One of the last great moments in SNL...

RIP, Ross. You shook things up, even if you did help get that shithead Billy elected. Still, our democracy would do better if there were more like you.
Another myth

Analysis/exit polls showed that more dems voted for perot than reps

He was an interesting guy. Read a short bio piece about him in Investors Business Daily years ago. He was a salesman for IBM iirc, and made his yearly quota in like a month or two.

RIP Mr Perot, and f*ck SNL.

He made his max quota and income for a year in a month or two as you indicate. And then he just stopped selling. He'd get sales ready for the beginning of the next year since they maxed out his compensation.

If that was the case, he was wealthy enough and should have had the bitch offed.
It was claimed to be a Republican plot to distribute nudie pics of his daughter at her wedding or something:

Secrets of Past Elections Revealed! (1992)

But: "It was later discovered that the man who told Perot about the plots actually made it up, in an effort to discredit Bush."

So it WAS Hillary.

I thought he was great. Another businessman who wanted to right for our country. I know die hard liberal D's who voted for him.

RIP

That stupidity is why he started his own computer company and ate IBM for lunch.

He made his max quota and income for a year in a month or two as you indicate. And then he just stopped selling. He'd get sales ready for the beginning of the next year since they maxed out his compensation.

are these the same analysts that said Trump was down by double digits in '16?
Exit polls in the early 90s vs pollsters in 16?

Probably not the same people

There are a number of articles/films about it

Perot predicted that NAFTA would cause the loss of millions of jobs.

He was right.
