Pet Owners Prefer McCain by American Elephant

I never trust a person who doesn’t love animals. Unless they were attacked as a child, beaten with dead animal carcasses, or something similarly traumatic, there really is something deeply wrong with them. A new poll by “the-news-service-that-shall-not-be-named” and Yahoo News lends new political perspective to that belief.

According to the poll of 1,759 adults, pet owners prefer John McCain over Obama 42 to 37 percent. Dog owners prefer McCain by nine points, cat owners prefer him by three.

Conversely, the heartless, animal-hating minority of rat-bastards that don’t care enough about anyone but themselves to own a pet prefer Obama by 48 to 34 percent.

As far as the candidates go, the McCain family has an English Springer Spaniel named Sam, a mutt named Coco, turtles Cuff and Link, a black and white short-hair named Oreo, one ferret, three parakeets and a bunch of saltwater fish.

The Obama family has no pets, but Barack has promised his daughters a dog, “after the election.”

Looks like my instincts were right.

This I totally agree with you on, if a person don’t like animals then they’re worthless hateful people! I know you didn’t go that far , but I have never met anyone that hates animals that I could get along with! 🙂

There is no pet story. I mean it is about different preferences of urban and rural voters, I think as soon as you control for that the statistical pet effect will most probably disappear.

Actually, its more reflective of the preferences of married and unmarried voters. People who are married, people who own pets, and I suspect people who own property, all prefer McCain. People without responsibility, without children, without spouses, without property, prefer Obama, and why shouldnt they? (Other than an understanding of our founding principles and self-respect?) Obama is promising them endless “free” goodies.

Actually, I don’t understand how pet owners could get behind a candidate whose vice presidential pick is so proud of her animal killing capabilities. As an animal lover (dog and bird owner), I much prefer a candidate (and a culture) that is ready to stop fighting and live peacefully.

You do realize that meat does not originate at the grocery store, don’t you? Even if you are a vegan, (by the way, studies have proven that plants feel pain and even fear), the remaining 99.9% of the population, including pet owners, eat meat, and believe it or not, the animals do not volunteer for the service.
