The FYM Republican Primary - Part 2

U2Dem's been out, so I'm posting the updated Primaries.

Good choice.

If I were to vote for a Republican, McCain is the only one I'd consider.

You know, both of these polls need an "I don't support [party in question] but I want to see the results" option to select so that when you return to the thread, you don't have to click through to see how the polls are progressing.

And where are the old threads? I'd like to see how they turned out in the end.

I think that's a very good idea. Could the mods do this for both polls?

Are you sure you guys want that? Because it's going to mess up the percentages if we do.

That's true, though last time, didn't at least a few people vote (either "here's who I'd select if you put a gun to my head" or a selection of "other" meaning "no vote") just to see the results without clicking through? That messes with the percentages too.

It's a shame Interference polls don't have a separate "no vote" option that doesn't affect percentages like some other forums I visit do.

Huckabee FTW. Don't care for McCain at all, while Ron Paul's ideas are a bit too "out there" and unrealistic for my tastes, and Giuliani? Yeah right.

Wow, what a difference a few months can make. McCain only had 10% of the vote last time, now he has 58%!

What? Why did we start a new thread for this?

Because many opinions have changed. She even wrote in the original thread that she planned to post the second ones around this time. The point of this is to gauge where FYM is leaning.

If I was a Republican prat, I'd go Huckabee, cause he looks a wee like President Logan off 24.

I've thought that since the day I first saw Huckabee.

But isn't that a reason NOT to vote for Huckabee?

If I was a Republican I'd vote Ron Paul. And to be honest I don't understand why a Republican/conservative wouldn't vote Ron Paul. Imagine if the election were Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich and we could have some real Left vs. Right dialogue rather than the usual varying degrees of moderate that we're stuck choosing between.
