Bhutan-I know that the candidate polls had Guilani polling third in Florida, I still voted for Giuliani even though it was clear that McCain would win the Florida primary.
I did not want McCain because I wanted a true conservative that would speak for me not a Republican in name only which McCain represents.
If I would have wanted a liberal I would have voted for Obama. In the presidential race, I voted for McCain, but did so reluctantly.
This was a huge problem for McCain because a lot of the Republican base did not vote for him and some even voted for Obama to spite him.
When you don’t have the full support of your own party, or if your base is not excited about your candidacy, the independents and moderates that you will need to shore up your campaign will not vote for you and this is what happened to McCain.
