I asked a friend who he was going to vote for. He said Romney, even though he really liked Ron Paul better. His reasoning was if he voted for Paul, and he assumed he would lose, then Obama would win. An inferior conservative was better than any Democrat.
If there was a third party or independent candidate that had 51% of the voters supporting him, but they all assumed he wouldn't win, he would not be elected, even though he had enough votes.
What a gutless way of thinking. It guarantees that a person who has great leadership skills, but is not of the two major parties will almost never be elected.
November is fast approaching, and as long as we settle for second best, we will continue to be ruled with incompetence.
