Divorce and Politics

With the Presidential election of 2008 looming on the horizon, its no surprise that all types of polls are coming out concerning who will be elected and why. Quinnipiac University has taken a look at the presidential race from the prospective of the Florida voters. Florida looks like it is going to be one of the closest races again next year and one of the questions that was asked of the people polled was the impact a candidate's divorce status had on your likelihood of voting for that candidate. 67% of the Florida voters said it made no difference to them if a candidate had been divorced more than once, but 29% of all the voters and 31% of the Republicans said they would be less likely to vote for that candidate. Character is always an issue when it comes to who we elect as President, but it looks like the majority of Floridians, especially those who are Democrats, have no problem with a candidate being divorced.
