Rank order the candidates below in terms of their suitability to be President of the U.S., from most to least qualified.

Only the 5 favorite choices will win the poll.
The poll ends January 18, 2017. The poll supervisor is Brian Leiter (bleiter@uchicago.edu). Contact the poll supervisor if you need help.

Give each of the following choices a rank, where a smaller-numbered rank means that you prefer that choice more. For example, give your top choice the rank 1. Give choices the same rank if you have no preference between them. You do not have to use all the possible ranks. All choices initially have the lowest possible rank. Note: “No opinion” is not the same as the lowest possible rank; it means that you choose not to rank this choice with respect to the other choices.

Ballot reporting is enabled for this poll. Your ballot (the rankings you assign to choices) will be visible in the poll results when the poll ends. However, your ballot will still be anonymous: no personally identifying information will appear.
