I'm surprised no one has made such a topic yet, considering the election itself is tomorrow.

So, tomorrow, the people in my country are going to elect themselves a new president. (I won't be participating, however, because I am not of voting age.) Beyond that, plenty of seats in both Congress and various state legislatures are open, and people are also voting on certain referendums. (For example, in my state, there is going to be a vote on whether or not the state's income tax should be abolished.)

Personally though, I'm supporting neither McCain nor Obama. Plenty of people my age are crazy about Obama though. I really don't regret the fact that I can't vote. Seeing that my state is already in the Democratic Party's pocket anyways, there is no real point to vote in this election, unless one happens to hail from a "swing state".

So anyways, I bid good luck to both Mr. McCain and Mr. Obama. Either way, this country is still screwed.

I'm too young to vote, but in my city we had this thing called Youth Vote so kids can vote(for statistics). In the statistics, about 95% voted for Obama, 5% for McCain. Also, for my city there are about 20 city propositions, and 12 state propositions, so it's one of the longest ballots in history.

Of course not. Most people who are against same-sex marriage will vote for McCain, because 7 out of 10 voters who will vote no for California Prop. 8 will also vote for Obama.

Psssh, same-sex marriage, probably the only reason I would vote for McCain would be to get that removed, but other then that, I would vote Obama if I were a US peep.

Obama '08!

He is the only one who is really offering change from the failed Republican Policies of the past 8 years (Don't try to blame the last two years of democratic congress, they were facing a hostile president and filibusters in the senate and weren't able to get much done, hopefully all that will be fixed this time around, and we can start to get this country back on track.)

Yes, but most of that group does neither believes in evolution nor taxation

Yet, from a historical standpoint, the "culture wars" standpoint that defined the 2000-2008 years in American politics is shifting towards; "change" which is an integral part of each candidates rhetoric.

Most people who vote for McCain believe in 75%+ of what he says... 8-)

I did early voting last Wednesday and voted for Obama. I'm in North Carolina, which is one of the "battle ground" states. Currently in NC, McCain is ahead with 50/49 (49 for Obama), so it's VERY close and it could EASILY go the other way tomorrow, since there is a lot of people who didn't do early voting. The city I live in has historically been 50/50, whereas the area where I used to live in NC was 65/35 (Republican/Democrat).

I think the same can be said about Obama supporters. Lots of herd mentality in this election.

McCain. He follows more of my beliefs than Obama does. Also, I really don't like "spreading the wealth."

I would vote for obama if I lived there and was of voting age as he seems to have better ideas. Mccain is also apparently sick with cancer so if he died during his term the US would be run by the vice president that lady who partnered with him and she would be the worest possible person.

Change has been a part of every candidates rhetoric for the past 30 years. Nobody's every done anything though to change it. Heck Regan and Kennedy are probably the only two President's that I can think of that have had a major effect on America (Kennedy for the Space Program and Regan for beginning ending the Cold War).

Personally I voted for McCain because I thought that his personal beliefs and experience (both as a Senator and a Veteran) made him the better choice. Not to mention the people that Obama has placed himself with in the past (Ayers, Wright etc).

And who do I support?
