"Somebody Else" Makes a Good Showing

KBND-AM's on-line presidential poll found Republican nominee-apparent John McCain in the lead with 32% -- not a big surprise, considering KBND's all-right-wing-all-the-time talk show lineup.

KBND-AM's on-line presidential poll found Republican nominee-apparent John McCain in the lead with 32% -- not a big surprise, considering KBND's all-right-wing-all-the-time talk show lineup.


What was at least somewhat surprising, however, was who came in second. "Would prefer another candidate" racked up 25% of the vote, signifying that many participants in the unscientific poll aren't terribly enthusiastic about McCain or either of the Democrats.

Barack Obama polled 17% of the votes, with Hillary Clinton getting only 9%. Republicans Alan Keyes, Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul got a smattering.
