    If your preferred choice for the Rep nomination has since dropped out...

    ...who are you leaning toward now?

    I was rooting for Huntsman. He was the only one I was willing to support. Now, I feel lost. I cannot, in good conscience, support any of the remaining four.

    I suppose I could live with Romney, as I think he'd be the least train wreck-ish, but that idea leaves me feeling the need to take a shower.

    Note: "Someone else" could double as "undecided". I missed putting that as an option.

    Romney's the only one left I can vote for. I can live with Gingrich or Paul, but I think either one would be a national disaster and it would practically guarantee that I'd vote Democrat in 2016.

    I'm still hoping for the heroic return of Donald Trump. That dude was way funnier than these other clowns. I don't understand why the voters eliminated him while keeping equally ridiculous, but less comical, candidates around.

    I'm not leaning toward anyone. As usual, I cannot support anyone running for President, regardless of the party. I am left voting for the lesser of the whole pile of evils, which in this case will probably be Romney, but I don't want him in office any more than I want any of the rest there.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I supported Perry and Cain before I learned how dumb they were, and ignored the fact that they were way more conservative than I was. At least it would be better than Obama.

    My first choice was always Huntsman. Right now, Huntsman has dropped out, and I do not support any of the candidates. Who are there to support? Shall I support a serial adulterer, and a corrupt liar. Shall I support a rich establishment Wall Street Massachusetts moderate who lies about being a Reagan conservative? Shall I support a huge bigot who's most important policy is to hate gays? Or shall I support the old guy with crazy ideas who will never compromise.

    Sorry, but out of this lousy bunch, Obama is better. At least he will cut military and may be forced to do entitlement reform in exchange for tax increases on the rich.
