Political Intensity

I am not looking to start an argument ... just a little PT poll to consider the findings of a New York Times article.

Answer this question - how excited are you to vote in the upcoming elections? Use a scale of 1 (not excited) to 3 (very excited) and state your politcal affiliation.

I am a Democrat who is very excited to vote this year - a 3.

I am a Democrat who is so unexcited about voting in my new hometown that I haven't re-registered after moving. Although there is a tax measure I want to vote against... ...I really should.

I kind of sit in the middle. I'd give myself a 2 on the excitement scale

I'd say 0 - I don't vote because I have yet to feel moved by an issue or a politician of any party enough to justify the increased risk of selection for jury duty.

Normally I'm a 1. I have seen so much negative advertising this year that I am actively looking for independant candidates for whom to vote since I am equally disgusted with the democratic and the repulican candidates. Thus I am a temporary 3.

12:54, shame on you! If you were brought to trial, who would serve on _your_ jury? With rights come some responsibilities.

hey, I've done jury duty. it was inconvenient. I won't say it was "fun," but it sure was not boring. I learned a lot about the system that couldn't be well-conveyed in high school social studies.

I agree 12:54 shame on you. Lord help us if everyone thought like you. Maybe you really haven't read about the issues, I can't imagine no one finding something worth while to vote for.

Personally I used to think I was a dem but I can't stand what has happened to this party. I also not to hip on increasing taxes for screwed up social programs that need to be reformed not given more money. I feel like I'm a little of rep, dem and liberal. I'm still unsure of how I will be voting this time around.

I am excited that I have the right to vote. I lean Republican and my hope is that the Dems take the House but the GOP keeps the senate. We need divided government for a while. I also want the Dems to shut the @#$% up for a while, and giving them the house is the best thing for that.
