VP Candidates Change Minds of 1 in 5 Dentists

VP candidates and dentists

In this survey, we asked dentists if the announcement of VP candidates had caused them to reconsider their votes.

Three out of four dentists have already made up their minds, and were not swayed by the VP choices. On the other hand, fully 18% said they expected the VP to change their vote.

“The VP choice did not change my outlook, but did renew my enthusiasm,” said one dentist.


Rural dentists were distinctly more likely to change their vote due to the VP candidates. Only half of rural dentists remain as certain in their vote as they were before.

Rural doctors are particularly enthusiastic about Sarah Palin. “I was ready to dump the Republicans and vote for the Constitution Party,” said one rural dentist. “Palin totally brought us back!!”

Here are some other comments from dentists:

  • “Unless they work in for the govt. or a school, any dentist who votes for Obama truly has a death wish.” (Texas orthodontist)
  • “Even though Obama may be a little harder on my pocketbook, Washington needs more of a shake-up than McCain. Either will be a vast improvement over Bush. There is hope….” (Texas dentist)
  • “Palin makes me more comfortable voting for McCain, although I NEVER could have voted for Obama.” (Tennessee dentist)
  • “Caribou Barbie only makes me more sure that I have to do what I can to help the Obama ticket win.” (Florida dentist)
  • “I am not a Democrat and have never voted for one for President, but the Republicans under Bush have screwed up so badly they deserve to lose.” (Michigan dentist)
  • “Obama probably won in the VP choice, but McCain may get the best gain from his choice.” (Texas dental professional)
  • “My decision is based on issues. That said, I do not believe that Mrs. Palin is qualified to be President of the US, and that should be the benchmark of a VP candidate. John McCain did not put ‘Country First’ with his VP choice.” (California dentist)
  • “If there was a write in candidate, I would consider them…” (Florida dentist)
