Judging from the voting so far (1 vote for Obama), I think it's clear you support who I suspected all along.

I have a sneaky suspicion that we would get more people responding to this poll had we asked, who's the last person you would vote for. :)

I don't vote on my own polls until there are enough responses to disguise my own.

I believe great leaders are born in times of great need. Although our country is struggling on a number of fronts, we face no immediate crisis. Who will make the better leader will depend on the issues and crises they face.

Contrary to popular opinion, I believe that this is a very capable field of candidates on both the republican and the democratic side. I see potential for greatness in all of them. The question also becomes, who is more likely to make harmful mistakes.

I'm still undecided.

Wow! This poll has been up all day and we only have seven votes. Surely this crowd isn't this disinterested in politics. You don't need to get into a heated debate or even post at all. But it would be nice to see how this crowd feels.

It's so interesting everwhere I hear people talking politics, radio, internet forums, etc. Ron Paul has a very strong following, but he's getting NOTHING in the real election.

What gives with that? Just wierd.

(Not a statement of whether I support him or not, just an observation)

By the same token, with all of the frothing hatred you hear for Hillary with nary a soul willing to admit supporting her, she nevertheless remains in the lead.

Um, look who we have to choose from. A crazy, theological ex-southern baptist preacher/governor in Huck; a two-faced, flip-flopper in Romney; and George W. Bush v2.0 in Juan McAmnesty. Then on the other side, you have two candidates that both use their sex and/or race to their respective advantage, and both hardly differ on paper, only in soundbites and the amount they bitch about each other. I'm sick of hearing about *change* and *hope* and *change* and "Yes we can!". Jesus, can't TPTB just rig the machines faster! I want this whole damn election over already.

Ron Paul, even if you absolutely hate him or love him, is about the only candidate that actually has credibilty. His voting record backs up what he preaches, unlike the other candidates. It's clear the media did NOT want him to win from the very beginning; him even lasting this far, with the amount of money and support he's raised, is an accomplishment. Not all of his ideas are great, but it saddens me that no one even talks about the things he does. Oh well, don't say I didn't tell ya so when the country is totally ****ed approximately 10 years from now.

14 votes and 0 for Clinton. Maybe we aren't that stupid after all. Just kidding! No matter what a President does (economically speaking) it takes 6-8 years min for the trickle down effect to work on the economy. So what is happening now, could have come from the end of the Bill Clinton years. (Not a Democrat or a Republican, they are all crooks and I just try to vote for the one that isn't trying to bone me over that hard).
