Thank you for your participation, and please be patient while I enter all the poll options.

    appointments to the federal bench is the most important to me

    Look at who's already declared they're in the race. Anyone new? Or just "more of the same"?

    We're in a massive cycle of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

    Every election I HOPE beyond hope that more people will gravitate towards a third party candidate.

    Every election I'm highly disappointed when all I see are basically the same D's & R's put right back into their positions of power.
    yeah i think our democracy is at an all-time low really, yes even worse than before blacks and women could vote. There is NO ONE on the ballot who can make ANY difference

    I so hate the limited number of poll options. I am going to end up having to redo this in a different format because it just won't fit otherwise.

    Wow! What a novel concept: elect a competent leader who can successful address all the future issues that will come up as well as having good balanced solutions to all those listed problems, regardless of whether they lean "right" or "left" (whatever that may mean) in ideology.
    We wouldn't do that here.

    It depends. There are many conservative pundits (like a man named Ben Shapiro on the radio here in Seattle) who honest to god believe there's a massive silent conservative majority who are simply staying some until some messianic Reaganesque leader comes along and gets them to the polls. I'm halfway mocking this theory, they phrase it differently, but still.

    If yu think yu can rally enough conservatives to win by moving for a SSM constitutional amendment, they may take the risk.

    Even the most competent of leaders aren't successful all the time. But if the person comes from competence and a desire to solve problems and not just impose ideology, then they're likely to be more successful than not.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
