Vote for humans

Eight of the top nine “contributors” to Mitt Romney’s campaign are financial institutions - including some who contributed to the economic meltdown like Wells Fargo and Bank of America. 

Most of the big “contributors” to President Obama’s campaign are big tech and telecommunications conglomerates and law firms - like net neutrality opponents Time Warner and Comcast. 

The poll questions that are now a substitute for political journalism shouldn’t ask which candidate you’re going to vote for. They should ask which set of corporate interests you are going to waste your vote on. 

Unless your answer is that you aren’t going to waste your vote and will instead cast your ballot for a smaller party candidate who represents actual human beings... such as Green Party nominee Dr. Jill Stein or the Libertarian Gary Johnson.
