1. Other - most of them

 

I can only vote for one option in a DU poll, right?

I think most of them would stop, if "you" didn't have a pro-Trump bumper sticker.

Biden might stop anyway. I should probably pick him in the poll then, I guess. But that isn't how you worded the question.

Trump, DEFINITELY, would not stop.

20. There was a Trump supporting tow-truck driver who refused to aid someone with a Sanders sticker.

3. That's a good point. Should have made that an option.

 

But Chris seemed to be implying that whoever we think is most likely to stop is the candidate who will win the primaries.

4. To be fair, they all have handlers that would probably be telling them NOT to stop

 

because they have to get to the next campaign event.

Unless of course they (the handlers) saw a good photo op.

But I do get Matthews' question and I don't know if he is right that person will win, but I think that is probably who SHOULD win.

15. True. This scenario requires a temporary suspension of disbelief or

 

imagining how they'd react if they weren't famous.

14. I don't know about that. If Warren is the nominee,

 

I think she should double down and choose a female and/or minority running mate.

5. I get the feeling

 

at least one crotchety old candidate would honk as they passed by and wag their finger at you while spittle gushed.......

I'm not sure a woman would stop, just for safety concerns, but would call it in.

10. I think Biden

 

is probably the only one of them who would know how and the only one who ever has done it. I think any of them would render assistance somehow, calling for help or having someone on their staff help.

23. Given that Bernie's former jobs include teacher, psychiatric aide and carpenter

 

Im fairly sure the guy knows how to change a tire.

11. Definitely Biden. He'd see my Obama bumperstcker

 

And give me one for him without asking for a donation because the Obama coalition is family. Anybody else might. The driver would crank up Sister Sledge

12. I think they'd all help in some manner. Biden, would change the tire, give the jacket off his back

 

to warm you, have you call all your family on his cell phone so they wouldn't worry, follow you home to make sure you got there safely, and then have dinner delivered.

Oh, and he'd call the next day to make sure the tire was still ok and ask if you needed a ride anywhere.

19. A college research study years ago on Good Samaritans: Help depended on if pressed for time or not.

 

.

Multiple studies with college students, placed them in a situation where they either had time to kill between classes or whether they had a tight schedule to keep, and could not be late for the engagement. Most of the students would help someone if they had free time and were not pressured to keep an appointment, while most would not if faced with some appointment deadline.
