10. I'll say today what I said in 2000, if you register and turnout the voters for your candidate

you don't have to worry about spoilers who draw a percentage of votes far smaller than the number of registered Democrats who did not vote at all or who voted for Bush. They draw a number of voters that is smaller still than the number of potential Democratic voters who are not even registered. Who lost Florida for Gore? Florida Democrats. 56% turnout with millions and millions of votes on the table, Bush's advantage was a few hundred votes and millions were left on the table.
