Wednesday Poll: Last Week's Results And This Week's Poll

The votes are in.

Last week we asked: which is the more unlikely and cognitively jarring outcome? Was it (a) Nawaz Sharif becoming the champion of the judiciary, or (b) Asif Zardari resembling a conciliatory statesman? In a closely fought battle, Asif Zardari's newfound statemanship narrowly edged Nawaz Sharif's naked political opportunism, 28-23.

With the primaries in Texas and Ohio this week, we'll keep the topical nature of the poll going. We want to know who you would most like to see as President of the U.S. (irrespective of whether or not you can vote). Is it Hillary Clinton, John McCain, or Barack Obama? Tell us what you think.

Last week's poll was interesting, mainly because it was a really tough decision - kind of like picking the lesser of the two evils, in my opinion anyway.

Barack Obama, regardless of any perceptions people might have over his "aggressive Pakistan policy," [which I think was taken out of context], would make a far better president than Hillary Clinton. Moreover, although I don't mind McCain, you would have to remember that he may not purge the remnants of the neocons from power - therefore, voters should make the decision based on what kind of ADMINISTRATION and subsequent influences the new president would have - also in the case of Obama versus Clinton - who would get the Dems back in the White House? In my opinion, that is without question, Barack Obama. :)

i agree. i think obama would make the best president, both for america and the rest of the world. its amazing how little attention is being paid to shit he actually says, rather than how he says it. he has incredibly well developed views on foreign policy for instance, but people, in the US at least, love dealing in sound bites so they're not getting the full picture. he thus gets written off as someone who speaks well but is vacuous, when it coulnd't be further from the truth.

I would be amazed if anyone voted for someone other than Obama

as things stand at present, obama is leading but is far from the unanimous choice. mccain and hillary have pulled a combined 5 out of the total of 15 votes so far.

but yes, the associated press *is* projecting a win for obama in the Five Rupees primary.

for today's poll, how about: none of the above.
sorry, i'm a hard core skeptic.

how come in zardari's case it's 'newfound statemanship' whilst sharif is branded with 'naked political opportunism'?

Ahsan said...

because in NS' case, it is a political stance whereas in zardari's case, it is a change in disposition.
