Democrats and Independents Emphasized: Who For President?
12,000 votes are now in. Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard are leading the pack by substantial numbers. Warren, O’Rourke and Harris are ranging about 100 votes apart from each other. Jesse Ventura is keeping pace with Joe Biden. Cory Booker and Undecided keep trading places. And Hillary Clinton has yet to register 1%.
I did not include Castro or Gillibrand, and some others, due to my observation of their performance in the Move-On.com poll among its membership or the Daily Kos poll (where you can vote more than once). In this straw poll you can only vote one time, so it’s a good one!
The poll was created on the day Gabbard said she was going to run and is headed towards its fifth day of existence. Once created, I published it on multiple veteran, union and minority advocacy social media sites. Supporters of the respective candidates have spread this poll accordingly throughout the Internet.
For the record, I, the creator of this poll, am a longtime Bernie Sanders supporter.
Keep voting folks — let’s see where it goes.
