    Re: Are You a Straight Ticket Voter?

    At this point of my life I am voting straight GOP. I've lived through 2 Democratic Presidents and 1 Republican and the Democrats in my opinion have done far more damage to this nation than the Republican. I could not in good conscious be a part of a group that subjects another Democrat onto this nation.
    TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT. (also, perhaps, General Mattis for President).

    I've voted democrat for president since I was old enough to vote. I've voted almost solely for for Democrats for house and senate seats too, though I did vote republican a couple times when I lived in Toledo because of how sleazy the democratic candidate's attack ads were. I've voted for a number of republican candidates for state and local offices though.

    I've never had a straight-ticket ballot in my life. My ballots are always split, based on issues and individuals, not political parties... both the DNC and the GOP suck. That does not mean that the people who call themselves democrats or republicans suck; it's the political party machine I'm talking about. These political party machines don't give a fat flying fig about the country; they only care about raising money and keeping/getting power. A pox on them both.

    I've never voted straight party ticket.... though in recent years i've found myself voting for fewer Democrats ( as a straight white male, their party message is off putting)

    Re: Are You a Straight Ticket Voter?

    The last few elections I have stood in line to vote, entered the voting booth, and pressed the vote button without selecting any (or many) candidates.

    I'm fond of elections where there are alternative candidates. On the last ballet I voted, I was able to vote for a republican for governor who was running as an independent (I'm not that fond of our republican governor).

You're hardly alone. The majority of voters vote a straight Democrat ticket where I live and, in other Texas cities, most vote a straight Republican ticket. In fact, it's funny. Where I live, the GOP laments that kind of voting (which I agree with) but promotes it anywhere Repubs are the majority...but I digress. If you're constantly lamenting the other side as being "cold hearted" or the "empty headed", why should there be a reluctance to admit that you'd never cast your vote for someone you percieve that way? So just be real.

    getting the poll together
    It depends. I'll often vote for the 'person not the party' but I'll also often vote for the party, especially when it comes to elections to the legislator, because I'll consider myself to be voting for an agenda not an individual.

    Last three republican POTUS terms, three new recessions, three new wars.

    Last four dem POTUS terms, zero new recessions, zero new wars.

    You must be fond of wars and recessions, but...whatever.
