Are you going to vote in the November 2008 election no matter who wins the Republican primary?

Posted on 11/25/2007 5:29:03 PM PST by cradle of freedom

I would like to know if you are going to vote in the November 2008 election even if your candidate does not win. Will you stay home if you don't like the Republican candidate?

Another thing that I have often wondered about is whether people actually stay home when they are disheartened. News commentators often say that some voters may have decided to stay home because they were not happy with the candidates. I think that is a mistake because even if you do not like the person at the top of the ticket you should at least vote for the other candidates. Have you every actually stayed home and not gone to the polls at all because you were not happy with a candidate?

Yes, I will support the eventual nominee with my time, money, and most importantly my vote.

In November, 2008, I will vote for any of the realistic GOP candidates except Rudy. If Rudy wins the nomination, I will not just stay home. I will vote AGAINST him.

If anyone other than Hunter or Fred is nominated I’ll write in my own name.

I agree with you .. we cannot stay home - no matter who the repubs choose as the nominee.

The very thought of 4 to 8 more years of Bubba is just too much to bear.

but if Ron Paul is nominated, I will convert to Islam and move to Iran.

If the candidate is Rudy, Romney or Huckabee, the answer is no. We end up voting for republicans only to accuse them of being RINO’s which is exactly what a lot of conservatives have been calling these guys.

I did once after George "read my lips" Bush blew his four years in office. Didn't like the results.

Ron Paul would make it really hard to vote for anyone. Either candidate will actively work to surrender in the WOT. He is better that HRC domestically--I'm a big fan of genuinely smaller government. But we have to win the war for there to be a "domestic." And, his foreign policy nonsense makes me question his judgment across the board. Who knows what amazing things he'll come up with if he were president.

Other than that, I'll hold my nose and vote for whomever the R's put up.

Yes. I’ll probably vote. Usually do. The primary season is the time to vote on which type of republican/conservative you want to win. During the general election you vote for which one is closest to your point of view. During ones lifetime there may only be a few ocassions when your party’s candidate is someone who you really are super jazzed up about. For me that was my first vote in 1980 for Reagan.

Cradle of freedom, I'd vote even if I was in a coma.

I’ll vote. And I’ll vote Republican, even if I have to hold my nose while I do it because the choices stink.

Even the worst of the Republican candidates is better than the best of the Dems.

God help us all.

Yes, because I don’t want to surrender our troops to the Demoncraps. Why would anyone want our troops to be under the command of Hitlery?? If you give our troops to Hitlery, you are giving our troops to Al Qaeda.

Who wants that?

Hillary will be the biggest get out the vote movement in republican history. You couldnt buy enough advertising or have enough volunteers for how much Hillary will motivate the right in this nation to vote against her.

Great answer.

I like your response better than mine. Sure I will go to the polls and do a write in as well.

The beast still wins, but at least I participated in the process. LOL

Cuz a Rudy presidency isn’t a whole lot better than a Hillary presidency. If he’s nominated I dunno what I’ll do. If Romney’s nominated I’ll vote for him to stop Hillary. Aside from those two and Fred, no one else has a chance at winning the primary.

I plan on voting in November no matter who the Republicans nominate. If, however, they nominate Rudy, I’ll find a non-Republican to vote for. There are usually a half dozen choices on the ballot.

Yes if by the Grace of God I’m still alive and able to get to the polls.

Hey just think some of the voters begin making the selection process in just another 38 days or so.... Isn’t that exciting to think that now we truly are going to see who the actually voters want to be the nominee.....

Btw, huge article today pushing Ron Paul’s candidacy in the Wash ComPost. The only reason for this is to sow discord in the GOP.
