Word Association: The Presidential Politics Edition

Florida’s primary is finally here -- excited yet? If you are, I applaud you. If you are like the majority of us, you’ve already decided on your candidate, and regardless of whatever that Green Party friend is telling you, you aren’t going to change your mind. In the spirit of this idea, we’ve asked a couple of random folk to name the first word or phrase that comes to mind when we mention a candidate’s name.
