A straw poll conducted by the Wall Street Journal among likely voters shows no clear winner among candidates unlikely to get votes.
Just over 54% said they would not vote to reelect President Obama. On the Republican side, 48% said they wouldn’t vote for Newt Gingrich, making him the leading non-vote-getter; 36% said they wouldn’t vote for Mitt Romney; 28% said they wouldn’t vote for nor live next door to Sarah Palin; and 16% said they wouldn’t order pizza from former candidate Herman Cain.
As usual, some of those who were polled expressed a preference for write-in candidates. Mickey Mouse, Adolph Hitler, and perennial candidate Pat Paulsen each earned 3% wouldn't-write-them-in poll numbers.
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
