Scientific Poll

I was about to start a rare political rant, but then thought better of it (I may change my mind later) and decided to take a poll of SoF readers instead.

Question: Who do want to win the upcoming U.S. presidential election, John McCain or Barack Obama?

Feel free to post your vote anonymously. Votes eagerly accepted from foreigners, if you have an opinion. And yes, this is basically just an excuse to post more charts and graphs here later.

Ralph Nader is on the ballot in our state and I intend to vote for him--again.

You'd be able to make much more interesting future charts and graphs if you asked a question where there would be multiple votes for more than one option.

And I think I would have enjoyed the political rant.

If Obama wasn't running and the Democratic candidate was a parrot* who's only talent was an ability to swear in four languages, then I'd vote for the parrot. (Assuming I wasn't still living in Canada and could vote.)

*parrot chosen at random, I just finished reading Crichton's Next.

To be fair, it is possible that the GOP *could* have better ideas, but I can't bring myself to even give them a chance based on what they've done with the last chance they got.

Obama (I'm also a foreigner, but a neighbour, so I feel I should get a quarter vote or something.)

And I agree with wife of college roommate: rant, please!

I'm a Bible belt Christian, grew up Southern Baptist, and most of my friends/family disagree with me. I have gathered as much info as possible on the candidates. I have an MD, but I'm in my 20s.

I refuse to make the decision on scare tactics (like many people that I know).

I am sorry to have semi-ranted on your poll, but it makes me sad to see the reasons people vote for a candidate.
