When I read the thread title abbreviation, I thought I was going to get to do something fun like make a map of the race between them, which would be fantastically interesting. Instead, the OP asks us to choose which one of these most excellent gents we would vote for. Good grief, I've never been asked a more difficult question on Atlas. So, I'm going to wimp out and post my map.
I originally thought Torie and Clarence would split the GOP vote, allowing Gramps to win. But, when I pondered it further, it seems to me Torie would split both votes, as many socially liberal Dems would be inclined to go with Gramps, but they would be satisfied with Torie's social stances and settle for his slightly less right economic stance (Torie scores more to the center than Gramps in his matrix score). Between his stances on energy and immigration and his health care, education and social policies, Torie could pull votes from both sides of the aisle in different regions of the country. But the swing-state results would, in the end, be all over the place! So, taking all this into account, the map of this terribly exciting, and hilarity-filled race, might end up looking something like this:Torie 226Gramps 178Clarence 134
So, when all is said and done, I don't have to choose and neither do you--let the House do it!
The only thing the country could be sure of and unite behind would be, no matter who wins, one hell of an Inauguration Day party.
