    Unsurprisingly to me, I’m 93% aligned with Obama, 92% with Jill Stein, and a whopping 4% with Mitt Romney.

    @Follydust321:  I don’t know that it’s a waste of a vote per se for the reasons you outlined, but I do think it’s worth considering the possibility (if you are in a swing state) that your vote could potentially disadvantage the major party candidate that you agree with more.  I mean, if you live in one of the easily red or blue states that’s one thing, but in a tight race with only a few true undecided voters out there, if you live in a state that is up for grabs, I wonder what the effect could be. Call it the Nader-effect if you will.

    That said, I don’t know if anyone ran the numbers on the Bush-Gore campaign. It may be that the Nader voters would have split anyway if forced to choose a major party candidate. Just food for thought.

    This didn’t surprise me one bit, especially since I voted Nader and Obama in the last two presidential elections, respectively.

    Hey, I know Jill Stein! I was not surprised with my stance. I used to vote for The Working Party while in Brooklyn. They are a third party and a viable option to the Democrats whom sometimes I can’t even differentiate from Republicans! Anyhow, a snapshot of my views.

    I am a little surprise, I apparently don’t REALLY agree with any one canidate on all the issues. Though I am surprised to see what the stance of some of the canidates are on some issues. Apparently I am more fiscally liberal than I thought.

    I’m an Obama girl but truth be told I didn’t feel comfortable answering a lot of questions because I didn’t know much about the issues. I mean, I know what people say and what the media says, but people and the media are so biased that I can’t really feel confident that my answers really are what I feel would be best for the country, if that makes sense.

    I just really hate politics lol. I feel like everyone talks as if they know exactly what’s going no and everyone else is stupid when in reality I think nobody knows what they’re saying/doing.

    I was 93% Romney, 91% Ron Paul.. not surprised at all.  Obama was 35% but I chose the wrong answer for one of the illegal immigrant questions, saying I side with him on it when I really don’t.

    @iRun2004:  I vote third party (Green Party) and I consider it a long-term approach versus a short-term vote.  The idea is that every vote for a third party raises recognition and awareness, and while that might not make a difference in this particular election, over the long-term it increases the opportunity for a third party to gain popularity and stature. 

    As it is, I’m in a blue state, so my vote for Obamam would count for almost nothing.  🙂

    Lots of Jill- that’s good except she won’t win, sadly.
