Poll: GOP Voters Siding With 'Least Heinous' Candidate

by Dexter Futzmery, TYDN Political Affairs Writer
JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- (TYDN) Likely GOP primary voters polled here following the GOP presidential debate said Friday they plan next week to choose the "least heinous" of the four candidates, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

TheYellowDailyNews' telephone survey of 150 likely GOP voters for the first time highlighted a positive shift in U.S. voting habits. In past surveys, voters said they would vote for the "less evil" candidate.

Analysts said the statistically significant study, with a plus-or-minus margin of error rating of 3.5 percentage points, underscored that Americans were embracing the political process and beginning to view politicians as only heinous instead of evil.

"I think the study clearly shows that American politics is moving in the right direction, that Americans are starting to have more faith and are feeling better about their choices for government office," Cal State Fullerton historian Harry Jeffers said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews.

Voters seemed to support that sentiment in their interviews with TheYellowDailyNews.

"I'm for sure gonna pull the trigger for the least heinous Grand Old Party candidate," Omar Frankenburger, a 39-year-old unemployed Key Largo fish monger, said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "In elections past, I used to pull the trigger for the less evil candidate. I think America is moving in the right direction."

Meantime, TheYellowDailyNews survey of 150 likely democratic voters found that the majority is leaning toward voting for the incumbent that failed to keep campaign promises from the previous election.
