Will you vote for whichever candidate the Republican party nominates, regardless of your personal views on the candidate. For sake of this poll, let's assume it will be Romney, Santorum or Gingrich.

    While I feel Obama and his cronies are hopelessly out of touch with both facts and the American public's needs, I can't unequivocally say I will vote for the GOP candidate. In all likelihood I will - it would take a VERY strong independent candidate to convince me. Ross Perot is still a black spot in my memory.

    Yes, I'll vote for the eventual GOP nominee for the simple fact that four more years of the Obomination occupying the WH is unacceptable, as would be sitting home in a blue funk and not voting. We still need to work on putting some really good people in the House and Senate, too. They (House and Senate) should be the dog that wags the tail (POTUS), not the other way around. They control the spending and general direction of the legislation.

    **** = Anyone But Obama. That's how I see it now. So "yes" I vote Republican regardless of the nominee.

    Romney will likely win nomination. He's "acceptable" in my book, a genuine moderate Republican (not a RINO however) but also someone with good brains, leadership potential, and who'd be a decent, responsible Prez. His election will probably come w. our getting the Senate and enlarging our House majority, too. I think that the number of Tea Party and other conservatives in congress can help keep Romney's toes to the fire for critical issues, at least to turn the corner and begin to repair the damage done. He'd be okay.

    Santorum and Newt I find less acceptable because I simply don't think they've got the organization and wherewithal to be Prez, at least not as well as Mitt could be. But either would still be all right. What might not happen with them would be a similar groundswell in associated votes that are needed to get back the Senate and enlarge the House majority. In other words, I don't think their coattails are as broad as Mitt's.

    Ron Paul has zero chance so I'm not even considering him.

    I will vote for Paul or Romney. I would have to give Santorum a hard look. Gingrich... Never.

    Yeah, me too.

    I see it as 1) get Obama out out out, then 2) gripe and complain and chastize the new Prez in areas you want, get your congress to steer him more toward your views. Item 2 I can live with but it's not gonna happen till we finish with item 1.

    As a Texan I could lay back and sail, knowing that the Tx electoral votes will go Red. I'll vote regardless, just to show the flag and help determine local elections.

    States like Cal and NY are lost to us for the foreseeable time, so assume they'll go Obama.

    Where we've really got to rally is those large swing states like PA, FLA, Ohio. Voters there will determine the election.

    Thing is if you do not vote republican this time, it is the same as a vote for Obama.

    Probably. Almost certainly. Being more of a Libertarian, I generally feel that if the Republicans are "the answer", it must have been a pretty dumb question, but in this case it come down to the question of "who can do the most damage?" That's pretty clearly Obama. Whoever he puts in the Supreme Court will cause us grief for decades after he's moseyed back to Chicago.

    Once again, it's a matter of who I fear the least. Haven't voted FOR anybody in a presidential election yet. Doesn't look like the streak is gonna end soon.

    Exactly. If I thought that the Republican nominee was a runaway contest over Obama, I'd vote for someone else just as a message to the Republicans that I think their candidates are about as crooked and worthless as Obama. HOWEVER... right now I'm more concerned with who will do less damage in their choice of supreme court nominees. :-(

    I want to vote for Ron Paul, but given his currently poor standings and the fact he may be gone entirely by November, it would just be another vote for Oslapnuts by proxy...

    Myself, about half the time. Goldwater for certain. Reagan of course. Bushes with some modest enthusiasm. But the rest? Check the "not a Democrat" box.

    Absolutely, I will vote for any Republican candidate. Obama must go. Voting any other way is a vote for Obama, so all you people remember that when the time comes. One MUST set priorities, even in one's ideals, and the biggest threat to our nation is Obama paired with a Democratic Congress. Thank goodness the Repubs got the House, which stopped Obama and his cronies cold, at least legislatively. Vote Republican all the way.

    I probably will, but I refuse to say that 'I'll vote for whoever has an 'R' by their name!" It that kind of thinking that gives us a Republican candidate that is identical to Obama except he is 1/2 less black.

    Whoever has the "R" will probably win Texas handily. My county will go for Obama (the wonders of living near the state capitol), so I could probably be all self-righteous and do a ideological vote and not have any risk.

    Only 2 of my votes have been FOR a candidate, and those were Regan's second term (my first vote) and for Bush1 the first time. Voted against Clinton twice, against Gore, Kerry and Obummer once each (so far) Obummer will get another "anti-vote" from me this Nov
