Brandon: Interested, especially in some of the answers from the site's right-leaning members:

Since you asked, this is my snapshot-in time-response.

Romney > Obama (They make the least difference.)

Obama > Santorum (And it would be deliciously sweet to see the tsunami roll in. How bad is it that this is the scenario I'm guiltily hoping for at this point?)

Third party > Obama or Gingrich (Meh.)

Paul/lulz > everyone

Romney V. Obama: I would vote 3rd party. I see almost 0 difference between the 2 overall.

Santorum V. Obama: I would vote 3rd party. But I'll admit, Obama doesn't scare me as much as Santorum.

Newt V. Obama: I would vote 3rd party. Though I would perfer Newt because his flat tax plan is better than Obama's tax plan.

Paul V. Obama: Paul. I think he's way better than Obama.

I'm beginning to root for Santorum just to see the coservative vs. liberal rhetoric that will ensue in the campaign.

Santorum is an imbecile, and if there were any doubt, he proved it during tonight's Arizona debate. Paul and Romney both did very well; Santorum and Gingrich were very weak (especially Santorum).

By the way, did anyone else watch the debate, and thus catch the guy (outside the debate venue) with the big sign that red "Frothy Santorum," which the camera actually zeroed in on, toward the end?

The only matchup where I'd even consider voting major party is Obama v. Paul, but I'd still vote for Rocky Anderson.

If Gary Johnson is nominated by the LP I'd lean towards voting for him. I'd vote for Paul if he won the nomination but we all know that won't happen, and in a matchup with any of the other choices I'd consider Obama the less-crappy option. Ideologically I could consider Romney but knowing his recent past I don't think I could bring myself to vote for him.

I've been half-heartedly supporting Mitt for months now, and I'll half-heartedly support him in the general.

I could vote for Paul if he got the nod. We disagree on some of my key issues, but less so than Obama.

If Santorum gets it... I'll probably suck it up and vote for him, unless the Constitution party nominates someone really good. (Unlikely.)

Under no circumstances, even a two-way runoff, would I ever consider voting for the dispicible excuse for a human being that is Newt Gingrich.

Finally we have an online poll to prove Paul is more electable than any other Republican.

No, thanks to Obama's fascist drug policies! RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT!

In all of the above scenarios I plan to vote Third Party (assuming that Jill Stein is the Green Party nominee).

As a federal employee, the GOP platform of gutting the federal govt doesn't exactly appeal to me.

After the U S backed and orchestrated overthrow and murder of Gaddafi, and Hillary's "We came, we saw, he's dead" response, I have no respect or support for the Dems foreign policy (not that I have any for the GOP's).

The Libertarians are also for gutting the govt, while the Constitution party would be for both gutting the govt and most likely murdering foreign leaders.

Rocky Anderson struck me as an egomaniac as Mayor, and I would expect much more of the same from him as President.

What I wonder is, how many people who say they will vote third party in these polls actually will? My guess is hardly any.

Nothing says I will either, but a track record of voting for Fulani, Perot, Dole, Phillips, Cobb and Nader should give some idea how I vote (besides for losers).

Considering this is OC, I'm surprised at how poorly Obama is doing in these match-up polls, he doesn't crack 50% in any of them at this point.

Although considering his presidency has been a train-wreck since day one I guess it ain't that surprising.

Ray LaHood says his ballot was wrong. He wanted to vote in the GOP primary to vote for his son who is running as a elector for Newt Gingrich.

He added, however, that he will vote for President Obama in November. Is this an endorsement or not?

Under Illinois law, presidential primary voters vote directly for delegates, not for the presidential candidates themselves. Illinois ballots do have a line for voters to select a presidential candidate, though that election is strictly a beauty contest. Delegates are awarded through direct voting.

So LaHood's vote technically would have been for his son as a Gingrich delegate, not for Gingrich.

"I did not vote in the presidential race because I'm obviously going to vote for Barack Obama," LaHood said. "But I was going to vote for my son."

7 parts conservative, 3 parts liberals. Both will come home.

I really doubt that 30 percent of the people claiming they would vote for Gary Johnson are part of Obama's coalition (I assume that's what you're trying to say there). Probably more like 5-10 percent.

I doubt 7 of the popular know who Gary Johnson is or what the Libertarian platform is.
