Primary Tomorrow

We have our primary tomorrow and I will be checking off Fred Thompson as my first choice of the available candidates. Not perfect but he appears to be the best of the bunch.

However I do not expect him to win tomorrow.

A small-town daily has been running a survey of its readers to see how they are going to vote.

This is the results.

This may be misleading on a couple of levels.

First off Edwards and Obama are not campaigning in Michigan due to absurd and destructive intra-party politics. We are holding our primaries too soon to please the DNC so they refuse to seat our delegates. It's sad when Michigan can be ignored.

Secondly, you could vote multiple times in the above survey which is probably why Ron Paul is doing so well.

There is talk that some Democrats, since they are being denied the right to vote for their candidate, plan to vote in the GOP primary for reasons of simple mischief while state Democratic Party officials are calling for the DEM voters to vote non-committed. Perhaps a wise move.

Good for you, Shoprat. No one is perfect. Unless you are Jesus or Mother Theresa, Fred is as close as it's gets. :)

The DNC *did* tell them they'd be loosing delegates for going so early.
Fla is in the same boat, if I remember right.

They're Dems, they've been getting away with that kind of cr@p for so long, it's natural to feel there's no repercussions for your actions.

I've read quite a few reports that some Dems are going to vote for McCain so, if he wins, it'll be a fake win.

I am sure Paul voters voted multiple times as has been their forte in unofficial polls with repeat voting, LGF has documented it well.If you support Fred then you should vote for Mitt to beat McCain and kill his momentum going into SC and give Fred a chance there. I would think the Dems would just stay home in this situation or vote uncommited or for Hillary rather than support an 'evil' Republican.

I was glad to see your state not give a victory to McCain--woo-hoo!! I would've preferred a Fred or Rudy win but I'll take Romney any day over McCain or Huckabee.

I agree with you about Fred. I hope to get the opportunity to cast a vote for him on February 5.

persoanlly, I wish that the Huckster had some conservative creds, since he's the only one pushing the FairTax.
