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).
- 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.
