Quantitative Assessment

PGP nominees 2014

I got 4.45 % of the vote in 2008.

In 2010 I got a little over half that, some 2 percent.

In 2012 Woody Broadnax ran as Green Party nominee in 3rd District, and he got 3.7 percent.

And this year, frowny(supposedly)-faced photos, scaring the suburban housewives and all, I got 4.08 %.

Update 6 November:http://oregonvotes.gov/results/2014G/index.html

Christina got 2.17 % as did MikeB., Jason got 1.97% , Meo got 4.04%, Art Kruger got 3.53%, Alex got 4.63%, Josh Smith (State Rep dist. 25) got 3.1%.

Update later on 6 November: my error in the above — I am not sure why; if we go with the statistical link provided by State Co-ordinating Committeemember Yaney McGiver, then the Libertarian beat the Pacific Green (either nominee or endorsee) for Senator, 30,285 PAC to 42,391 LIB; the Libertarian beat the Pacific Green for 1st District US, 9,978 PAC to 10,143 LIB; and the Pacific Green guy beat the Libertarian for 3rd District US 11,357 to 6,036; for 4th District US 6,427 to 4,405; and for governor, 27,590 to 20,252. So it’s mixed, some races we excelled the Libertarian vote, others they did ours.

Further, it is the fact that the Libertarian Party, melted down though it may have been, still ran three or four times as many candidates as the Pacific Greens did. We have not dominated the election results as indicated in my first post early yesterday evening.
