For those of you that voted for John McCain in the '08 election:

Would you vote for him again? What if it were Obama vs. McCain again.? Or would you try to promote a third party and see someone else get elected?

  • A third party vote doesn't have to be a vote for Obama. More people need to get away from that line of thinking so that we can break down the two party system for good. I voted third party, and I would do so today as well. There is another choice other than "the lesser of two evils". Of course, maybe all the smaller parties just need to combine resources, find a candidate, and put everything and every vote into that person. That could be the only way third party candidate has a chance, at least for now.

  • I would vote for him again rather than Obama. A third party vote is a vote for Obama.

  • I was curiuos,. out of all the candidates, who would they have rather seen on the ballot ...if McCain didn't win the nomination?

    ***
    Of those Republican candidates that made it to the Primary round, I think Mitt Romney would have at minimum, given Obama a run for the money--and viewed by voters as the stronger, more effective and experienced candidate during the Town Hall debates--you know, since voters seem to be drawn to candidates who are good looking, a smooth talker, and possess a nice smile!! LOL :o)

  • Agree with carpy.McCain is a RINO and hes showing it more and more with each day but i'd rather put up with a RINO for a few years than what we have now.

  • Didn't vote McCain so no I wouldn't vote for him if he was running in 2012. I voted for Chuck Baldwin in 2008.... Would have voted for Ron Paul.

  • John McCain had my vote until he picked his running mate. He would need to choose wisely, rather than unwisely this time around.
