Positive Political Poll Update – The Affirmation Spot

campaign08.jpgAbout four weeks ago, I began taking an unscientific poll asking readers a political question not being posed in the myriad of professional political polls being conducted right now.

The question was:

Which major presidential candidate do you believe has the most positive message for America in 2008 and why?

 Here are the results to-date. Please note that I began the poll before the slew of recent withdrawls. Nonetheless, the results are somewhat surprising for two of the five candidates still in this race.

Candidate with the most positive message:

  1. Barack Obama          43%
  2. Ron Paul                 21%
  3. Mike Huckabee        12%
  4. Hillary Clinton            6%
  5. John Edwards            6%
  6. Mitt Romney              6%
  7. John McCain              3%
  8. Rudy Guiliani              0%

As to the question of why the selected candidate is the most positive in this year’s campaign.

  1. Believability            18%
  2. Integrity                15%
  3. Hope                     15%
  4. Policies                  12%
  5. Truthfulness           12%
  6. Vision                    12%
  7. Principles                 9%
  8. Faith                       3%
