I am Undecided
Vanity

Posted on 09/26/2011 1:20:08 PM PDT by SMGFan

I am from New Jersey and I am undecided which GOP candidate for president I support. Care to identify yourself as undecided as well and the state you live in?

I have the benefit of waiting until June to vote . The states voting in February should not decide the candidate.

I am in Kansas and it doesn’t matter who I want, the choice will be made long before we have primaries.

All I can do is complain about who the rest of you guys vote for.

I am in Virginia. The only thing I have decided is that I will not vote for any of the following for president in 2012:

Barack Obama
ANY other democrat
Mitt Romney
Ron Paul
Ross Perot
Arnold Schwarzeneger (sp?)
Michael Bloomberg
Donald Trump

Other than that, I'm undecided.

I am absolutely decided. I have been ever since Nov of 2008. There is no way to change my mind, alter my opinion, or cause to vote any other way.

I am esconded in the great ex-liberal state of WI.

And I am definitely going to vote AGAINST the stain and his regime come Nov of 2012.

I’m in Ohio and I will vote for a coffee can if it’s nominated. But, I don’t support any candidate. They are all horribly flawed.

Is there some kind of rule that when the party in power has a wounded, easily beatable incumbent, the party out of power has to run a seriously flawed opponent? It seems to work that way a lot,

I'm supporting Cain. Palin has upset me (waaa!) with her ring-around-the-rosey, but IF she jumps in I'd vote for her.

I imagine Perry will get the nomination. I don't really like him at all, but he's better than Mitt and Bamster.

Wisconsin : Of the current contenders I'll support Cain or Bachmann happily. I'll support Santorum with some reservations. I'll support Gingrich or Paul if only to defeat Obama. I'll support Perry only if he makes a brilliant VP choice -- and even then it's "iffy". If it comes down to Romney, Huntsman or Johnson (or Perry with an average VP choice) ... I'll write in Sarah Palin. With that much wiggle room, I guess I am undecided too. But there's at least five candidates there I offer the GOP to pick from, and that's a lot more choice than they'd prefer to offer me.

Yep by late Feb or early Mar we’ll know the nominee unless something unexpected develops. Heck we know the nominee as early as Oct or so.

I'm in Maryland and would like to say that Obama is tied with a sack of cow manure and I'll vote for anyone above Obama, but neither is quite true. Obama is well below the manure because natural fertilizer is useful.

As for voting for anyone over Obama, only if they will repeal ObamaCare and get rid of the rest of the socialist big government legacy, which means I will not vote for Romney. I have preferences other than that, but to a large extent I'll take what we get, with the main decision being whether to vote for an adequate republican if we get stuck with the insiders' choice or to write in a real American instead.

GEORGIA....I'll vote for any Republican on the ballot except for John McPain or Butt Boy Lindsey Graham !!

Newt is the smartest one running but doesn't have chance for the nomination. It will probably be Perry and I'll vote for him knowing he will be more center left than I would like.

And we think the Monarchy sucks;) LOL!!

Crazy way to pick a POTUS ain’t it?

A few people have to decide that they are more better for the position than other citizens.
They have to expose themselves to ridicule and criticism.
Then they have to get all dressed up and ‘perform’ for hecklers who throw insulting questions at them - before an audience of people who are then expected to vote for them.
They have to beg for money on street corners or lunch counters.
They have to force their families to act as if they enjoy all the ruckus.
They have to pick fights with one another and become bullies or victims of bullying.
Then they gather steam, or fade or re-ignite or say something stupid.

Warriors or wussies? Would you do it????

Iowa, first in the nation. Also undecided. And currently uninspired by my options...Probably cast a vote for Mr. Cain at this point. But Romney will win my precinct (heavy religious vote).

I was a delegate to the Florida Straw Poll and arrived there resigned to vote for one of the two presumed front runners, the usual Republican ‘hold your nose and vote for the one who stinks the least’. After three days of listening to all of the candidates, though, the more I heard Cain my choice became clear. He says what I’ve been wanting to hear. The pundits don’t decide who can win - we the voters decide who will win and Cain is an inspiring leader with clear plans and practical experience. Finally - a candidate I can wholeheartedly and enthusiastically support.

The media are dead wrong in their spinning Cain’s resounding win as a protest vote against Romney and Perry. No - It was a decided vote FOR Cain.

