Poll question: Would You Walk Out In A Snowstorm, or Rainstorm To Vote For The Dem Nominee In November?
Come November, if the weather is horrible on election day where you live, would you still try to make it out to vote for the nominee?

I see a lot of posts saying that they wouldn't vote for Obama or Hillary if he or she was the nominee, but how many would just be willing to vote for either of them, but only if it didn't require too much effort.

The last three elections I've voted in, I've been lucky that I've had perfect weather to get out and vote with. I can't imagine having to trudge through snow or ice or rain to get to the polling booth, but I would definitely do it for my candidate.

The other one, well, depends on how much snow is outside.

How about you?

I'll go out to vote no matter what Irwin Allen disaster movie type situation is out there in November.

I do anything I can to make sure angry old insane Old Man McCain is not elected.

7. In the end
you vote for the democrat no matter who that may be because the other choice is much scarier.

Anything to cast my vote! (In reality, that's a pretty hollow boast--I only need to walk two blocks. But it's the sentiment that counts.)
