I know its kinda pointless but I'd like to see how much support Obama has vs the GOP at this point.

Love that Bennington!


The only requirement to beat Obama is to have a pulse.

Depending on the candidate, I'm open to voting GOP. I will not vote for Obama. And I will not stay home.

I never understood the logic of voting for someone who clearly has no chance of winning. Standing on principle only to basically toss a viable vote away. Its like saying you really dont care which person that CAN WIN ends up in the WH. So if you dont care why bother voting in the first place?

Just about anyone who is running against Obama.... or if the opponent is that far out of line from my beliefs and stances, I would abstain from the Presidential vote

Given my preferences, I'd probably vote (now) for Marco Rubio.

But as things actually stand, I'm leaning toward Bachmann.

She says a few odd things, but seems to be the most committed to conservative principles.

Then strangely, given last night's debate, I am considering Perry.

His comment about SS being a Ponzi scheme has set-off the libbies, but that doesn't make him wrong about it, in general principle.

His "executive order" regarding Gardisil (sp?) is on legally shaky ground, at best. Kind of NON conservative behavior.

But still, on balance, he seems strong on many of the important issues.

Every blessed candidate will have strengths and weaknesses. Harping on the foibles will not help any of us make a decision.

Bottom, line, every last GOP candidate (even the sometimes looney Dr. Paul and even that half-a-Dem, Huntsman) are superior in virtually every way compared to the incumbent.

Sorry but that's not how it works, no vote is truly thrown away. Doesn't matter how unpopular it is. It's an exercise of freedom just as much an exercise of politics.

I understand the principle but it still doesnt change my mind.

I'll vote for Obama again. He's the lesser of two evils at this point.

Your username is don'tbestupid, yet you do say truly stupid shit.

Obama is not so much "evil" as he is the embodiment of the problem.

To vote for that dufus this time around, you HAVE to be stupid.

I agree with this statement. I had MUCH higher hopes for Obama as a President, and he basically turned out to be much less than the hype. However, compared to the extremists the right is lining up against him, I feel better sticking with Obama.

Thats a step in the right direction I guess. At least you admit he is evil.
