Imagine this: your favorite candidate for the general election doesn't quite make it. There is a brokered convention, and the winner doesn't suit you. Do you still cast a vote to prevent the other party from winning?
If my party chose a candidate that I was not too thrilled with, I would still vote for them because what the other parties are offering up is against my principles.
I probably vote against the party that pulled that crap move.
I will vote for Trump or no one.
Absolutely not, I don't vote by party. My preference in one candidate almost never entails my automatic support for other candidates with the same affiliation. I'd vote for my next preference regardless.
Absolutely. Do the best you can with what you've got.
If Cruz or Trump are the nominees, I will vote against my party. IMO, Hillary is a better choice.
What is your party?
Elected Republicans have been embarrassing for the last 15 years
Yes if i voted 3 rd party in a UK election that just helps divide the left and hands power to the right
I'm not tied to either party. I'll vote for whoever makes sense out of the survivors.
If Bernie doesn't get the nomination, them I'm gonna finally look into the libertarian party. Never heard of them til I joined SOH, and I still don't know what they're about.
If you like Sanders, you should look into the Green Party.
Ok thank you
Sanders has a lot of libertarian views, which is why I like him and caucuses for him. I disagree with him on a few issues, like health care and education, but support him on most other issues.
"Sanders has a lot of libertarian views"
Auditing the fed, term limits for congress, breaking up the big banks, getting money out of politics, equal treatment under the law, personal social freedoms, all of these are libertarian ideas, not democrat or republican.
That's for sure. While I find the idea of a contested convention and such results rather distasteful I would vote for any three of our candidates over the liar and the socialists any day, even if they some how bring in a completely new candidate I would reluctantly vote for them. Because the idea of eight more years of a democrat president is beyond nightmarish something I could not allow without doing all I could to prevent it without feeling guilty. I will vote no matter what for the republican nominee yes.
I'll still vote. I don't based on party.
I don't vote based on party, it's just a convenient way of grouping.
My allegiance is not bound to a party, but to ideas. If a candidate does not agree with my ideas, I will not support him/her.
Screw em !
Yep, anyone is better than a republican.
I probably would unless the candidate has (from my pov) unacceptable views on (from my pov) important issues.
That would be the way I would likely vote too.
