Obama? Romney? Who Will You Vote For, and Why?
Are you tired of social scientists telling us that those who vote for Candidate X, have personality issues? (See our posts Psychologizing the Vote, Studies Show Conservative Bullies, Liberal Crybabies).
Isn’t there such a thing as a valid difference of opinion? Can we disagree with demonizing or pathologizing those who think differently than we do?
And about the polls, which appear to be neck and neck. I don’t know about you, but no one has ever called either of us to participate in any political poll. Ever. And to the best of our knowledge, no pollster has ever called anyone we know.
Who are these people who get polled? (We admit, sometimes we wonder if they even exist or if they are figments of pollsters’ imaginations).
So, we decided to do a poll here for anyone who wants to participate. It’s your chance to take part in our officially-unofficial, unscientific 2012 election poll. You can even go beyond the polls. If you like, tell us why you chose your Candidate X in the comments section.
And don’t forget to vote: Tuesday, November 6th. Your vote counts.
