The FYM Republican Primary

Try and take this poll seriously, I'd like to get an accurate read on how people are leaning here. Please stick to your party, and if you are Independent only vote once. Thanks

In 2 months I'll post another poll as it gets closer to the primaries and candidates will probably have dropped out.

If you write in, say who.

I picked Giuliani, but I'm liking Huckabee more and more. Rudy's still my guy, though.

Kucinich vs. Paul would be ideal for me, but probably won't happen in a million years. I like Giuliani personally, but I'm not in complete agreement with his politics.

I'd go with that race. That'd be great.

Ah, yay for ideal worlds and dreams, huh ?

Well, since this is imaginary internet land, which is quite disconnected from reality; Ron Paul.

Rudy sucks...I still can't believe people label him as a "hero" for just doing his fuckin job on 9/11. He better not win. If I was voting republican (and believe me i'm NOT) I would vote for Huckabee or Thompson.

that's the other thing -- Rudy looked so great (and, yes, was very strong in the face of a crisis), but that's because Bush was totally absent from the scene. for a day or two, Rudy performed in the manner that Bush should have performed.

I don't plan on voting Republican but I'm curious as to why Ron Paul is so popular among people my age in their 20's.. I know he voted against the Iraq war but what are some of the other possible reasons?

Thanks

If I'm Republican, I'm scared to death this year. Weak crop of candidates.

Huckabee and Paul are the two best bets you have as far as somewhat reasonable candidates. Rudy scares me to death, Fred Thompson's a complete moron, and Mitt Romney is completely unimpressive.

Unfortunately, Rudy's a sure bet to get the nomination.

That's not true at all. Mitt's got an equal chance. I'm ruling out McCain and Thompson, but I wouldnt be surprised if Huckabee won it.

jk...sorry didn't mean to offend anyone. I picked Rudy too because...well I've always had a great deal of respect for him, even though I've never lived in NYC. But from everything I've learned about him, I like him.

Sorry, but I'm lacking the background knowledge, so could you explain it to me?

'Podunk' is slang (borrowed from an Algonquin Indian word) for an insignificant and undistinguished place, a 'backwater.' I guess the idea would be that "Huckabee" sounds sort of like "hick," or reminds you of Huck Finn, or something like that. It's just an ordinary English surname, not common, not rare either.
