I’ve been talking to a few people about qualities people look for when trying to rank candidates who have the same political ideology when it comes to issues. I am talking about attributes like authenticity, charisma, experience and toughness to name just a few.
Along with some help, I am going to give a one through ten ranking of the candidates in at least 12 non-issue categories. I say “at least 12” because I welcome your opinion of what non-issue important qualities or attributes you look at. Some will be more subjective than others, and everything about it is completely unscientific.
So, to continue the unscientific-ness of this experiment, I think it is time for another poll. As I have said before web polls like this tend to be more of a demonstration of organization than a truly meaningful anything. I am just curious to see what happens, and how it will correspond to the rankings.
And don’t forget, leave a comment or email me with non-issue attributes you like in a candidate.

Please keep in mind, despite my attempt to limit voting to one vote, it was much easier to vote more than once than I thought it would be. If I do a future poll, I will correct that.
I am going to reiterate, this is simply for fun. There is no scientific value to this poll. There is no reason to interpret the results. I was initially interested in how social media would be used to get word out if getting the word out was important to a campaign. A huge amount of people came to the website from Facebook.
Each campaign was notified within minutes of the poll’s posting. The Entenza and Rukavina campaigns were the first to post a facebook link. Maybe there is a correlation to that and the results?
You should be limited to one vote, but check back for results in about a week. The end time all depends on when I have time to end it next weekend. Thanks for voting.
