Will some of you bloggers out there give me a hand with this? It would be nice to have a large sample. I am trying to keep this as neutral and as objective as possible.
The last TV debate before the Iowa Caucuses is history. I have seen quite a few of the debates. I still haven’t a clear idea about my support of a candidate yet.
I am curious about your view.
Here is a WDTPRS POLL. It will be open for 1 week, until about midnight EST 23 December.
Anyone can vote, whether registered here or not. Please do vote! I cannot track who you are or how you voted.
NB: Students, seminarians, people sharing a computer or a single IP at an institution may be blocked from voting if someone you share with has already jumped in. If wish, email me your vote. I won’t identify who you are.
Add a BRIEF comment if you wish, explaining your choice. Keep it BRIEF. BRIEF. As in AS SHORT AS POSSIBLE to make your point.
Also, for the sake of peace, do NOT… do NOT engage each other in the combox. Do not respond to… do not react to… do not compliment, agree with, or disagree with any other person in the combox. State your own view only. I will go through and delete all comments which mention other commentators. I impose this so that people won’t be afraid to state their opinion.
Please vote ONCE only. Thanks. People who cannot vote legally in US elections, … please don’t vote, but leave a comment in the combox if you wish.
I originally posted the candidates names in ALPHABETICAL ORDER. If I change the poll default options for a different poll I may post, the order will probably shift around. I will wait for there to be quite a few votes registered before I vote. The RESULTS order of names will, I believe, reflect the number of votes. The order the candidates names appear in the RESULTS (after you vote) does NOT reflect my own preference or my vote.
Which GOP candidate would you more likely support today? In alphabetical order....
- Paul (40%, 1,465 Votes)
- Santorum (22%, 825 Votes)
- Gingrich (18%, 676 Votes)
- Romney (7%, 262 Votes)
- Bachmann (4%, 138 Votes)
- Huntsman (3%, 117 Votes)
- Perry (3%, 111 Votes)
- I COULD vote in a GOP primary, but I WILL NOT VOTE. (3%, 90 Votes)
Total Voters: 3,685
NB: I am posting about Republican candidates because there is no Democratic race for President this time around. Were there also a Democrat challenger to Pres. Obama, I would also put up a poll about that race.
I may repost this poll from time to time.
UPDATE: 19 Dec 1527 GMT:
I watched late yesterday as there was a sharp flood of several hundred votes for Ron Paul in a narrow time frame. Then the sharp spike stopped.
