- Who do you think the next Republican presidential candidate will be?
- Who do you think the next Democrat presidential candidate will be?
- Who do you think the next president will be?
- Which candidate would you actually vote for?
As promised, here are the results!
Question # 1 Results: Who do you think the next Republican presidential candidate will be?
(Remember, this is not someone they would necessarily vote for, but who they predict will be chosen.)
This looks like a pie no one really wants to eat, which pretty much describes the Republican party right now. All over the place with both its messaging and agenda.
That said, Ben Carson gets the most votes as the prediction for the next Republican candidate. It's not a landslide victory, but in the end he edges out the competition.
Question # 2 Results: Who do you think the next Democrat presidential candidate will be?
This pie is a little less chaotic, with Hillary not being too big of a surprise as the popular pick.
Question #3 Results: Who will be the next president?
Again, the predictions say Hillary, with Ben Carson and Bernie Sanders being the next favorites to win.
But here's where things get interesting. The next question is about who people would vote for if they voted today, and check out the candidates.
Question #4 Results: Who would you vote for today?Are you ready for this one?
Predicted favorite to win, Hillary, has exactly zero votes, two new names appear on the list of possible nominees, and the most votes going to a named candidate are voting for someone who isn't officially in the running yet: Mitt Romney.
Now, before you scoff, remember that it's not to late for him to be thrown into the mix. If the Republican party doesn't have faith in a candidate going into the convention, they can vote Romney in as their candidate, which would definitely cause a big stir and make loads and loads of headlines.
But the most surprising part of this poll is that the ONLY name on this last list that is a front runner on any of the other lists in Bernie Sanders. No votes for Ben Carson, none for Donald Trump, and none for any of the other predicted candidates.
So do with that what you will. ;)
