Voters' Picks: The Storm Changed My Vote from Romney to Obama [View all]

" Just days before Nov. 6, Yahoo! asked voters to reveal which candidate they're backing -- Barack Obama or Mitt Romney or another candidate -- and, briefly, why. Here are one voter's thoughts.

'Until the storm hit the East Coast, I was leaning toward voting for Romney. I'm an old guy who cast his first presidential vote for Harry Truman, and mostly for Democrats who ran in subsequent years. Until this past weekend, I was frankly not thrilled with either of the 2012 candidates.

I don't like Obama's Chicago pals from his early political years; they just seemed a bit too radical for me. That drew me to Romney, despite the fact that he was born too rich, and seems to have no clue about what it means to be struggling in today's lousy economy.

Then came Sandy. Obama immediately went to the disaster areas and set positive recovery measures to work. Romney did photo ops of carrying some Campbell soup cans. He still doesn't have a clue, and he lost my vote.'

-- Ted Sherman, Los Angeles "
