    I don't really give much thought to it until October, given what can happen between now and then, for example the economic meltdown in 08. You never know who will get caught cheating on his cancer-stricken wife either. I just know I can't stand either major party and so won't vote for either. Possibly I'll consider an Independent like Bernie Sanders on write in, though I'll have to look up his voting record or whatever. Maybe I'll write in a fictional character again. I've actually never heard of the other guy on your list. Guess I'm just totally put off by politics anymore, but I'll still do some research and vote in the end.

    It is a difficult decision, but the lesser of two evils would be my choice

    If it's neck and neck in Texas I'll vote for Romney. Obama hasn't shown me anything new or inventive that I feel will result in a successful 2nd term, so I'll take the risk with a new guy.

    If it isn't neck and neck I'll write-in for Ron Paul. I know some find him "crazy", but I think his frugality and adherence to principle will make him consistent and effective where we need the most help (fed scope and spending).

    Johnson for sure. I actually lucked out and got a chance to watch the Libertarian debates (between 2 men - Johnson and a man who helped found a Libertarian newspaper). I liked them both, but the former gub'na of New Mexico really impressed me.

    Wasted vote? Sure. Regardless, there's no shot in hell I vote for either Obama or Romney. I don't like snakes, and I don't like RINOs. No Animal Planet here.

    I was saying last year that Obama should NOT run and instead step aside for Clinton. That did not happen.

    I have been saying now that Biden and Clinton should be flipped and the ticket needs to be Obama & Clinton.

    I vote for Obama.

    Re: If the election was today, who would you vote for?

    Thank you for including my option in this poll.

    I will vote for Gary Johnson.

    I vote based on my principle not on a party platform. I will not vote for candidate B because we got to get candidate A out of office when both candidates offer nothing of real change. In a presidential race, my individual vote will not make a difference whatsoever. Why? Because my state will vote the red candidate no matter what so our Electoral votes will go to Romney. That is what chooses our President; the Electoral College. Popular vote be damned (see 2000) when it comes to the highest office in our land.

    A vote for Johnson isn't a vote for Obama....its a vote for Gary Johnson.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    More than likely...... Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party (assuming he's on the ballot here in Massachusetts)
    If he's not then I'd either write my own name in or simply not vote for anyone.

    I vote for Obama.
    Why flip Biden and Clinton? The VP has very little to do, the Secretary of State has a lot to do. Clinton is doing very well for us in her position, I think she uses her gender very well, i.e. to her advantage, in her job. Do you think Biden could do the Secretary of State job as well as Clinton. She has also developed a reputation with many world leaders that is effective.
