    Probably because most people don't want Rudy.

    If it comes down to Rudy VS Hillary or Obama - Rudy will win

    I would like to see the ticket of Rudy/Fred

    would be wise to choose Zell Miller for the first mixed party ticket since modern times. Zell IS a democrat however he is a conservative with common sense. He's a bit economically left, but again sensible and would draw the common sense demo's to the ticket. It would be a blowout.

    Did anyone bother to see who owns the site? It is the American Family Association. Who typically visits and is familiar with the organization- Conservative Republicans and their supporters.

    It does not matter how many people vote on it. Due to the very web site home page hosting it, there will be a pro-conservative bias. The fact that Fred Thompson and Newt Gingrich have by far the most votes is no surprise. For various polls see:

    Yes that would be the point of getting more people to vote to get a more accurate picture.

    Given that its a conservative survey though its interesting to see who people are leaning towards.

    Glad to see Hillary is still leading

    She will be easy to beat no matter who is on the Reublican ticket

    The voters (who select themselves to participate) are understandably voting conservative at the conservative host’s web site. No offence, but I don’t find anything surprising or even interesting about it. To get a more accurate depiction see the link that I posted.
