    Sorry about that. If you'd like to write-in a candidate, post his/her name on this thread in this format:

    VOTE: Name here

    I will tally up all of the write-ins. You can only write-in someone who is not on the poll already.

    My prediction for this forum: Obama by a landslide.

    Ha. No way though. Wouldn't even pretend to be able to handle such responsibility.

    Aren't primaries supposed to comprise of just one party? So in this case, just the GOP candidates?

    Usually, yes. In that sense, you could consider this just a poll, or even a non-partisan primary.

    Yeah, I think they are, my vote is for Obama, but if it was just GOP candidates it would be Santorum since I think he's the most likely to lose to Obama no matter what happens with the stock market or gas prices.

    Santorum for me, if not Romney. Obama, is a pathetic potus, looking forward to kicking him out of office.

    You should of split the dem and the GOP. I will not vote for a GOP in the general election end of story but I am rooting for Santorum to win the GOP primary because he is bat **** crazy and will get creamed in the general.

    Ron Paul and Romey are the only 2 people the GOP have that have a chance in hell of winning.

    Only one that is somewhat different than the rest of the republicrats is Ron Paul, and I wouldn't even vote for him.

    Though at least he has a good foreign policy.

    This is probably because he's also a Libertarian.

    Ron Paul is a three-time candidate for President of the United States, as a Libertarian in 1988, and as a Republican in 2008 and 2012.

    At the end of the next presidential term, Paul would be well past his 80th birthday. I mean, I am not ageist in general, but the presidency should be at least contemporary. Last time we had a president anywhere near that old, he about ruined the country, we really do not need another crazy old man trying to run things (into the ground).

    The only two contenders are Paul and Obama. I don't think Paul has a chance because he has been outcrazied so I voted for Obama. Ill take Obama over the religious nutjobs any day.
