the political sensitivity of this forum.

Good luck on getting honest answers. I'll vote for Romney as the lesser of 2 evils.

I'm middle class and I vote for the person who most represents my interests, financially speaking.

Obama, by a long shot. Romney embraced the radical wing of the GOP, even going so far as to pick Ryan as his running mate. No thanks. I probably would have been okay with Huntsman or Romer, but the rest of the GOP candidates including Romney are too radical for my tastes.

I'm Canadian but, if I were American, I'd vote for Obama even though he stands a bit too much to the right for my taste (he's a Conservative by Canadian standards). I prefer someone closer to the centre like Hillary Clinton (who would be an old-fashioned Red Tory, i.e. Progressive Conservative in our Parliament), or even the centre-left like (I have no idea who that would be in national American politics as there seems to be no one like this who gets extensive coverage from your mainstream media). But someone like Ralph Nader lies too much to the left for me.

I wondered who is this guy , i didnt know that there s
actually more than two qualified candidates....

Also , the Electoral College is all but a democratic item.

Strange that US citizenry is considered by the constitution
as not entitled to decide for a prez , as this college has
the intrinsical power to name as president a candidate
who would have largely lost the popular vote.

BTW, your poll is missing the option for those who wish to vote for someone else than those two, like an independent candidate.
Yes , that s true but i saw the mistake too late to correct the thing..

Sorry for the people who feel that neither of these two fits
their political sensitivity.

I dont think radical is the right term. I think stupid, out of touch, idiots, useless are much better adjectives.

I'm still undecided. I know I WON'T be voting for Mitt the Mormon...but who WILL get my vote is still unclear. I doubt it will be O'Bummer...I didn't vote for him last time either.

I'm getting sick and tired of having to "vote for the candidate you hate less than you hate the other guy." I'd like to have a candidate to actually vote FOR...for a change.

anyone but the ones from the two party system
A vote for the two party system is a vote for the status quo and all that concentrated centralized unchecked power without normalized regulations as the main course.

You send the loudest message voting for a third party candidate, too bad the poll choice isn't there.
