The Indefinitive Election Poll
As usual, as opposed to real polls, there is no science involved and the answers should not be taken any more seriously than the questions. However, I promise that I will read all your responses, and I will post the results on this site. With a nod towards my boyhood Chicago, you may vote as many times as you want.
