I'm curious, who really feels good about "their" candidate, and who is voting as they are because one guy isn't as bad as the other?

Lesser of the Two Evils. Not as much since the first debate and the Al Smith dinner. In the debate I figured out that Romney wasn't heartless and the Al Smith dinner I was shocked by how funny he could be. Not that it mattered, I am an ABO voter.

yes I am voting for the lesser of two evils. I voted for President Obama again. I hope he will be more progressive in the next term and not cave to the extremist cons in his second term.

I'm going lesser of two evils, Romney. Both are different shades of the same bad policies. Though I might actually throw my vote to Johnson, my state is solid R so it won't hurt anything.

why is this a "secret" poll?

i am surprised at that.

on the international level, putin and chavez both endorse obama.

lech walesa endorses romney.

i find that interesting.

as to the poll question, i am HOPING that romney has respect for the importance of the private sector and will implement policies that are different than both bush and obama, and that he does repeal obamacare. (which is going to be a disaster for america and jobs)

i am also HOPING that, if he does not, he faces the wrath of the american people.

Lesser of two evils in a sense as Romney wouldn't be my ideal candidiate or president, but I do think he's got some great ideas that will help improve the company. I'm not simply voting against Obama.

I don't get the argument that Obamacare will be a disaster for the economy. How is lining the pockets of the private insurance companies better for the ecomomy? Big bonuses for the healthcare CEO's? For profit insurance?? How is that better??

Getting the uninsured health coverage saves us all. I'm paying $900.00 a month for Aetna for myself! Can't afford this amount and I just received a notice they are raising me another $$125.00 starting Dec. I've never been sick and haven't used the insurance once, except for a flu shot!

My sons employer offers insurance with a $5,000.00 deductible (Blue Cross). My son can't afford the deductible so hasn't seen a doctor in years.

I don't know what the argument is and why so many are against it. I would appreciate someone explaining the argument against it. I know it won't cost more than private insurance.

I really don't know.. it's a tough decision for sure. Personally (I won't answer any questions why this isn't the place for it) I'm leaning more towards Romney. I think with either Romney or Obama the middle class is going to take a hit so thats a wash. For the future of our country in the long term I think we will be better off with Romney. I think if one happens to fall into the lower class, a minority or an illegal then Obama will be the better choice but I think it will hurt our country as a whole.

Gov. Romney has led a very clean life and that is a rare thing these last forty years.
