I know Internet surveys are meaningless, but they can still be interesting. This one on the Army Times website is one of those cases:
If you were going to vote for president right now, which candidate would you support?
Ambassador Carol Moseley Braun 2.91 % (654)
Gen. Wesley Clark (Ret.) 26.86 % (6,036)
Gov. Howard Dean 11.28 % (2,535)
Sen. John Edwards 15.93 % (3,579)
Rep. Dick Gephardt 0.70 % (158)
Sen. John Kerry 5.74 % (1,289)
Rep. Dennis Kucinich 1.05 % (237)
Sen. Joe Lieberman 0.66 % (149)
Rev. Al Sharpton 1.18 % (265)
President George W. Bush 33.68 % (7,568)
Total votes: 22470
It’s especially amusing that Carol Moseley Braun is ahead of Dick Gephardt, Joe Lieberman, and Dennis Kucinich. One also wonders if the numbers are unduly affected by inclusion of titles with the names. I suspect Braun’s stature is enhanced with the title “Ambassador,” which makes her sound as if she knows something about foreign policy. I know “General” is adding some clout to Wes Clark.
