Enough to establish a baseline in polling were asked how they would have otherwise voted, and most votes would have gone to Gore.

Skewed towards people who are going to bother to respond to such nonense in the first place. People who think its an inherently stupid question are less likely to bother with such a survey.
That aside, lets' say 100% of Nader votes would have gone to Gore if Nader wasn't on the ballot... So what? We're supposed to have choices on the ballot. And Nader was by far the better man for the job.
Why not blame Bush being on the ballot for Gore losing? That's who beat him.
Why not blame everyone else who was on the ballot?
If nobody else was on the ballot, Gore would have received 100% of the vote!
The whole complaint boils down to the fact that people were allowed to vote for someone aside from the wooden jackass you wanted them to vote for.... Its horribly illogical and anti-American.
Gore lost because he had negative charisma and ran a crap campagin.
