While national polls consistently show Democratic Sen. Barack Obama leading Republican Sen. John McCain in the presidential race — anywhere from 2 percent to 15 percent — federal employees who will be working under the next commander-in-chief are decidedly less certain.
According to an unscientific poll currently running on the Federal TimesÂ website, Obama and McCain are tied at 45 percent of the vote.Â Â More than 2,000 readers have responded as ofÂ Wednesday morning.
Among the remaining respondents,Â 5 percent are undecided andÂ another 2 percent say they plan to vote for another candidate. Perhaps most interestingly, 3 percent say they don’t plan to vote at all. This makes me wonder, are some feds really so apathetic that they don’t think it matters who’s in the Oval Office? If I was allowed to vote for my next boss, I’m sure I’d have an opinion.
