    Candidate Match Game

    2012 Election: The Candidate Match Game - USATODAY.com

    I wouldn't put too much faith in this as far as scientific accuracy but it was interesting to me. I was actually surprised at the results ... still scratching my head over them! Apparently my indecision on some issues registered even with an online quiz!

    Ron Paul - 60.1%
    Newt Gingrich - 46.8%
    Obama - 46.8%

    Romney's last.

    But then this is the same publication that wrote the average Federal employee makes $123,000 a year. I make about half that.

    Well, there's a surprise
    Obama 49%
    Huntsman 47%
    and Ron paul 38%

    And the only points I seem to agree with Paul over are Afghanistan and Defense spending

    I read where Huntsman has dropped out of the race this morning.

    I liked Huntsman but I guess he was too intellectually elite for the majority of the voters. Because apparently being well educated is a bad thing.

    I think he's going to be campaigning for Romney now.

    At least for the GOP, it seems.

    I even registered as a Republican so that I could vote for him in the coming primary.
    Now, what do I do?
