Apologies to trndobird who just did a poll, but I was curious if the results would look different if we had instant runoff elections.

I'll give it one week.

You get to vote for three candidates. Vote once in the first choice candidate column, once in the second choice section and once in the third choice column. People who vote more for more than 3 candidates or more than once in a section will have their votes discarded like so many hanging chads. (*edit* also do not vote for the same candidate more than once)

Your First Choice gets three points, Second Choice Gets Two and Third Choice gets 1.


So if my ballot is :

1)Fidel Castro =3
2)Bill Richardson =2
3)Dennis Kucinich =1

and patteeu's ballot is

1)Darth Cheney=3
2)Bill Richardson=2
3)Ken Lay, risen from the dead=1

then Bill Richardson, with a total of four points is the winner.

trndobrd, I forgot about dbl voting, post your 2nd and 3rd, if you want it to count. Otherwise, I'll credit Ron Paul with one 2nd and discount your 3rd vote. I knew I forgot something. :cuss:

Sorry it's Paul or bust for me.
All three.

If Florida is truly a swing state, and Rudy is the nominee for the Repubs, would you still write-in for Ron Paul?

I DEFINITELY won't vote for any Pub other than Paul.
My fellow Pubs need to be punished for being bad.
This may be the only way for them to mend their ways, and then relaunch.

I'm considering writing Paul in...but I'll have to see if it looks like the Pubs are leading for what I'll have to do. :evil:

That's okay, I'll just count your first vote then, per the OP.

Of course, since i'm such a nice guy, I'll let you post a change if you want your 2nd and 3rd to still count. :D

Same here. I don't have any other preferences. I'm voting for Ron Paul even if I have to write him in.

WTF? Who made this abomination of a poll? If you want to cast a vote for Newt Gingrich, you'd better make him your first choice because he's not available as a 2nd or 3rd. And if Mitt Romney is your first choice, you have to decide whether you prefer Mitt or Mitt. And after reading the OP, I was very disappointed that I didn't even have the option of picking Darth Cheney or a resurrected Ken Lay at all. Rainman makes this stuff look so easy. :p

FTR, I voted for:

1) Mitt Romney (the first one)
2) Rudy Giuliani
3) Fred Thompson

Well, looks like Paul wins.

Now, if we could only convince everyone else in the country NOT to vote...
