    Voting for a party, no matter who is it's candidate, is 'ridiculously partisan' to me.

    You don't agree...fine.

    Less then 8% so far. I thought it would be much higher. Glad I was wrong (so far).
    I think what people say in a poll like this and what people do at the ballot box can be two different things.
    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.

    I think a pre-bridgate Christie could have changed some of that. NJ probably would have gone for him, Penn, Conn, Del probably would have been put into play along with the 7 swing states. I really do not see anyone else at this moment that could do something like that. It seems like the parties have their trustworthy states in their column and the fight is over the 7 states again.

    Yeah. That is unless one of the candidates is way out of the the main stream. Goldwater in 64, McGovern in 72 are two that come to mind right quick. Then there is the I am just plain tied of the incumbent syndrome, Carter in 80, Bush the first in 92 fall into this category. But when doing simulations for the presidency, there is a rule of thumb used when that simulation is based on party affiliation. History has shown with the above exceptions that 90% of those who say they are Democrats will vote for that parties candidate, 93% of those who say they are Republicans will vote for their parties candidates. Then there is the lean category, 67% of those who say their are independent but lean towards the Democratic Party will vote for that parties candidate, the lean Republicans are slightly higher at 70%. Republicans have a smaller base to pull from, but are a bit more loyal.

    The rest is what I call true independent which no one can put into any category. But in 2008 55% of these types voted for Obama and the Democrats, in 2010, 56% in this category voted for Republican congressional candidate and in 2012 they split roughly 50-50. So it is a crap shot.

    When using it on the 2012 election the final results was right on the money.

    So even though you like Rand Paul you wouldn't vote for him because he's running under the GOP?

    My party doesn't field candidates for President. However if Gov. Ventura runs I'll vote for him, and he is a member of my party.
