PRoBrum Primary Delivers Boost to McCain

Hot on the heels of Iowa and New Hampshire, the People's Republic of Birmingham Primary delivered a boost to the McCain campaign after the GoToQuiz candidate selector gave him a decisive victory over fellow Republican rival Mike Huckabee. Unfortunately, both the Republican and Democratic parties have stripped the People's Republic of Birmingham of all its delegates due to the technicality of it not being part of the United States. Bill Richardson, who was given a boost by finishing fourth behind unknown Democratic hopeful Chris Dodd, has given up his Presidential bid in protest (although some reports suggest his poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire were the real reason).

The full results of the People's Republic of Birmingham Primary are as follows:

71% John McCain
69% Mike Huckabee
66% Chris Dodd
66% Bill Richardson
63% Barack Obama
63% Hillary Clinton
59% John Edwards
57% Mitt Romney
52% Rudy Giuliani
50% Fred Thompson
49% Joe Biden
45% Tom Tancredo
44% Mike Gravel
44% Dennis Kucinich
37% Ron Paul

2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz

It does not surprise me that John McCain came top in this poll as I have always considered McCain to be head and shoulders above the other Republican candidates. Like me, he is fiercely independent in his beliefs. His pro-immigration tendencies and belief that we should see out the war in Iraq probably were the deciding factors, even though I opposed the original military action. You only have to look at Kashmir and Palestine to look at the mess that can be made when the West (in those cases Britain) decide to mess with things and then cut and run before seeing the job is finished.

I was surprised that Mike Hukabee came second but to be fair, both our politics are heavily influenced by Christianity.

Next stop: Michigan.
