://www.zogby.com/news/ReadNews.dbm?ID=1505) showed similar numbers as voters voiced discontent with the current Republican and Democratic candidates:
Fully 48% said they are dissatisfied and the survey finds 44% would never vote for Obama; 42% said McCain “will never get” their support!
Baldwin, 2004 Constitution Party Vice Presidential candidate, is an outspoken conservative political newspaper and internet columnist (NewsWithViews.com ), pastor and founder of Pensacola’s well-known Crossroad Baptist Church, a radio talk show host (www.chuckbaldwinlive.com) and author (http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/sketch.html).
Baldwin won his party’s nomination after 74% of the delegates at the Constitution Party convention voted for him over former UN Ambassador Allen Keyes. http://www.constitutionparty.com/news.php?aid=751
“American voters are likely to deliver a ‘November Surprise’ to the two “Big Box” parties now controlling our government,” Baldwin predicted, saying, “It’s shaping up to be a ‘pendulum swing’ year. American voters have a right to expect their president to secure their borders, support life from conception to its natural end, and never commit American soldiers to a war unless it has been legally declared by congress and is necessary to protect and defend this nation. I am that candidate, I will be that president”
