    I typically vote Democrat in national elections and typically vote moderate Republican in state and local.

    hyper-partisanship is this country's main problem in the political sphere.
    I try to support 3rd parties, but it's pretty much hopeless as long as Aemricans think they are "wasting their vote" by supporting a 3rd party

    I don't vote a straight party ticket. Nationally, I vote Republican.

    Re: Are You a Straight Ticket Voter?

    For the most part I view people who vote straight ticket as being weak-minded, gullible, and easily led, though I admit that I do know a few people personally who actually put honest thought into it and sincerely come down on a single partisan side. There are exceptions to pretty much every rule.

    While most of my votes on national level candidates would be considered "straight ticket," I've voted for candidates from both major and multiple minor parties for local and state level offices.

    Good God no. I've seen some GOP candidates come out accusing a hardcore Tea Partier of being a RINO because he didn't want to completely remove property taxes and I've seen Democrats run for office like they truly were indifferent about anyone voting for them.

    Re: Are You a Straight Ticket Voter?

    Presidential I've only voted for Republicans, with the exception of my vote for Ross Perot
    Governors - probably a 50/50 split
    Senators - mostly Republicans
    Congressional - probably a 50/50 split but lately all Republicans

    Yes, I have voted straight ticket more than once, and each time I did that it was Republican straight

    Straight tickett. I often find that the democrat candidate is too far left. The left are crazy, the right would be liberals 50 years ago. The country itself is too far left, so im pretty much forced to vote straight ticket to find a candidate even close to my values.
