    This is a poll about your personal economics. Your answers will not be public.

    I plan to vote for Romney with great reluctance. Of note, there is no way a poll of BB will predict the outcome of this election. Most on this board either think Romney is too liberal and are voting third party, or are voting for Romney with reservation. This is not the thinking of most Americans, especially in the larger electoral college states.

    A poll on BB basically predicts Romney will carry some of the Southern states, some of the Midwest, and the interior West.

    I probably will be one of the reluctant Romney Voters. I did not and cannot vote for the zero - that guy need to go back to where he came from.

    I'm personally better off financially, but it has nothing to do with Obama or any other politician. I'm blessed to have a secure job with a solid company (Walgreens), and in 2009 I took steps to get myself out of debt, and achieved that goal by February of 2010. I'm still debt free and with some savings today (in addition to my 401(k) and VIP savings). But I am where I am because of a combination of my own decisions and landing in a good job 14 years ago (for which I give God the glory because Walgreens wasn't at all where I thought I was going to end up - but that's a long story that's way off topic). It would have happened regardless of who was in office.

    The last four years have been pretty good for us.
