    The problem is, we're all too focused on the presidential election and forget that a lot of other people are running for election as well.

    If we're happy with the work Congress has done, then by all means, let's re elect them. If not, then it's time to vote against all of the incumbents regardless of party.

    I don't have a party. Yesterday I read or heard that just over 50% of Americans polled don't relate to either ruling party.

    I may not vote Dem......but I'm not voting for people that call me a liar either.
    I can understand your thinking.....but like I have stated to many. Country first.....then the Repubs can take care of who is who in their Party. Anything else should be a second act.

    He really is a nice guy. I found him to be warm, and I actually saw him in 2 different settings. One was a speech/rally he gave. It was hard to focus on him with all of the zombies tossing their underwear at him like housewives at a Tom Jones concert. The second was in a very intimate setting with only about 40 of us there. He took questions, he asked our names and then responded with our names, which in my case he used again about 30 minutes after my first question. He made some good jokes which were unscripted and clever. He wasn't the personal monster some make him out to be. I detest his politics and I detest who he associates with, but I would have a cocktail with him any day.

    Actually, Ron Paul made a big impression on me. He has been a beacon of rationality in a sea of irrationality. I am SO sorry he retired.

    I don't agree with everything he says...but what he says seems so logical, politically brave, rational and unencumbered by partisan politics.

    yes, you hit the nail on the head. One doesn't have to agree with everything a candidate, an elected official or a political party says and does to be able to support or to have good vibes about them. The main problem I have with those on this site is they will automatically agree or disagree with any issue only because that is how their party or the other party comes down. It is sort of like they do not have a mind of their own.

    I would love to see just once some of the diehard democrats disagree with something President Obama did or the same thing for the diehard Republicans, reap some praise on the man once in awhile. But I suspect that is too much to expect.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Since I live in California, i.e., Democratistan, it's already a given that our electoral votes will go to whoever the Democrats pick. Therefore, I'll most likely vote libertarian just as a protest once again, unless, of course, there is a scintilla of a chance that anyone but the Democrat will win, then, it will depend on who the candidates are.
    I hear you and agree. It is a shame that any presidential race basically comes down to 7 swing states with the other 43 pretty much decided. But I think with the right candidate, that candidate can change that. But perhaps I am dreaming.

    This is exactly why I started this poll...I wanted to see how many people were ridiculously partisan...vote for the party no matter who runs for it.

    Less then 8% so far. I thought it would be much higher. Glad I was wrong (so far).

    I vote issues, not parties. That means that I, like the overwhelming majority of Americans, vote for one of the two parties and the democratic party is much closer to my values than the republican party. So while I do not vote for a party, the odds of me voting republican are slim to none.

    That is not really being "ridiculously partisan". One does not join a party because of the name, or based on who throws the best parties, but instead they join a party based on the ideals that party represents. So when a candidate is republican, that means that he or she falls within a certain range of values. Likewise a democratic candidate.
