The next presidential election. Re-elect, or time for someone new. This time a PRIVATE poll..with a few more options.

Bignuf Bignuf
A short while back someone posted a poll asking "Obama, four more years"? However they made it PUBLIC and folks commented that they did not feel comfortable answering. I was waiting for that person to re-post a private poll...but it didn't happen, so I am. With a few more options, in fact.

As of right now, how do you feel you would vote in the next presidential election?

I'll throw myself under the bus here.

I will start by saying, I am a conservative, but I am not too far right wing, either. I would not vote based on party but based on what the candidate had to offer.

I would vote for a Democrat, if I liked the issues they stood for. I would not vote for Obama. I would sooner shoot myself in the face. I don't particularly like the choices for the Republican party, either. For my personal ideas, the Republican party is the lesser of two evils.

I'm not sure you are really throwing yourself under any bus. Honestly, your well spoken position, I bet, reflects what MOST Americans feel right now. It agrees with what MANY polls are saying too.

It seems that the Democrats have swung WAY far left, the Republicans have swung WAY far right and yet WHO speaks for us in the vast majority in the middle????

I think that polls show that MOST Americans are fiscally conservative, socially pretty liberal, and overall pretty open to any ideas, right or left, that get us on the right financial track and help empower our children to live in a more prosperous and stronger nation, with greater (or at least equal) opportunity to what we have.

The MAJORITY of us don't want to rip down Wall Street, we would like the opportunity to be AS successful as those folks are. We also don't really care who is "more Christian" and are far more interested in our children being able to find a job, be able to afford a house, get quality medical care when needed (as decided on by them and their doctor, not a bureaucrat, and be able to retire with comfort and dignity !!!!

In short, the majority of us fall well in between both parties and NO ONE is really speaking for US right now...or so it seems.

I think your eloquent statement said it VERY well, and is FAR more "mainstream" the you realize.

I'm not really sure what I want in this election; the sides and issues seem to be skewed so greatly that I can't make heads or tails of it most of the time. I think they're all liars and they've created a neat little, nay huge, corporation in Washington that benefits none but those sitting at the top.

I was listening to Obama's press conference last week and I was happy to hear him rally for the middle-class American struggling to feed their children and afford doctor appointments. I was even happier to hear him challenge the Republican party to put up their plan for economic growth so that the same independent group can assess the potential growth and damage within those pages. Several journalists sneered and snickered because they knew it would never happen and if it did, we would be awakened to any number of things in that bill that have nothing to do with the issue at hand.

At the end of the day, it's just a speech. At the end of the day, it doesn't put the $500 in my pocket I need for a routine pap smear just so I can keep my preferred method of birth control or the $150 a month for private insurance that would cover most of the cost. At the end of the day, I am still angry about what's happening in this country and how we got here. I am still angry over the lack of power the American people have over their government. At the end of the day, his words and the words of every career politician in this country don't mean dick to me.

But, I will say that I'm scared that if Obama isn't re-elected that the good things he has pulled off (and I'd like a definitive list of those things one day) will be overturned or have a thousand loopholes added to the mix. And I don't think that will solve anything for anyone.

I am not sure what I want to do. I know I do not want to vote for Obama, I did not the first time and will not the second time. I do not agree with Democrats or Republicans. I know that it is unlikely that any other party will be elected so I am not sure who I am voting for.

I try to stay out of politics, but I want someone that can get our govt. back on track, help the average person instead of the rich, etc.

I am conservative on almost every issue sans healthcare, so if the republican candidate (not Obama) is for my views I will vote for them. If not I might vote independent.

Now that the Liberal fun and games are over, it might be a good time to start working on an end to the war and fixing our country's ridiculous debt. I feel we really need a moderate republican in office.

I'm not an American, but I'm okay with any democrat, or left-leaning republican.

I think Obama deserves another shot at continuing to try to fix things. But maybe another democrat or independant if they seem to have their act more together. Not a republican, that's for sure.

IMO: I don't want someone who makes people believe he can put a Mercedes in the driveway where a bus ticket was before, just by taking money from the people that earned it. Class warfare makes for a poor cover when you've spent three years shifting blame without resolve and without responsibility.

I would re-elect Obama although it would depend on on who challenged him.

Agreed - Mr Obama needs to go. He couldn't govern with a democratic majority in congress and he certainly can't with the resurgent republicans. We need someone without the baggage of repeated failure.

Obama. 100% Obama. I voted and was a volunteer for the 2008 Obama campaign, and same goes for the 2012 campaign.

I am currently not registered to vote. (trying to get the paper work in)
I am not sure who or what to vote for.
I would have to do some research on the candidates before making my decision.
I would not vote based just on what Party they are from.
