Who Are They Voting For?

Reason asks some folks:

As Campaign 2004 entered its home stretch, we asked a variety of policy wonks, journalists, thinkers, and other public figures in the reason universe to reveal for whom they are voting this fall, for whom they pulled the lever last time around, their most embarrassing presidential vote, and their favorite president of all time.
The respondents come down on all sides. Snippets from the responses:
  • Glenn Garvin:
    2004 vote: I live in Florida. My votes are randomly assigned based on the interaction of our voting machines, the Miami-Dade Election Commission, and passing UFOs.
  • Glenn (no surprise here)Reynolds:
    2004 vote: Most likely George Bush, and for one reason: the war. I�m having trouble trusting Kerry on that.
  • Robert Higgs:

    2004 vote: I never vote. I don�t wish to soil my hands.

  • Jude Wanniski:
    2004 vote: I�m leaning toward Kerry because I prefer recession to imperialist war, but Bush might tempt me back by firing Cheney, Rumsfeld, and company.
The whole piece is entertaining and instructive. Go read it.
Via Ogged and Matthew Yglesias both of whom think there might be some trends hidden in this stuff.
