Some states still haven’t completely finished their vote tallies from last month’s elections. Therefore, national presidential vote totals are still incomplete. As of December 6, the totals seem to be:
Barack Obama, Democratic: 69,086,738
John McCain, Republican: 59,720,416
Ralph Nader, independent: 734,143
Bob Barr, Libertarian: 520,358
Chuck Baldwin, Constitution: 194,162
Cynthia McKinney, Green: 159,656
Alan Keyes, America’s Indp. Party: 46,586
Ron Paul, Montana Constitution/Louisiana Taxpayers: 21,372
Roger Calero + James Harris, Socialist Workers: 7,512
Brian Moore, Socialist: 7,251
Gloria La Riva, Party for Socialism and Liberation: 6,808
Richard Duncan, independent: 3,805
Charles Jay, Boston Tea: 2,420
John Joseph Polachek, New: 1,149
Frank McEnulty, New American Independent: 828
Jeffrey Wamboldt, We the People: 764
Thomas Stevens, Objectivist: 755
Gene Amondson, Prohibition: 653
Jeffrey Boss, Vote Here: 639

Ted Weill, Reform: 481
Bradford Lyttle, Pacifist: 110
This list only includes the 23 individuals who were on the ballot in at least one state. However, at least two candidates who were not on the ballot in any state, but who were declared write-in candidates in one state, outpolled some of the candidates on this list. They are Thaddaus Hill with 876 write-ins in Texas, and John Nettles with 391 write-ins in Florida.
The link at the top of the site goes to a state-by-state breakdown for the top 18 candidates who were on the ballot in at least one state.
The reason that the Libertarian Party gained very few votes since last week’s tally, and the reason that totals for the Socialist Workers Party and the Party for Socialism and Liberation declined, is that New York official totals for those three parties are lower than the early New York unofficial reports collected by the news media on election night.
There seem to be errors in the Texas official canvass that may be corrected by the Texas Secretary of State soon.
