If The Election Was Today, Who Would You Vote For?

As the Republicans stump for primary votes across America and President Obama gave his State of the Union, who do you like?

 

With the fast-approaching in Ohio, the political machine is in full gear for the presidential race.

Current President Barack Obama got his re-election campaign started off with Tuesday's fiery State of the Union address, challenging both sides of the aisle to make changes for a better country.

Four Republican candidates are battling it out to see who will get the ticket for the GOP. Sen. Rick Santorum took Iowa. Gov. Mitt Romney snagged New Hampshire. Speaker Newt Gingrich took South Carolina by storm. And national polls say Ron Paul has the best chance to beat President Obama.

Even though November is still a ways off, we want to know who of the final five you want to see in office and why?

Is Obama doing a good job so far? Tell us how in the comments section.

Is Romney the best person to right the ship? Can Gingerich get the votes? You tell us!

Where did you come up with these stats? Fresh from the RNC..... First off from the US Dept of Labor the unemployment rate is 8.5% as of Dec 2011 not 9.1. I assume the rest of your data is incorrect and/or excaggerated as well. In case you are not aware we've been digging out of the hole created by the Bush administration since the economic calapse of 2007. While unemployment peeked in mid 2009 it has been trending down ever since. Don't forget how we got in this mess. It wasn't Obama it was the policies of the Bush administration, tax cuts we didn't pay for, wars we didn't pay for, a medicare prescription bill that was never paid for.
