Myself:

2008 - John McCain.

Mom:

Straight Republican since at least 1988. Not sure about 1984, she immigrated here in the early '80s so she might not have been able to.

Dad:

Straight Republican since 1984. But he started out thinking Reagan was crazy so he may have voted for Carter in 1980.

My 83 year old grandmother, a hardcore Democrat who hates Bush, voted for McCain over Obama.

My other grandmother said she didn't vote. My parents both voted for McCain. Older sister voted for Obama.

Yeah a good chunk of what Obama ran on, his associations, creepy supporters, etc. seriously turned me off from him. I've also become a fan of Harold Ford, even if his background is sort of mediocre. I'd like to see him stage a comeback.

1992: Bush
1996: Perot
2000: Bush
2004: Bush
2008: McCain (Romney in the primaries, she moved to NJ where undeclareds can vote in primaries)

Dad (Republican 1968-2008; Undeclared 2008-present)
Has voted for every Republican presidential candidate.  Voted for Huckabee in the 2008 primary and I cannot figure out why.  He would've voted for Rudy if he was still in.  He wouldn't vote for Romney because he thought he was a faker.  But I don't know why he picked Huckabee over McCain.  In hindsight, he wishes Romney would've won.   

Mom's mom (Democrat 1932-2007)
1932: Roosevelt
1936: Roosevelt
1940: Roosevelt
1944: Roosevelt
1948: Truman

1980: Reagan
1984: Reagan
1988: Bush
1992: Bush
1996: Clinton
2000: Gore
2004: Bush

Mom's brother (Republican 1962-present)
Voted for the Republican presidential candidate in every election except 1968, where he voted for Wallace (he lived in an Italian neighborhood, neighboring a black neighborhood.  Racial  tensions were high and his vote was a product of that.  Thankfully, he no longer holds that animosity).

Sister #1 (Republican 1995-present)
1996: Dole
2000: didn't vote
2004: Bush
2008: McCain (McCain in primary)

Sister #2 (Undeclared)
2000: didn't vote
2004: Bush
2008: didn't vote

Me (Republican 2001-present)
2004: Bush
2008: McCain (voted for McCain in the primary) 

The rest of my family refuses to vote and doesn't trust any politician for the most part.

Just check to see how he voted.  It was for Obama.  Palin ended up being the deciding factor for him.
