All you had to do was watch the last debate.
Props to Dodd and Edwards.

I voted for Biden in this poll, because I like him the most, I think he's the most experienced candidate on either side and he makes the most sense. He's also a born diplomat, great speaker and could assemble a very strong cabinet, perhaps of both Dems and Reps. I think Hillary is inevitable though, she'll win the general election as well.

I also like Hillary Clinton, I'm not gung-ho about her socialized health-care plan but I could be convinced if I read more into it.

I appreciate the fact that both of them haven't begun to root for failure in Iraq for political gain like most the rest of this bunch.

Most of the Republican field is just terrible.
That said, if I were a Christian conservative, I'd vote for Mike Huckabee in a heartbeat. And if I were a true libertarian, I'd vote for Ron Paul in a heartbeat.

I'm more like a disenfranchised hawkish JFK Democrat with a civil libertarian streak. I loathe both parties and their selling out to special interests but I haven't found a 3rd or 4th or 5th party worth a damn. It's all 3 great ideas and 10 crap ones, etc.
The Dems at least understand that there is a 'gray' side of almost all issues. Unfortunately that means that there isn't many ideas, just an acknowledgement of what's going wrong.

Better to recognize a fuck up with no ideas than to have bad ideas and be convinced they are divinely inspired.

The last debate was a joke. It wasn't even a debate, it was "I'm not Hillary because: ..." It's as if its sole purpose was to try and eliminate Hillary's lead, which is fine and might make the race more interesting, but a well-rounded debate on the issues it certainly wasn't.

Right now I think Obama shows the most promise, but I do have a lot of respect for Kucinich.

This really is the election right here, because there's not a chance in hell that a Republican wins this election.

uhhh....

If you and all the Democratic candidates maintain that mindset, I fully believe you're going to be shocked come election day.

Of course you do, because you're conservative.

And I'm sure liberals are confident as well for their side.

I'm independent. In 2004, I said that the Dems would lose because Kerry was a weak candidate.

This time around, all of the Republicans look like Kerry-weak or worse.

I hope with every day that Al Gore changes his mind and enters the race. He is my first choice. I really think all he has to do to get the nomination is say 'I'm in'.

I think he would be the best president out of the bunch here. And I would love to see him get vindication. I would love to see him get back what was so unjustly taken from him seven long years ago.

But maybe he's just not interested anymore.

In which case...I haven't made up my mind between Hilary and Obama yet.

Unfortunately, you're right. Giuliani is about par with Kerry, but the rest fall short. Then again, the entire Republican party will be shot until the Dems screw everything up, and no amount of charm can swing that. I can't blame the populous for changing their allegiances after Bush, but it is sort of a shame.

Bring on Hilary in '09, I suppose.

I voted for Kucinich, however if I don't think he has any chance of making it, I'll probably switch to Clinton.

I'm surprised Kucinich is doing so well on this poll. All the Americans I've spoken to offline don't have a clue who he is - including one who was a tutor for a course on US politics at university! Has his popularity grown recently, or is this just FYM being weird?

The latter. Somehow, it looks like he has an impressive fanbase here, even though in the polls I've never seen him above 2%.
