DU is a diverse group of people, not just Sanders supporters on one side and Hillary on the other [View all]


In an attempt to bring just a tiny bit of civility I am creating this poll to show at one time or another many of us who are at odds now were probably rooting for the same candidate in the past. Hopefully no one will hijack this and try to divide us but rejoice in the fact that we do have a lot in common regardless of being in different camps this time around. And in the future we may be on the same side with a candidate even though we are not now and at odds with people we are in the same camp with today. Lets keep that in mind.

Sorry the poll is incomplete but I am only given 10 slots and so I have to place the top five I saw posted from the last election. I am including Kucinich over Dodd because I remember him being more popular here on DU than Dodd was.

If your candidate is not listed feel free to list them in the comment section.
