Days of our Lives Poll Results: Who Should Raise David?

Ben and Rafe Days of Our LivesBen and Rafe Days of Our Lives

David is currently missing on Days of our Lives. Well, we know where he is. He’s with Evan (Brock Kelly) and Orpheus (not the one in the Greek myths, the Salem one, which is not much better).

Days of our Lives Polling

But Rafe (Galen Gering) doesn’t know where he is, and he is technically the legal parent. Neither does Ben (Robert Scott Wilson), who is the baby’s biological uncle.

Once little David is found, who should be his forever family? We have opinions of over 6,000 viewers!

Rafe Record

Rafe has been taking care of David for most of his life, and 80% of you think it should stay that way. Not only is he the person David is most used to, but he is also the only one who isn’t a criminal. Why change what’s working? Besides, without David, what storyline would Rafe have?

Uncle Ben

A smaller 19% of the audience voted for Ben and Ciara (Victoria Konefal). Ben is David’s biological relative, and now that he’s no longer in prison for killing, you know, David’s mother, he has a much better shot at custody.

He and Ciara may not be married, but they are a couple, and it’s good for a baby to have two parents. After all, what could be more conducive to a relationship that just survived jail and Ben almost being killed by lethal injection than a toddler?! All relationships are always improved by children, especially for young people! Absolutely nothing can go wrong here!

Even Evan

Only 1% voted for David’s biological father, despite the fact that, yes, Rafe may be the legal guardian, but Evan was David’s nanny for an entire year and probably spent more time with him than with Rafe.

(This is not a slam against working parents, just a matter of adding up the hours. David was likely asleep for half the time Rafe was home with him). Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
