Ryan: 53 years old, works in a shipyard in South Boston. Unionized, practicing Catholic, married with one grown child in college and one in high school. Recovering alcoholic, but has begun to have a beer again once in a while. Pro-life, undecided on same-sex marriage (used to strongly oppose it). Approved of Romney as governor and voted for him in 2002, but by  2006 somewhat disapproved of him.

Maybe Romney, possibly Virgil Goode.

Isaac: 68 years old, lives in Long Island and commutes to Wall Street. Jewish, multi-millionare investment banker. Divorced twice. Socially tolerant/liberal (has a gay son), but very hawkish and pro-Israel (but leans towards exiting Afghanistan in 2014). Fiscally moderate; opposes Dodd-Frank but supports reinstating Glass-Steagall, supports Social Security reform but also supports universal health care.

Rocky Anderson.

Allison: 38 years old, lives in Anaheim, California, works as a manager of a local Target. Half white and half Vietnamese; her father was a Vietnam veteran who brought a wife from South Vietnam. Married with two young children. Former Catholic, now a member of a Methodist church.

Maybe Romney? Depends on her stance on war in general. Considering her father is a veteran, she may have witnessed firsthand his possible PTSD.

I'm gonna say Obama.

Overly-unneeded analysis of a hypothetical voter.

Obama.

As opposed to just shouting out a name?

Sorry, I know reading is hard for some people. Just sound it out, next time.

Was 5 paragraphs necessary though? I could understand a few sentences, but that's over-analysis.

I never crowned myself chief of anything. I also never said that you analysis was bad, it was rather interesting, but I just found it strange that you used that much analysis. My apologies.

Obama.

At the bottom of the main board is a place where we've all collectively made over 350,000 posts arguing over the leadership of an imaginary country. I don't think anyone on this forum has the right to accuse anyone else of making unneeded posts. Tongue

I mostly agree with Ryan's analysis, but if it matters, Isaac is Jewish and Allison is Vietnamese (IIRC they're more Republican)

So my analysis was both "rather interesting," and "overly-unneeded."? Umm, okay. Thanks, I guess.

Doing more work than one needs to do isn't inherently a bad thing.

Uhh, yeah, don't think this one needs any exit poll analysis. She's voted Democrat in every election she's ever voted in (except 1 vote 14 years ago). Don't see how she could be anything but an Obama voter in '12.


You mean him and not her.

More than likely, this man will vote for Romney. If he has voted Republican in three elections, Obama's four years in office probably wouldn't be enough to sway his vote. If he is catholic, and especially an older catholic, he is probably strongly opposed to the Obama administration's new rules on contraception access. The only thing that might sway him is the Ryan budget, which will drastically restructure many federal safety nets (i.e. medicare vouchers). If Ryan becomes Romney's running mate, there is a good chance he may vote Obama, but barring that I think he's a solid Romney voter.

How are they "lean" and not just regularly Romney and Obama? Person 1 seems like a Mike Naso fella and person 2 seems like he'll strongly support Obama since all of the artists listed with the exception of Pink Floyd all seem to have fans that traditional support the Democratic party. Also what would you say my movie fans and Miinesota guy vote for in the upcoming election?
