Election musings and poll

So John Edwards dropped out. Since I had finally settled on him, and was actually looking forward to casting a vote that mattered for a candidate I liked, this throws me into a bit of disarray.


My presidential primary/caucus:

has already happened
0(0.0%)
is happening on February 5th
11(78.6%)
will happen after February 5th
3(21.4%)

Do you think Super Tuesday will sew up the nominations?

Just for the Republicans
3(23.1%)
Just for the Democrats
0(0.0%)
Yes, it will settle things for both parties
3(23.1%)
No, it'll all still be up in the air
7(53.8%)

Have you decided who to vote for?

Definitely!
1(7.1%)
Mostly, but I'm not 100% certain.
6(42.9%)
I change my mind every few minutes.
4(28.6%)
I thought I knew until today.
3(21.4%)
I've already voted.
0(0.0%)

Were you going to vote for John Edwards?

Yes
3(23.1%)
Probably
1(7.7%)
I was considering it
4(30.8%)
No
5(38.5%)

So now what?

Doesn't matter; I wasn't going to vote for him anyway.
6(46.2%)
Doesn't matter; I'm still going to vote for him.
0(0.0%)
I'll vote for my second-choice candidate.
4(30.8%)
I haven't the faintest idea.
3(23.1%)

Any other thoughts on Edwards dropping out?

I'm surprised; I really thought he'd stick it out until Super Tuesday
1(7.7%)
Not surprising; he seems to have lost momentum.
2(15.4%)
I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner.
0(0.0%)
I'm disappointed.
2(15.4%)
I'm okay with it.
0(0.0%)
Hooray!
0(0.0%)
Something else, which I will explain in comments.
0(0.0%)

How about Rudy Guiliani?

Oh thank GOD.
2(16.7%)
After Florida, I was expecting it.
1(8.3%)
I'm surprised that he didn't stick it out through Super Tuesday.
0(0.0%)
I'm surprised it took this long.
0(0.0%)
Alas!
0(0.0%)
My feelings cannot be adequately expressed by ticky-boxes.
0(0.0%)

Of the remaining options, whom would you most like to see as President?

Hillary Clinton
5(35.7%)
Barack Obama
5(35.7%)
Mike Gravel
0(0.0%)
John McCain
0(0.0%)
Mitt Romney
0(0.0%)
Mike Huckabee
0(0.0%)
Ron Paul
0(0.0%)
Please don't make me pick
4(28.6%)

And whom do you think will actually be elected?

Clinton
2(14.3%)
Obama
1(7.1%)
McCain
1(7.1%)
Romney
0(0.0%)
One of the others
0(0.0%)
Who knows?
10(71.4%)
