Latest poll: Readers favor no Democrat

Sunday, December 16, 2007

If Clay County polling is correct, voters are simply not following any of the current Democratic candidates for the upcoming 2008 Presidential election.

Of the 234 people that voted in The Brazil Times' latest website poll, 74 said they were not following any of the candidates.

The Brazil Times listed eight Democratic candidates in its latest poll, asking readers who they were following the most.

Hillary Rodham Clinton received the most votes of any of the candidates, coming away with 61 tallies (26.1 percent), while Barack Obama was a distant second, totaling 39 votes (16.7 percent).

John Edwards was third in the poll with 35 votes (15 percent).

Following Edwards, the polling fell dramatically.

Dennis Kucinich placed fourth with a total of nine votes (3.8 percent) while Joe Biden was fifth with eight votes (3.4 percent). Coming in sixth was Bill Richardson with four votes (1.7 percent) while Mike Gravel was seventh with three votes (1.3 percent). Chris Dodd placed eighth with just one vote (0.4 percent).

Two readers responded to the latest online poll. One reader expressed their disdain for the candidates, stating, "None. Since they all are in favor of taking away from the do'ers by taxation and giving to the takers with big government programs. They are all for rewarding illegal immigration with amnesty. They all want to see, and advocate defeat in Iraq in order to gain political power."

Still, another reader simply said, "Vote Ron Paul," who is running on the Republican ticket.

The latest poll question combines the previous two. The Brazil Times took the top four Democrats and Republicans from both of its recent polls and is asking its readers, "Who will you vote for in the upcoming presidential election?"

The eight choices include Democrats Clinton, Edwards, Kucinich and Obama, in addition to Republicans Mike Huckabee, Rudy Guiliani, Fred Thompson and Paul.

In addition, readers may also choose none of the selections.

John Edwards. I'm not sure we're ready for a black or lady president yet.

John Edwards. He has pinpointed the root cause of our country's major problems -- corporate greed -- and is willing to use the Presidency to force a change their current policies.
