Who Would You Vote for President? (Poll Results)

Donald Trump Hillary CLinton Gary John Dr. Jill Stein

Last week, we conducted an unscientific online poll regarding the upcoming U.S. Presidential Election which is less than 90 days away. I must say, for me, I am undecided and leaning toward doing a write-in.

While this wasn’t as big a landslide as I thought it would be (like our annual ice cream poll), here’s what you told us.

Out of 192 votes cast, Hillary Clinton came away with 57.81% of the vote (111 votes).

Some takeaways:

  • In recent elections, the Democratic candidate has won 70%+ of the vote in Alexandria, Virginia.
  • In 2008, Gary Johnson received .75% of the vote and Dr. Jill Stein received .25% of the vote in Alexandria, Virginia. In this poll, Governor Johnson received almost as many votes as Mr. Trump.
  • With Trump at 13.54% (26 votes), that is about half the percentage that Mitt Romney and John McCain received in Alexandria in the last two elections. This percentage is also about a third of what Bush/Cheney received in Alexandria in 2000 & 2004.
