Especially if he attends a Mormon church, certainly Romney.

Jenna - Obama

Sam - Obama

Larry - Where he lives is important, I'll guess Romney

Wesley - If he lives on the west coast or northeast, Obama, south, Sunbelt or most parts of the Midwest, probably Romney.

Arturo - Obama

David - Obama

Mike: 23 years old, recent college graduate, now unemployed, just quit his job doing pizza delivery but has a huge trust fund from very affluent parents in the Philly suburbs.

Jenny: 27 years old, went to a Christian university for two years before dropping out, works as a receptionist at a local accounting firm in Denver but is hoping to return to college soon. Attends an evangelical charismatic church with a mostly younger congregation, took an abstinence pledge in her teens but doesn't follow it and didn't with her last boyfriend, is pro-life but supports gay marriage, uses pot with her friends including some people in her church small group.

Joe: 33 years old, lives a Seattle suburb, works at a bank. Is not opposed to gay marriage but does not care much about the issue, is vaguely pro-life but considers it a low priority, supports drug legalization but is personally straightedge, reads Ayn Rand and generally adheres to her philosophy. Supported Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012 but was also creeped out by some of the more cult-like supporters. Was engaged last year but ended up breaking it off, is vaguely religious and only attends church on holidays.

Liberal Democrat.  Probably a Tom Barrett and Dennis Kucinich fan.  Definitely Obama, unless he's in a real cynical mood around election time (escort girls start over-charging), in which case he may vote Green.

This sounds like another confused liberal douche, but he also might be a Ron Paul supporter (depends on how cool he is).  Either Obama or a Ron Paul write-in, but there's a strong chance he may not even be sober enough to go out and vote on election day.

Lol! As a former evangelical fundie myself, I can attest that this pretty well shadows countless young females that I've met at church.  The pot-smoking is a bit unlikely, but the abstinence pledge-breaking and dropping out of bible school sounds like pretty typical fare for a 20-something fundie girl nowadays.  Jenny probably isn't into the secular social liberalism/feminism of Democrats, but she also is probably into social justice and left-leaning on fiscal issues.  She's another confused young adult going through a right-of-passage.  If she meets and marries a decent Christian man, she'll evolve into a hallmark-card conservative.  If life continues to be rough, somewhere around 30 she'll go off the deep, stop attending church and become a heinous liberal.  For now, she's a swing voter, but probably leaning Obama this time around.

Another libertariantard.  Most likely Romney, but may go Libertarian or another RP write-in if Paul gets shafted at the RNC and/or if Romney nominates a Palin-esque moonbat for his running mate and the economy is improving anyways.

I know lots of people like this, and they certainly aren't unlikely to use pot (to put it rather mildly.) I have even been with people who have said grace before passing around weed. But I wouldn't call them "fundies" by any stretch, evangelical and fundie are not the same thing, the support of gay marriage alone would disqualify this.

Won't vote.

Won't vote, but I also find it very hard to believe he would work at all.

Hype?  The only thing he has to believe is that Obama is better than Romney, which if that is hype its like me putting on a job application that I can spell.

Except looking at this guy's profile, it would be in his best interest to vote Republican. If for whatever reason he ignores that and votes for Obama, then yes, I'd say he's buying into the hype.

For example, Warren Buffet is buying into the hype.

I'm glad you admit that Republicans are entirely devoted to serving the interests of the wealthier. At least you are aware of this.

However, it is fairly possible that some wealthy people, such as Buffett, would be ready to sacrifice a tiny bit of their enormous wealth for common interest.
