Political Poll!

I have to admit, this is for a school assignment.  But it'd be interesting to hear answers nonetheless.

EDIT:  Thanks for the responses so far!
I do need some statistical variety, so any males who'll jump in--that'd be great.  And anyone over 29, too :)
I will post the overall results of the poll soon.

Beforehand, I do need some statistical information:
- name (real or fake, I don't mind)
- age group:  18-29, 30-44, 45-64, or 65+
- gender:  male or female
- political party:  Republican, Democratic, or Independent
