So, Mitt has it locked now. Are you going to vote for him?


#1

Well, with Mitt’s win in Texas, he has it locked.

So, simple poll: I’m not going to assign why’s to the choices. Please discuss your choice.

1: I’ll vote for Mitt
2: I’ll vote for Mitt, grudgingly
3: Other
4: Not Voting, or voting for Obama


#2

Well, I suppose since he’s locked it up now, I’ll go ahead and vote for him, most likely. I ain’t happy about it. He’s not Obama though, and hopefully will do better.
I don’t see a viable third party choice.

I am abivalent as to the outcome of this election as I see very little difference between Obamama and Romnulus.

It is sickening that twice in a row I’m having to hold my nose like this.
I feel like I’ve been violated just thinking about it.


#3

Happily voting for Mitt and think he will make a great Prez especially if we get a majority in the Senate.


#4

Mitt wasnt my first choice but if he lives up to most of his promises I’ll be happy with my vote


#5

Well it looks like Mitt is following McCain’s blueprint for losing an election. In other words, “don’t point out Obama is a radical left racist nodding in agreement with Jeramiah Wright and then saying he never heard a word Wright said”.

Then Mitt apologizes for something that happened 35 years ago.

All this is called “letting the dems set the ground rules for the general election”, and it looks like Mitt is all too happy to dance to the dems tune. .

46% See Obama-Romney Race as Choice of Lesser of Two Evils - Rasmussen Reports™

Election 2012: Pennsylvania President - Rasmussen Reports™ Obama 47%, Romney 41%

I’ll wait till election day, pull out my bottle of Jack Daniels then see how many drinks I’ll need in order to go vote. Then again, maybe I’ll get pulled over for DUI before I get there.

from that link:

Most voters see serious differences of opinion between President Obama and Mitt Romney

Only six percent (6%) believe the two candidates agree on most important issues, with two percent (2%) more who say they agree on just about everything.


#8

Still, TWO EVILS.

#9

And voting for the lesser of two evils is how we’ve ended up with all of these problems in the first place.

#11

I don’t disagree with that. The problem is I don’t see a good third party alternative either. Until that happens, well… it’s not a realistic option for me.
What really sucks to me is that neither one of these clowns appreciates the 2nd amendment.
That is as maddening as all get out.

[/quote]Does that mean a third-party candidate who can win or one you agree with?

I guarantee Gary Johnson respects the second amendment and first, third, fourth, fifth, sixth…


#13

Mitt will likely win GA anyways, but I am voting for Gary Johnson.


#14

The third-party choice was the closest to mine, but I’ll probably do a write-in.


#15

That makes no sense. We’d have fewer problems if we voted for the more evil candidate?


#16

Same here. Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.


#17

I’m British, so of course voting in your election can’t be an option for me … and as in real life, I’m not going to try to add anything to this poll, either. It’s surely not my place to.

But I have an observation to offer.

Just how badly DO those of you on the Right want Obama ousted from power, anyway ?

Whatever might or might not be said here about the merits of the choices on offer, there’s one reality that a poll like this starkly illustrates … the splitting of an effective anti-Obama vote to the point where opposition votes can become too fragmented to have any ultimately worthwhile effect.

For anyone interested … I’ve the utmost sympathy with those who balk at voting for Romney, and I believe, as many of you do, that he’s far from the full-blooded Conservative figure that’s really needed to get the US back on track. But, then … you clearly risk letting Obama in by default.

I’ve a plea to offer. PLEASE don’t allow this ! Getting proper Conservatism back into its rightful place in American life may prove to be a multi-stage affair, where you reach your goal by degrees, over time. Isn’t that better than allowing the fracturing of effective anti-Socialist voting to occur, and thus giving Obama the last laugh ??

Anyway, I’ve had my say, and as a non-American I feel uncomfortable about ‘interfering’ in threads like this. I’m just so passionately driven to NOT want your Left wing to triumph AGAIN !


#18

I agree, sir.


#19

Thank you !

The fightback has to begin somewhere … and an Obama win by default would stall the process before it even starts. Even if progress towards the proper goal is slow, at least it is progress of a sort. Better that than none at all.

Whatever shortcomings Romney has, any lack of support is a vote for Obama. You think Romney is bad folks, imagine an Obama without the worry of a reelection. Imagine what he meant when he whispered to Russia “Wait til after the election”. Let’s find out how he handles a nuclear-armed Iran and how he expects to restrain Israel any further. Not to mention what our economy will look like in 4 more years of this nonsense.
