Support Grows For Gore

In 2000 Gore lost his home state, but now a Tennessee television station is saying he might be the state’s most popular politician. More importantly, they quote a national poll showing increased support:

Tennessee’s most popular politician may not be sitting in any elected office.

According to a new USA Today Gallup Poll released Wednesday morning, support is growing for former Vice President Al Gore in the 2008 presidential race.

Supporters said “the time is right” for a man who made-over his image.

These days, it seems former Tennessee Senator, Vice President, and presidential candidate Al Gore is everywhere these days.  Since leaving public office, Gore has made it his mission to educate the world about global warming.

Gore could win an Oscar for his documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” and could also win a Noble Prize.  Many of his supporters also believe he could win the White House.

Some Gore fans have launched the Web site, DraftGore.com to try and lure the 2000 democratic nominee into the race.  Gore, however, has insisted he has no plans to run.

In Wednesday’s poll, Gore came in third among possible democratic contenders with14% support, up 3% from last month.

Senator Hillary Clinton led the way with 40% support and Illinois Senator Barack Obama had 21% of the support.

On Wednesday, Vanderbilt Political Science Professor John Geier spoke with News 2 about the poll and the support for Gore.  He also discussed what Gore’s chances if he decides to jump into the presidential race.

I bet that if he gets into the race he’ll do far better than third.

    Is this one for real, or someone giving a parody of a Republican comment?

    In the event this comment is serious, Gore’s documentary is based upon the consensus of scientific opinion. Basing government decisions on the consensus of scientific thought is a far better way to run a country that Bush’s way of ignoring reality when it conflicts with his ideology.
