      How come Japanese and Chinese are not on the list?
      You got something against Orientials?

        What about a supervillian?

            Sikhs have been shamelessly excluded from this poll. Also Buddhists. I warrant Phil would have a thing or two to say about that.

              Nah the orientals are cool people in my book, many of Asias people like to gamble. Imagine the reaction if in the USA during WW2, some guy said, I betcha 100 years from now we will have a Japanese President.

                As for Sikhs, and Buddhists, no they are not on the poll, but Hindus are. While Hinduism and Buddhism are not the same, What I wanted to do wrt the poll is to put up the sexes, the 3 religions of Abraham, and a non Abraham religion such as Hinduism.

                In any event though, ACG polls allows for around 26 choices.

                One of the options I had in the poll was transsexual, and I feel that when it comes to the sexes, most of us think of a man or a woman, although we do know of people whom willingly undergo a sex change operation, these folks can be known as Transexuals.

                17. Transsexual — Transsexual refers to transgender people who outwardly identify as their experienced gender rather than their birth sex. Many, but not all, transsexuals are transitioning (or have transitioned) from male to female or female to male through hormone therapy and/or gender reassignment surgery.

                Let me say though, things like Facebook and twitter allow you to choose from over 50 types of genders, so apparently, I'm missing a whole bunch of types of people to put on the poll, such as the following

                18. Two-spirit — This term refers to gender-variant Native Americans. In more than 150 Native American tribes, people with "two spirits"—a term coined in the 1990s to replace the term "berdache"—were part of a widely accepted, often respected, category of gender-ambiguous men and women.

                Prior to this day, I was unaware that the term two spirit could refer to gender-variant Native Americans.

                  Regardless of the PC blather above, someone who undergoes cosmetic surgery... and that is exactly what it is... and genital mutilation along with taking drugs and supplements for the rest of their life to be something they are not genetically (their DNA does not change and if their bones were dug up 500 years from now they'd be typed as their original gender as a result) then they have serious issues.
                  Aside from that transsexuals also have an extremely high rate of suicide.

                  http://articles.latimes.com/2014/jan...ender-20140127

                  A whopping 41% of people who are transgender or gender-nonconforming have attempted suicide sometime in their lives, nearly nine times the national average, according to a sweeping survey released three years ago.
                  A troubled, likely suicidal person is not what we need as a President. So, shovel out all the Progressive, LGBT drivel you want. The evidence is overwhelming: Transsexuals have serious issues that would make them highly unlikely to make a good political leader.

                    I see what you mean. Perhaps a whole variety of these sorts of polls could be set up. One that bases electability solely on religion, another on orientation, and another on ethnicity. You could then include Asians, Native-Americans, Latinos, Indians, etc (even delving into different variants of European Americans e.g.: Italian Americans vs Anglo-Americans). Might be interesting.

                        As soon as Obama builds himself a sick looking suit of battle armor then give me a call.

                          You said that during the last two elections.
