Readers predict McCain win

Monday, July 7, 2008

Close to 400 readers chose to vote on The Brazil Times' latest online poll regarding the upcoming Presidential election.

The Times asked its readers, "Who will win the 2008 Presidential election?"

Readers were given four options, including:

* John McCain,

* Barack Obama,

* Ralph Nader, or

* Other.

Of the 381 readers that responded to the poll, 197 (51.7 percent) believe McCain will win the nomination.

A total of 156 readers (40.9 percent) said Obama would win the election while 15 readers (3.9 percent) said Nader would win. Thirteen other readers, however, believed another candidate would win the election.

A total of seven readers also responded to the poll.

One reader stated, "The United States is a multicultural, open society. Mr. Obama can best represent our rich varied customs and beliefs as he has had other experiences and can understand the need for the US to be more engaged with the world."

Another reader said, "We really don't have a choice," while another reader stated, "Obama is unelectable. It appears many women that supported (New York Sen. Hillary) Clinton and working class Democrats either won't be going to the polls or will be voting for McCain. McCain will have a problem getting conservative Republicans to vote for him. It is critical for McCain to find a true conservative running mate. It also needs to be noted that Obama did very poorly outside of the Chicago area when he ran for the Senate against a Republican. Obama needs more than just the inner-city and Hollywood left vote in order to win."

The current Times' online poll deals with the upcoming 4-H Fair.

The Times is asking its readers, "Do you plan on attending the 2008 Clay County 4-H Fair?"

Readers are given three options to choose from, including:

* Yes. I have children involved in the fair,

* I might, but probably not, or

* No. I won't be attending this year.

As always, readers have the option of commenting regarding the poll.

Your current poll on the 4-H fair doesn't have enough responses to choose from............how about "Yes, I plan on attending" (but not because I have children in 4-H). Just a suggestion

How about a category that says " YES I will be attending".
