Likely Republican, unless Thompson gets the nom. I'm hoping the Libertarians draft Paul or something, and he gets some marginal support.

Democratic.

The policies of the current GOP have led us to a gigantic deficit, needless casualties overseas, and our number one enemy is just growing stronger. If the Republicans nominated someone who didn't continue the policies of the current administration I may vote for them but that won't happen since the "top three" are all the same.

I knew you couldn't look like Daniel Craig and be a Republican.  RINO!

You do realize that if you elect another "stay the course" Republican, it'll just continue to destroy your party's credibility.

i agree with kucinich on a number of issues, including health care and a handgun ban.

but he is anti-trade and anti-israel.  i cannot go along with those positions.

i am still hoping this election could spawn some kind of centrist third party opposition, but if not then the Dems. Cant buy into the whole program, but a new party will flush all the Bushies out of the system

I'm rooting for whichever candidates I think will be best.  But part of me would enjoy seeing the Republicans pummeled again, on a presidential level.

I like you, Walter, but it's nonsense like this that gets me frustrated.

There was nothing in my "tone" to suggest I think the plight of lower income Americans is a "big joke." You are the joke in this case, Walter. You go on and on about the working families but it seems like you think the true champion of those families is the joke.

Why not support Kucinich, Walter? "He doesn't stand a chance." Newsflash from the real world - Neither does Dodd.

Republican for the most part. If they pull out a far right horrible person I could see myself voting Democrat if they are moderate enough though I doubt it will happen.

My only chances of rooting for the Dems in 2008 were if Bayh or Warner ran and if the GOP nominated someone I didn't like (like Romney).

I feel the same way. I am not sure the Republicans can regain any competency to manage the country, and if the Dem nominee is a moderate, I could vote that way. 

Or I could just say screw it and vote Libertarian. Tongue Grin

Unless Paul wins the Republican Nomination, Constitution Party (which is larger than and finished ahead of the Green Party and based on a technicality is also larger than the Libertarian Party).

Of course since this forum is heavily Democrat I have to guess this poll's results will show that.

I'm not ruling out anything but probably not. If Hillary was the nominee I would probably vote for a third party. I suppose "Not GOP" would be who I'm supporting.

I suppose I'm 'rooting' for the Democrats although I'm probably not going to vote for them unless Gore gets in.
