Libertarian Party presidential nominee Bob Barr says while Barack Obama and John McCain are sparring over their houses and their vice presidential picks, he's picking up steam in battleground states -- including Florida.
"It's hard to ignore the numbers," Barr said, referring a Zogby poll from last week. According to the poll results for 10 battleground states, Barr was polling 11 percent in New Hampshire and 10 percent in Nevada. He's at 5 percent in Florida, though that's well ahead of Ralph Nader, the man Florida Democrats will never forget -- or forgive. Nader, whom Dems blame for Al Gore's loss in 2000, polled just 1 percent.
