How about

-A poor black woman who voted for Hillary in the 2008 Primary and McCain in the general.


Yeah, I met someone who fit that description.


The most important question to solve this question, does this poor black women approve of Barack Obama? If she says approve, she votes for Obama. Disapproval of Obama, she'd definitely go Romney in the GE.

Votes for Obama, later votes for Christie for President.

Next hypothetical person: White male, 47 years old, but very dirty from living in the woods for the past 30 years. He is registered to vote and has a state ID that is not expired. This man has zero income, kills everything he eats with his own hands, and knows nothing about the world outside of the woods. On election day he wanders into the voting booth and votes for one of these two candidates. Who does he vote for?

In Dallas he'd be for Romney. If he was on one of the coasts likely Obama.

A lot of your ones are kinda hard to say. I think Person 2 is in the Obama camp assuming they vote, but the other 3 are kinda tricky.

Person one seems like a Romney supporter and person three is more likely supporting Obama. Person 4  I would agree is kinda hard to say.

What makes yo think movie fan 1 would go for Obama considering the demographics for action movies. Movie fan 4 is going to be more likely to cast his ballot for Obama then movie fan 1, who seems like typical macho white guy movie taste.
