Vice-Presidential Poll Results

Starting on June 20, I ran a poll on the homepage of this blog which asked, "Who should Senator John McCain choose as his vice-presidential running mate?" These are the final results.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney led with 21.9 percent.

Sarah Palin, Alaska's governor, was second with 15.1 percent. She was my personal favorite, and I didn't even vote in the poll!

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal (GIN-dle) ran third with 12.3 percent.

There was a four-way tie for fourth place between Mississippi governor Haley Barbour, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Connecticut senator Joe Lieberman, and "Other." Each received 11.0 percent.

Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty and Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina tied for a distant eighth place with 2.7 percent.

Bringing up the rear was Florida governor Charlie Crist with 1.4 percent.

It goes without saying that this was not a scientific poll.

Thanks to all who took the time to participate. I haven't yet decided what the topic of my next poll will be, but stay tuned.
