|Merlin C. Miller, A3P Presidential candidate|
But we had an explicitly pro-White candidate in the race. Merlin C. Miller represented the American Third Position Party, and perhaps some of you would like to know how he scored. The New York Daily News provides the answer, and I've published a screenshot below (Miller's totals are highlighted):

The table indicates that Merlin C. Miller received 2,604 votes nationwide. However, these are only the KNOWN votes for Miller. In most states, Miller was a write-in candidate, and in many cases, the write-in votes are not broken down by candidate unless a write-in candidate is the winner. Note that in Alaska, 2,099 write-in votes for President were recorded, but are not broken down by candidate. So it is possible that Miller received many more votes nationwide. A post by Forestal Nocturnia on the A3P Facebook page indicates that Miller may have received as many as 13,000 votes nationwide.
-- In Colorado, where Miller earned ballot access, we get an idea of Miller's strength. He earned 247 out of the 2,385,145 votes recorded so far.
-- In New Jersey, where Miller earned ballot access, Miller has received 625 votes so far. The Moral Liberal briefly wrote about the A3P on his New Jersey ballot, stating "The American Third Position Party is not about yoga and ballet. It is a reincarnation of the Ku Klux Klan advocating white supremacy. They don’t like immigration or globalization and, I might add, can’t do a damn thing about it". The Trentonian published a fairly straight news story about A3P on November 5th, quoting Miller as saying “Things will never change with the two major candidates ... the reality is they both serve special interest groups and so we have to build a viable third party.”
-- In Tennessee, where Miller earned ballot access, Miller has received 1,737 votes, or 0.07 percent of the total. The Nashville Scene took a cheap shot at A3P, writing "Pith's favorite gang of politically hopeless racists, The American Third Position Party, is on the vanguard of this movement with a blog post this morning that should prompt more than one scratch of the head. Essentially, their argument states that since Willard Romney failed to shake the nation out of its stupor of white guilt (not to mention the abject failure of its own candidates, Tennesseans Merlin Miller and Vanderbilt University professor emeritus Virginia Abernethy), then clearly the election must have been stolen".
A3P also achieved write-in certification in Washington, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming, Florida, Iowa, Alabama, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and New Hampshire, but examination of those states' election websites reveals no individual totals for Miller yet. What is strange is that Harry Bertram is listed as Miller's running mate; I thought Virginia Abernethy was the running mate.
Kudos to Merlin Miller for getting off the bench and getting in the game, as well as to those activists who wore out pens, paper, and shoe leather getting Miller on the ballot. This is certainly more productive than Obagenderbender constantly stalking Martin Lindstedt on the Web, or Hadding Scott stalking Harold Covington on the Web.
