Poll question: Which candidate has the most real personality?
Which candidate is least afraid to put him/herself out there for all to judge? Which candidate is least wooden? Which candidate gives you the feeling that if you were talking with him/her in your kitchen, they would be similar to what you see and hear on tv?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Biden - hands down.
The only other ones that don't orate are Richardson, and usually Obama.

3. After seeing the video of behind the
scenes at the campaign, I'd say Edwards.

4. Nice sexist push poll.
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 07:06 AM by MethuenProgressive
The males are listed to by their last names, the female by her first name.
Very clever.

6. how is it sexist?
My guess on why Hillary was by her first name is that is how she is advertising herself as a candidate, as such it makes the most sense to use that

13. Sweet Jesus, will this question never die?
Hillary's campaign has very deliberately "branded" it using her first name. It's how their preferred name.

Some people just can't get that big stick out of their butt -- and just to be clear, I'm not referring to you.

I gave Biden the vote in this one. In a field of great personalities, he's the personality guy. :)

20. Everyone else is a little too careful about what they say.
Biden says it like it is without the filters. I'm sure they're there filters at some level, it just seems spontaneous and authentic.

Kucinich is runner up though.

Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 06:59 PM by gateley
Biden, Dodd and Richardson seem to be more of Who They Are rather than a Campaign Persona. Of the Top Three, I think Obama is the most real.

Biden is definitely what you see is what you get.

Edit to add, people who have attended Biden gatherings always seem to mention how 'real' he is. To be fair to Obama and Hillary, because of the size of the crowds, I'm not sure their supporters have the opportunity to actually 'meet' with them as the supporters of candidates who draw smaller crowds have the ability to do.
