Early US Presidential 2012 Anet Poll.

Sun Apr 10, 2011 6:41 am

So, for my fellow Americans,
Who will you be voting for in November 2012?
Obama, McCain, Romney, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, Newt Gringrich, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, or someone else?

Personally, I'd take anybody other than Obama again, but I haven't quite decided who to vote for.

I personally like Mike Huckabee..I do not like Obama but I DESPISE Tim Pawlenty. It is personal with him I hope he never gets on a ticket. My fear is that the GOP will not put up anyone who is worth a s**t. So in saying that my prediction is that Obama will get a second term only because so far I do not see on the repubs side anyone who excites me and I am sure other moderates like me.

Obama for sure....but I *might* vote for Romney, Trump, or Ron Paul, but only if they distance themselves and totally disavow the Tea Party movement. Romney, Trump, and Paul are the only GOP candidates who i dont consider to be nutcases.

As for me, who knows. I'm not a huge Obama fan, but I think the entire US political system is broken right now, and both parties are to blame. I have a feeling come November 2012 I will hate both people running for POTUS, and will either have to decide between awful and really awful, or a third party that has zero chance.

I agree. ( I can't vote, by the way- to young.) All the candidates are, for me, or either far to on the right side (Tea Party), or I don't like them (Trump.) I still hold hope that the RNC will field someone good, because I'm no Obama fan... But I rather have Obama than any Tea Party candidates...

I read a recent political piece making the comparison to a potential 2012 GOP candiate and the Dukakis campaign, I think the Republicans are going to put someone out there to brow beat the President during the campaign. Someone with no chances of winning, if the GOP were serious about retaking the White House in 2012 their candidate would be Romney.

Romney though is having trouble raising money because conservatives don't like him for two reasons, he's Mormon and the whole Massachusetts healthcare law he enacted.

The Republicans are probably waiting for 2016, and I think their candidate will end up being Jeb Bush. One the Democratic side I could see Hillary Clinton running, she will be 68.

Wow. Can we stop this thread now and have it used to declare the next elections? That would be great. Not that Obama has done well, but just imagine what the others would have done.

Next question, will the Obama supporters actually get out and vote?

Donald Trump.
IF he decides to run and is a viable candidate by the time the California primaries rolls around, I'll switch parties to vote for him.

Mike Huckabee.
If he wins the Republican nomination, I'll vote for him as well.

If none of those two are the Republican nominee, then I'll sit out the 2012 Presidential elections and only vote on state & local candidates/issues.
In 2008, I voted for Obama and I wont make that mistake again.
Mitt Romney is no different than Barack Obama. No point in switching Presidents if they are the two choices.

Is it wrong to support the president and want to keep him in office? I do not agree with the platform of any republican candidates that have so far indicated an interest in running in 2012, nor do i agree with any of those who are speculated to be interested in running. I am especially bothered that the Tea Party is the tail wagging the Republican dog, and furthermore I know that the single greatest goal of the republican party is to repeal Obamacare, which is a law that will definitely save my life as I have heart trouble but can't get coverage because it's pre-existing.

This isn't just blind party voting. I support Obama for a host of reasons, my very health and well-being first and foremost among them.

Which is everyone. Is anyone considered center? All Democrats are left and the Tea Party is far right. Since Republicans don't want to be though of as left, they'll keep pursuing a right (right as in the political spectrum) political agenda.

This isn't blind party voting. Blind party voting would to support a person when he/she has not even declared his/her candidacy and has no clear platform yet.

The GOP has viable candidates outside of Romney. And frankly, the candidate might not matter. There are plenty of independents and moderate Democrats who regret voting for Obama. Looking at the electoral map from 2008 and Obama won the following states by a margin of less than 5%:

North Carolina
Indiana
Florida
Ohio

After the redistribution of electoral votes resulting from the 2010 Census, those four states will total 73 votes. In the 2010 midterms, Republicans gained handily in those states:

+12 House seats
+4 Senate seats (out of 4)
+2 Governors (out of 2)

It's probably fair to say that those swing states have tipped back toward favoring a Republican. If the Republican candidate gained those states and held all the states that McCain won, the candidate would have 252 votes. That's probably 1-2 states away from victory. Provided that:

A. Congressional Republicans stick to the strategy they honed this week
B. Primary voters don't re-nominate John McCain
C. Obama doesn't suddenly learn to the job he hasn't been doing for 3 years

any of the "serious" GOP candidates have as good a chance as any to win the election.

While I've been completely and utterly disappointed by Obama, I'd rather die then willingly vote for some of the Republicans out there with their Christian "values" and teabagger supporters. No party with the likes of Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Sharon Angle, Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich, etc. is getting my vote. So my vote will be going to Obama in 2012.

I'm a registered Democrat, but don't know if I would vote for Obama again. I will wait to see who runs against him and then do my research. I'm not just going to pick a name out of a hat. I could vote Republican, if I like a candidate's views on the issues.

