John Hawkins at Right Wing News posted results from a poll, asking for the candidates that conservative bloggers would be most likely to support.
I was a participant.
Yes, I know. Who knew that I was a conservative blogger? Conservative, sure. But a blogger? That's a stretch. At least, it'd be as stretch to consider me a serious blogger. Or a blogger whose opinion anyone would care about.
Still, I participated. And the results are here.
Who did I vote for? Haley Barbour.
Why? Well, the poll didn't ask that. But, Barbour is a conservative with experience and a successful track record. A longer track record than many of the others on the list.
My guy made the middle of the pack. Which means he's not the flavor of the day. Like Jindal. Or Palin. Or Christie.
I could vote for those. But, in all honesty, they don't have a long a track record as Barbour. And they aren't all as conservative as I'd like. Well, Palin might be, but Jindal or Christie aren't as far right as I'd like.
If Barbour ends up being the GOP nominee, I'd be thrilled. But, based on that poll, I'd be one of only a few. If one of the others end up being the GOP nominee, I could support them. At least, much more than whoever the Democrats end up nominating.
