Nice article.  The most interesting to me was the "resources" issue.  We have not included that kind of information in the state data or research AFAIK.  We should.

One thing that will influence my vote is articles of this nature, and the number of them I become personally aware of before the vote is taken. For instance, if New Hampshire has 15 pro-FSP pieces of copy to its credit and Idaho has 3, or if South Dakota has 100 and New Hampshire has 4, it will heavily influence how I vote.

I was surprised how supportive the New Hampshire mainstream press has been so far.    

You know, one good way of keeping a finger on the pulse of a state in reference to us might be to regularly check the newsgoups, i.e. alt.politics.newhampshire if there is such a thing.   Find out how we're playing as people discuss us.

Comments about the article on the KABA website are also uniformly positive - it appears that we have some number of people out there who are watching with expectation, even if they aren't participating.

I now retract that statement.  I reread the last full sentance on page 215 of The Machinery of Freedom, and I remembered the arguments from The Ultimate resource.  I no longer think natural resources should be given any special weight; although federaly owned natural resources should be given a (slightly) negative weight in selecting a state.

Btw the sentance from The Machinery of Freedom is

In the modern world, natural resources have very little to do with world power; that is why Australia, Canada, Kuwait, Zaire,and Zimbabwe are not world powers and Japan is.