I just don't like the voting system here in PA where for the primary election (generally held in May), you have to vote your party.

A. Congressional Republicans stick to the strategy they honed this week

Is that the strategy of nearly bringing the government to it's knees to armtwist the Dems into agreeing to billions of dollars in budget cuts that are mainly going to affect the poor? Honestly, I'd have preferred that Obama simply allow the government to shut down, then people might finally see the true nature of the tea party and sweep them from office with a broom in 2012.

Quoting dfwrevolution (Reply 17):
B. Primary voters don't re-nominate John McCain

It's not going to happen, McCain will be like 76, no one in their right mind is going to elect a 76 year old man to the most stressful job in the world. In the last election i might well have voted for McCain, but the idea of Sarah Palin being so close to the presidency terrified me.

Quoting dfwrevolution (Reply 17):
C. Obama doesn't suddenly learn to the job he hasn't been doing for 3 years

My biggest frustration with Obama is that for 2 years we Democrats had an almost bulletproof majority in the senate and a majority in the house and he didn't have the ability to somehow get the party into lockstep to get passed everything he wanted passed against the wishes of the GOP. We needed to unite as a party and effectively lock out the GOP but Obama apparently wasn't capable of creating that kind of unity within his own party.

Honestly, I'm starting to call Obama President Cave. It seems like every chance he gets he caves to the GOP and gives them what they want to avoid a fight. It's gotten to the point where I might consider voting for a reasonable republican candidate or a democrat other than Obama. The key word however is reasonable and whomever i vote for must have absolutely no affiliation with the tea party.

No republican for me. So no need to be 'worried' about knowing far in advance. Although, I admit, my ears earlier earlier on had 'thought' about the interestingness of Trump, but when his birther self emerged, that was thrown out the window. How about Suzie Orman? All in all, the country is going in a good direction.

They drove a hard bargain, eliminated wasteful spending that isn't doing anything for anyone, and compromised so as not to allow ideology to get in the way of pragmatism. A lot of critics are calling last week a major win for the Republicans. If they keep it up - substantive proposal, compromise, then results - it's the kind of thing people get behind.

While I do not agree with quite a bit of things on the Republican side (I am a registered non-party affiliate, so I don't agree with everything on the Democrat side either), I would actually vote for Trump if he ran. Not because of his popularity or fame, but because he would try to run the country like a business which is what we need right now (IMHO). Well, that, and I would love to see him say this to Obama:

As a registered independent, if Trump doesn't do anything stupid I'll probably be voting for him in 2012. Huckabee is alright too, a very strong public speaker. Even Bill Clinton is a fan of him. I don't like Romney or Palin. I don't think either of them have any proven credentials to run a country, similar to Barack Obama inexperience in 2008. Gingrich is fit for the house, not the executive. As a matter of fact if he got far in the running I'd be scared.

Obama needs to go. Everyone, think back to where you were 3 year ago in 2008. Nothing has changed from when Bush left and Obama took over: debt is extremely high, wars in the middle east are indecisively still persisting, the senate and house are useless in getting anything done, unemployment is high, oil prices skyrocketing, quality of life in the US is in the toilet. Obama has proven to make a lot of phony promises that he did not deliver on and most importantly is not a strong leader. We need a strong leader to address and do something these issues instead of the beat around the bush 'Kubayah' rhetoric we are recieving on an everyday basis from Washington. And I'm not sure about all of you but I really can't stand Obama's speeches anymore -- He comes off as this smug 'know it all'.

Trump is going on the Reaganish philosophy of "Making America Great Again." I think that's what we need right now more than ever.

Not because of his popularity or fame, but because he would try to run the country like a business which is what we need right now (IMHO). Well, that, and I would love to see him say this to Obama:

You mean into the ground?

Umm....we've already been run into the ground, so at this point it's either we're going to bury ourselves DEEPER into debt (which has been done this entire presidency thus far), or get ourselves out. I'm hoping for door #2.

I'd love to see Bayh get the nomination.

No, most all Democrats hate him since he is, in many people's opinions, responsible for the Democrats losing the Indiana US Senate seat last year. (but I think you realize that. haha) If a more liberal Democrat than Obama, who had more of a backbone, would run, I would strongly consider voting for them.

Those countries you speak of hate the US regardless.
Electing Obama hasn't made any country love us. No matter how many dictators he's bowed too and all of the apologies he's made, some people will hate the US regardless.

I wish Donald Trump all the best and I haven't been this excited about a candidate since Bill Clinton in 1992.

While I agree to some extent, I'm concerned that Donald Trump is lose with his mouth and would be a diplomatic nightmare, insulting allies, the united nations, NATO, etc.

The [email protected]$$, brown-nosing approach of President Obama hasn't seem to work out so well.
