    Easily Obama. Remember that Jobs is close to Gore and that its pretty clear that he voted for Gore in 2000. So its more than likely Jobs is a democrat :)

    Where's the Green Party candidate? Seriously, I bet she has got a better chance that McCain at winning the Jobs vote.

    Actually, it's interesting to note that Obama would increase Jobs' taxes. But I'm like 100% sure he'll vote for Obama.

    Obama would be raising Obama's taxes, too. Not everybody is viciously greedy.

    It's also interesting to note that:
    the GDP tends to grow faster under Democratic presidents (more growth under Carter than under Reagan, but Carter was killed by inflation from outside sources that he didn't do a good enough job of intervening in the "free market" to curb) http://www.prospect.org/csnc/blogs/ezraklein_archive?month=01&year=2008&base_name=your_world_in_charts_how_good

    But, you're right. Republicans are better for the top 1% of the population, whereas overall the Democrats are better for at least 95% of us. (but interestingly, Republicans do a lot better in election years, with this year being an exception). But if everyone voted economic self-interest, then Obama would win by 90 points. http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/2005_05/006282.php

    Not surprising. People don't vote their pocket books. See JT Plumber, red states (poorer) going for McCain, blue states (richer) for Obama.

    Jobs, like Woz, is an old-school hippie at heart. Obama, no question. (This is not meant as an insult!)

    Does anyone here seriously believe that Steve Jobs would vote for McCain?

    Well, blow me down! Colour me surprised! John McCain looking after numero uno... Whoda thunk it!

    Although, that shows that Obama would be better off under his own plan. I'm not sure how that works considering their join earnings last year were well over 250k (well, well over)
