I like your poll, but I couldn't answer question #2, since I AM voting, but not for either Obama or McCain and you didn't have a "Someone else" option. :p

I'm voting for Cynthia McKinney. I don't agree with her 100%, but she's the most anti-war, and the most socially liberal candidate in my opinion. I like Obama and I certainly hope he wins over McCain, but he's far too willing to continue the war and/or support future wars.

I wish there was a candidate who was better on the economy, but alas, Ron Paul couldn't continue his run. *sigh* But he's sure been proven right! Hindsight is 20/20.

Interesting poll. I'll be checking back. I'm curious to see the results!

*hugs*

P.S. My "any station that catches my eye" isn't entirely accurate as I don't have a TV, but I go to a variety of news websites, so I figured that counted. :p

Indeed he better.
I was watching CNN and they were talking to some people in Ohio, this cookie factory closed it's doors with no warning. Many of these people are conservative Republicans but a few of them are voting for Obama. It's fortunate for Obama that these people will be voting for him but the reason they are voting for him is sad. They shouldn't have had to lose their job for this to happen:(

I voted Absolutely Not on the debate when I really meant just plain ol' no, because I don't have access to it. I would if I was at home.

Also, I am a pessimist who thinks McCain still has a very good chance of winning, even though I am voting Obama 100%. I live in middle conservative America where Republicans run the show (despite our Democratic governer, who everyone hates right now anyway because Michigan suuuucks).

Sometimes I think Obama won't get it because of his race. It should not be a factor and I don't look at the skin tone of a person when electing them but I know some people do. I know some Dems that are family friends that won't vote for him because he's black. Disgusting but true :(

Didn't answer #5 because I don't affiliate myself with any party and the other options didn't apply.

Personally, I'd like McCain to win ... if it weren't for Palin. Bitch is crazy, she ruins it. Either way though, I don't plan on voting. Texas is a republican state, anyways.

I wanted to be able to click more than one on the "What is your biggest concern" question. Two or three options actually. :(

I changed my registration from independent to democrat so that I could vote in the primaries this year and I will probably keep it that way for that purpose. Even though my beliefs are not always in line with the democratic party (I'm actually fairly socialist on a lot of things, according to online quizzes) I will probably always be voting for democratic candidates. In some cases, it's just the lesser of two evils (for example, I hate that a lot of dems are only SLIGHTLY more for gay rights than republicans; no one is COMPLETELY for them). But I genuinely LIKE Obama and Biden. I think they're amazing.

I might actually change my registration to being an Independent but I'm not sure. I'm a very far left Dem. I'm 100% for gay rights, they should have every right that hetero couples have.
I was more for Clinton but, like you, I like Obama and Biden. Biden's been around and he's a very nice person. Obama reminds me of my father :)
