Not being one to pay heed to the exaggerated ramblings of media pundits and televised debates where finger pointing, opinions, and name-calling run more rampant than fact, I've taken it upon myself to do a thorough personal data gathering that summarizes basic demographics and issue positions of all the presidential candidates for the upcoming election - including the four third party candidates appearing on nearly every state ballot, which as you know are generally all but ignored by the media, and blocked by the political system from participating in major debates with the Republican and Democratic candidates.
This compilation does not include any segregate data on vice-presidential candidates, as the primary focus of any general election should be about the presidential candidates, and I believe that focusing undue attention on VP candidates merely serves to obfuscate the entire electoral process, when their role should be solely to support their respective presidential candidate. Additionally, all of the information was drawn directly from candidate websites and non-partisan sources, in order to prevent inaccurate or opinion-biased data.
Anyways, since this took nearly a week of down time to accomplish, I figured it wouldn't be doing any good to just keep such a resource to myself, so I thought that you might be interested in it. If you see any errors in the data, please let me know. Also feel free to pass along as you see fit. These are strictly facts, no analysis is done on my part as far as stating who I believe the "best" candidate to be, as that is, and always will be, a personal matter for each citizen of the United States.
