    This question is for registered Republicans or those who generally view themselves as Republicans.

    If John McCain named Joe Lieberman as his running mate, would you vote for him?

    I respect Joe Lieberman a whole lot more then John McCain. So I would have no trouble at all.

    I'm tempted to write in "John McClane" but I'm sure they would just apply the vote to someone else. ;)

    I'm really not sure what I'm going to do come November. I have yet to miss a national election, midterm or not, but I may just leave it blank and vote for state offices, only.

    Actually if Lieberman was on the ticket I would have a lot of respect for McCain, because his party will throw him out on his arse in 2012. I am actually warming to McCain this country needs someone more middle of the road than far right or far left, and I always thought of McCain as a liberal Republican

    Registered Independent here, so I won't vote in your poll.

    However, Lieberman is so far right of Obama (or better put, Obama is so far let of Lieb) that I can't see how his being a VP would casue someone to cross the aisle. They may be disgruntled, but I would think the choice would still be clear to those that already favor McCain.

    It would basically be moderate Democrats vs. liberal Democrats. One of the two will win so I'd still vote for the least liberal.

    I would vote for this ticket. I think this would be a good moderate ticket for the republicans but I do not think McCain will do it because of the far right wing.

    Obama's the most liberal Dem Senator. Everyone's far to the right of him.

    I'm not a registered Republican but since I've come out and said I am voting for my fellow Arizonan I voted in the poll.

    I've never been a registered member of eithe partty, but have tended towards the Conservative candidates.

    Since the choice is McCain or Obama, I'll take the less Liberal guy, with or without Lieberman. I like Lieberman, so it wouldn't be that difficult of a choice for me.

    I'm not a registered Republican. But I have never voted Democrat. I can't bring myself to vote for people with their ideals. If I ever found a Democrat that was conservative fiscally and socially, I might vote for them.

    Ok...Here's the deal.

    I would hate the McCain/Liebermann ticket.

    But what's the alternative? Obama and whomever else?

    Don't think so.

    It would be a lesser of two evils thing.....

    McCain was just a terrible choice for Republicans. We had junk to choose from this year. Just like the Dems the last couple of elections.

    What would Republicans gain from voting for Obama or another party? Would they really want a guy like Obama as president?

    This poll has been eye-opening for me.

    It makes me think McCain has a better shot of winning than I may have previously thought. It seems that Obama is really making the right-leaners rally around McCain.

    He can't hide the fact that he's an ultra-liberal.

    But I think Obama wins going away. He "looks" and "sounds" more presidential. I don't mean that in a bad way.

    He's charismatic...he's a great speaker...he carries himself in a confident manner.

    McCain just looks old. He's quiet....He's frail looking.

    McCain gets my vote because I try to vote for the candidate that most closely matches my beliefs. Obama isn't even close.

    Of course, libertarians are close....but really, third parties have virtually no shot. A vote for one of them, is a vote for Obama, IMO.

    Liebrman and McCain.... now that's a ticket to laugh at. And not to be too discouraging, but I wouldn't count on that. Not to mention, Obama hasn't started his campaign attacks on McCain. It's not time yet, nor has be chosen a VP.

    What I find funniest is that Liberals would "laugh at" the most possible Liberal ticket the Republicans could run.

    Seems to me that's a win-win proposition.

    I guess not. I admit I don't get it though. Never quite have grasped partisanship.

    You can call them whatever you want.

    Eventually, one day... you'll actually get it correct.
