The webOS Nation Straw Poll

Today is November 6th, 2012, election day in the United States of America. Today our long national nightmare of rallies, attack ads, yard signs, strangers knocking on your door and calling your phone comes to an end. Maybe. We hope. It's hard to believe that this campaign has been going all the way back to early April 2011 when former Governor Mitt Romney declared his intention for the White House. And, of course, there's President Barack Obama, who's hoping to secure a second four year term in the Oval Office. But today, after all the ballots are cast, it can finally be over and we can get back to talking about smartphones and tablets and the Kardashians. You know, the important things.

So with emotions running high today, we thought we'd have a little bit of fun. It's a presidential straw poll! We've done our best to stay out of the politics here (excepting railing against SOPA, because that was just stupid), but today we're dragging it to the forefront because we really can't help ourselves.

Actually, we can help ourselves. Go vote. It's important. Except, you know, go vote in real life. This poll's not important at all. Regardless of how the election turns out, tomorrow's another day, and maybe we can come back together and remember that we're all in this together. Besides, in the end no matter who is elected and how the ballot issues are decided, the world's ending before they'll take office anyway.
