Do you Stand with Rand or with President Obama. Only two choices here. [View all]

Last edited Wed Jun 12, 2013, 10:52 AM - Edit history (2)

this is a confidential poll, so please answer honestly.
No one is tracking anything.

I stand with the President.

edited to put sarcasm smilie in what was obvious an ironic joke.

edit to add- I did not realize that automatically the poll adds a no opinion or no vote choice.
I only made the two
So I guess there are 3 choices, but my poll stated only 2

25 votes, 21 passes | Time left: Unlimited
I stand with Rand
7 (28%)
