This is a poll that votes among candidates for the 2008 Presidential election.

I've included the most familiar candidates of each of the main U.S. ballot-qualified parties--Democrat, Republican, Green, and Libertarian. Most of the candidates are Democrats and Republicans, but Rebecca Rotzler is a Green, and Michael Badnarik is a Libertarian.

Voting that you like a candidate gives him/her 2 points. Voting that you're indifferent to a candidate gives him/her 1 point. Voting that you dislike a candidate or don't know gives no points to him/her.

That is the Emocracy method, and is equivalent to the -1,0,1 point rating system which is described in the voting system poll.