There are several I would be glad to vote for but I’m for Cain out of the declared candidates now. I am pretty much anybody but Obama with the exception of Ron Paul or Romney (and the latter I could probably hold my nose for to get rid of Obama if it came down to it).

MA here (see tag line)

I am undecided as well and have seen most of the debates. Newt really comes across (to me) as the best candidate and then Cain, but I highly doubt either will get the nod.

Isn’t that the case though? This is why our system seems to be so “flawed”. The best person almost never gets the nomination but rather the one with:

1) the most $$
2) Most popular (
3) The one who the political establishment of choice pushes to the forefront to propagate their self-serving agenda (on both sides of the aisle)
4 The most $$

Experience never seems to matter, nor does practicality. It’s horrible, but it’s all we got.

Bachman is unelectable and the rest are wasting their time, but I know it’s part of the process. A ticket of Perry and Romney (could flip either one) would easily beat Obama but would certainly be far from considered a “conservative” choice, maybe even set us back.

That being said, I will vote for anyone OTHER THAN a lib or progressive (eeww, it makes me sick just to type it).

See? We don’t have much of a choice.

I am from NJ, have been strongly for Perry because I saw him as the most electable conservative (yes, conservative) but now I am greatly worried about his electability and am thinking seriously about Cain.

I haven’t decided who I support yet, but I stand by the fact that I find Romney even being in the mix to be disgusting.

How anyone who basically mandated folks must buy a product simply because they breath could REMOTELY be considered the standard bearer for the GOP and Conservatives is mind numbing.

The only difference between RomneyCare and ObamaCare is one of scale.. the underlying mentallity that lets you believe you can do it is exactly the same and is not conservative in the least.

Cain is steady, principled, business smart, supporter of Israel and not connected politically. He can speak well and formulates his excellent ideas plus he’s a real man. Forget that he’s black and so is 1/2 Bama and only the LIEberals will make an issue of it anyway. Put Rubio as the VP and we are solid ready to roll now and later on. Get on the Cain train to restoration!

Wisconsin and completely undecided. Perry is great on global warming, terrible debater and on immigrants tuition and the gardisil thing. Romney is slick but has RomneyCare around his neck and flip flops like a fish out of water. Bachmann is looney, Palin is a lightweight, Newt has too many ex-wives and an expensive present one. Christie is terrible on global warming and in another in a long line of RINO east coast Republicans parading as conservative. The fact Mike and Morning Joe are having wet dreams about him is reason enough to beware. Huntsman is another guy born with a silver spoon and the fact he took a job from Obama disqualifies him. Ron Paul is too out theire on foreign policy for my liking. Herman Cain is probably the one I most identify with, I will be watching him going forward. Count me undecided at this point.

The primaries should take place in one or two days, nation wide, in February. For the G.O.P. the reddest states should vote on day one, the not so red states on day two.

And ALL Primaries should be closed primaries.

If I get a chance to vote for Palin in Feb. when MO has its primary, I will. If not, as of right now, I’d vote for Cain.

In November, I’ll vote for a ham sandwich over King Putt.

Nebraska. Bachmann. Maybe Palin. I want to see how she does in a debate first though. People complain Bachmann has no results to show for her efforts, but Newt's the only guy up there that I know has had results, but you can't trust him. He's like Reagan, but occasionally, just occasionally forgets what his core beliefs are. Perry and Romney are the same, primarily interested in... being President.

I should say in addition that there’s plenty of time for either Cain to disqualify himself or one of the other candidates currently in the race to distinguish himself in a positive manner (Bachmann has, IMHO, already distinguished herself out of consideration—but I’d still vote for her over O). So I guess I’m officially “Undecided Leaning Strongly Cain” right now.

Lots of Mormons in my precinct. At one point the local bishop lived next door to me, still lives in my precinct. He spoke for Mitt last time around, I think he probably will again. I threw away my vote for Fred, and a lot of my church friends voted for Huck. I tried to tell them, but no one would listen...A friend from church tested the political waters a while back, and a lot of folks heed his advice. But TPaw is already out this time, not sure who this friend is behind at this point. TPaw...They wanted me to go to the straw poll in the worst way, but I wouldn't spend a day to vote for TPaw...then he supports Mitt...I dont always make good choices, but I did this time.
