Now that Clinton is officially the democrat nominee its a race between Clinton and her donor Trump.

Hillary Clinton
Donald Trump IE Hillary Clinton's donor
3rd party candidate( if your state doesn't screw 3rd party candidates out of ballot access.)
Staying home
Leaving that part of the ballot blank.Because there other races going on,ballot questions and etc.

I honestly do not know. I've been considering this for months now, and I still suspect I end up voting for a 3rd party assuming they make it to the ballot. But, I am still not sure.

As a former Sanders supporter I have no choice but to vote 3rd party. Hillary Clinton is a horribly awful human being who's used her political career to make herself astronomically rich and has absolutely no intention of getting money and corporate influence out of our politics, and Donald Trump is a thin skinned, science denying man-child. I'll be voting for Stein of the Greens or Johnson of the Libertarians. The R's and D's are now dead to me.

Why would you need to skew the poll with snark?

Presumptive nominee. There will be no official nominee until the convention.

But in the most likely event that it is Trump and Hillary? I will most likely vote for Jill Stein.

3rd Party, or write-in. Perhaps I'll vote for Bob Gates.

Donald Trump. I don't expect him to win, but it's the closest I can come to, "Let's vote the bums out."

Doesn't that amount to hiring the guy that financed child porn to watch your kids or hiring the person who paid arsonists to burn down homes to be police chief or hiring someone convicted of check fraud to work as a bank teller?
Trump praised the job those bums did, supported those bums and donated money to those bums.

Almost a year ago, I could not have imagined I was going to vote for the Democrat.

In comes Cruz and Trump.

Therefore: Clinton. Without hesitation or reservations.

James, I hope the number of votes DT gets in the national election scares the CRAP out of the status quo on both sides of the aisle. That's my reasoning. It's time to turn our political model inside out. It reeks.

if I see some signs of sanity..i'm leaning that way..if.

I really wanted the political revolution Bernie was providing. an end to big donor corporatist governing
and special influence buying legislation.

Clinton is such a screw up I could write pages. Her Emails show her arrogance of power, and the Libyan war 2011 her terrible judgment.

I went 3rd party in 2012, and it's principled but very unfulfilling..I'm gonna wait and see now that Bernie is all but out.

Asides ..BillClinton said to Bernie hecklers the other day "Bernie's toast"(finished).
The cool meme going around is : "toast don't vote" (forHRC)...I like that one ;)

Jill Stein in the event Clinton doesn't start making some meaningful policy compromises with Bernie.

Have to admit that I'm kind of surprised at this as Johnson will do nothing to address the blight of money in politics and legalized corruption which had always seemed like important primary issues to you. In fact he explicitly supports no limits on campaign donations/contributions and would probably end up making these issues worse if anything.

Doubtful. And anything he could "make worse", will be leagues better than what Clinton or Trump will do.

Maybe, but flat out supporting unlimited money in politics is pretty damning, particularly vis a vis Jill Stein.

That's disgusting, azgreg. This is the American political process and a vote for the leader of the free world, this process should still command some respect. You should vote for Four Roses.
