No one has voted for him outside of primaries. The election has not happened yet, so the answer is clearly NO!
People only voted to choose the Democratic nominee, which doesn't necessarily mean he'll win the election. He may be popular, but that doesn't mean its out of spite to the Republicans.
Spite would not be an appropriate word either, people probably voice problems with the Republicans because their form of governance isn't doing the US any favours at the moment.
Definition of spite:Malicious ill will prompting an urge to hurt or humiliate.
You also make the mistake of assuming that Obama supporters don't know much about him. I think people know more of him than when the Cocaine-snorting, drunk-driving, national service-avoiding, bible-thumping, human rights-violating warmonger Dubya came into power.
In the words of the late great Bill Hicks:
"You know all that money we spend on nuclear weapons and defense each year, trillions of dollars, correct? Instead -- just play with this -- if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world -- and it would pay for it many times over, not one human being excluded -- we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever in peace."
Women have fought for a long time for equality. This is about equality. I would not give my seat up for another man so why should I give it up for a woman if they are equal?
That is not to say I would not surrender my seat to someone who was elderly (both male or female), on crutches (both male or female) or pregnant (both male or female - I saw that Oprah thing on Youtube).
There is no reason why men should give up their seats for women
I don't believe that the state should interfere with this sort of thing. They should be legally allowed to marry if they are both consenting adults. Surely more harm is done in forcing people who don't want to marry to marry (like that cult marrying off kids) than in letting those that want to marry someone of the same sex who is willing.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
