    Count me as unlikely to vote.
    Four of the candidates I agree with 60%:

    Mike Huckabee
    Hillary Clinton
    Mitt Romney
    John McCain

    I'm a Republican and can only vote for
    Republican candidates in my State on
    5 Feb 2008. I can only vote on candidates
    who have had supporters register for them.

    I favor John McCain because he has been a
    POW and understands about tortuture & humiliation.
    (Torture is NOT a good way to collect data;
    Torture & humiliation are NOT American values)
    I could vote for any of these in a final election
    or even Ron Paul, with whom I agree only 30%.

    Really the results are bogus because they are based on someone's opinion on just what the candidates stand for.

    God Bless! :thumbs:

    I got a tie:

    First place was Mitt Romney and Ron Paul

    Huckabee was second

    Obama and McCain were third

    I think it is about right.

    Feel free to tell what you think.
    I'd rather read your opinion whom I know
    than some unknown stranger who is handy
    with questions.

    4. John McCain 3
    4. Rudy Giuliani 3

    No surprise to me that Hillary came out on the bottom.

    The results were pretty surprising to me, and I agree there is too much interpretation of positions in the survey. Also, many of the answers I would have liked to have given were not offered. Many issues can't be pinned down that narrowly. Also, for example, you don't get credit for Huckabee if you said Both, on question 9; Huckabee said "more favorable trade policies" but I think we can assume he is not against more high tech jobs as well.

    I think I am conservative on social issues and moderate on economic issues. I would never consider voting for the top 3 choices the survey gave me, short of some severe national emergency.

    1. Barack Obama 9 1
    2. John Edwards 7 3
    2. Hillary Clinton 7 3
    3. John McCain 4 6
    4. Mike Huckabee 3 7
    4. Mitt Romney 3 7
    4. Ron Paul 3 7
    5. Rudy Giuliani 2 8

    Not for Grubbs, but for the originator of this farce:
