I don't think I will be voting for Obama but I do empathize with him. If I met him in a bar I don't think I would befriend him as I don't usually gravitate towards bullshitters and I smelled this on him ever since I first heard his campaign. Please don't judge me for this assessment because I mean in it the best possible way since after all it is a requirement for the position. I chose D.
My problem with the poll is that it asks "would you befriend him if you had no idea who he is."
It is, unfortunately, impossible not to know who he is, so it is impossible to give a good answer to this question.
