    Hello! I thought I'd start a thread to discuss who we are voting for in the election. I would love to know what other chicken-farmers are thinking about it. However, there should be ABSOLUTELY NO POLITICAL ARGUMENTS.



    So, are you for Trump? Clinton? Johnson?

    Who do you want to be your next Governor?

    Etc.

    Please participate in the BYC presidential poll above.

    Subscribing because I'm rather curious to see the political demographics of the poultry community. I'm inclined to predict it'll be conservative-leaning - chickens keepers tend to be country people which tend to be more conservative than not.

    That's what I thought. But 60% said Hillary Clinton [​IMG]

    I agree. Country dwellers do TEND to be conservative, though obviously not ALL are. Give the poll time...

    Yeah [​IMG] I'm a socially conservative libertarian, but I won't vote for Gary Johnson. I refuse to vote for a socially liberal president - so I'm voting Trump! [​IMG]

    Even though I live stateside, I'm one of those darned immigrants that's stealing jobs and a leech on the system.

    I find it odd that with the Canadian politics I generally skewed conservative. But down here...I find some of the republican values on social issues repulsive.

    Any particular reason Jill Stein was not included in the poll?

    Same. Neither of the two main candidates are particular liked by the majority of the people. It will be interesting to see the results in November.

    Does she have enough people wanting her on the polls? I'm not very familiar with her, sorry [​IMG] I can add her on the poll if you want.

    As long as everyone's polite and respectful, I think this can work. I'll do my part. ;-)
