On June 11, Americans Elect revised its web page, www.americanselect.org. Until today, the webpage had posted the number of “clicks” for each presidential candidate and draft choice. That tally has been removed. Instead, Americans Elect has a new, brief message, essentially thanking many of the individuals and groups that worked on the project. The site also says, “See you in 2013”.
Just for the sake of the historical record, the twelve candidates who received the most clicks are: Buddy Roemer 6,293; Rocky Anderson 3,390; Michealene Risley 2,351; Lawrence Kotlikoff 2,027; T. J. O’Hara 584; Mike Ballantine 425; Blake Ashby 269; Dwight Smith 229; Stuart Hillman 180; Beck Sanderson 170; Merlin Miller 148; Michael Levinson 136. Among this group, the only two who are petitioning to be on the November ballot are Rocky Anderson and Merlin Miller.
The twelve highest draft committees were: Ron Paul 9,498; Jon Huntsman 3,883; Bernie Sanders 2,716; President Obama 1,912; Michael Bloomberg 1,556; Gary Johnson 1,191; Stephen Colbert 848; David Walker 692; Elizabeth Warren 637; Dennis Kucinich 596; Jon Stewart 559; Hillary Clinton 458. Among this group, the only one of these who is petitioning to be on the November ballot is Gary Johnson.
