OK, obviously I haven't added a poll in a while. How do you get it to ignore all the independents and place the Dem and GOP first?

I tried that the first time. Left them all blank and it still dumped the Dem and GOP way down.

ok, so when you have speculative Independents who are in a primary, you're gonna have a pulldown menu for them on the Independent line for some reason. Thus Ron Paul being on this poll, and being listed as a speculative independent seems to be a problem here

in the category of hypotheticals from the WaPo/ABC poll:

24. How about if the candidates were (Barack Obama, the Democrat) and ([ITEM], the Republican), and Ron Paul running as an independent candidate for president - for whom would you vote? Would you lean toward (Obama), ([ITEM]), or toward Paul?

Registered voters
Obama 42, Romney 32, Paul 21
Obama 43, Gingrich 32, Paul 21

and the CNN/ORC results have to be Obama's best national h2h numbers ever, probably including 2008. And all that with a 49/48 approve/disapprove

That poll is a greater mound of sh*t than would be produced if you gave Jerry Falwell an enema.

It's not that far out of line with the ABC/WaPo poll done about the same time. Still, some further data from other sources is needed.

It really depresses me that more Americans would vote for Donald Trump than Bernie Sanders and Rocky Anderson put together.

On the other hand, Gary Johnson outpolls Michael Bloomberg, which is cause for celebration.

I'm pretty sure more Americans know who Donald Trump is than Bernie Sanders and Rocky Anderson put together.

That's true. That said, why would anyone who knows anything about Trump want to vote for him?

Because there is an abundance of morons who vote.

Yeah, Jill Stein is currently tied for second! (I know I'm the only one who picked her, just don't mention that fact!)

Should Rocky be listed on this page yet? I just went to his facebook page and it says he is running for the Justice Party nomination.

The nomination is just a formality. There are no other candidates.

This is actually rather tough considering that I don't care for the vast majority of these would-be candidates.

Huntsman > Johnson > Anderson > Stein > Bloomberg > Sanders > Goode > Roemer > Trump

Yeah, let's go with that. I think I'd probably only really consider the first three.

I wouldn't vote for any of the others, even if they ran unopposed.

Can't I write-in Jack Fellure?

You know a line-up is bad when a *Catholic* thinks that the Prohibitionist sounds better.
