With all the Republican candidates narrowed down to two viable and one desperate man, a lot of people have voted for a candidate that isn't in the field today. If so, you can vote in this poll.


DO NOT VOTE IN THIS POLL IF YOU VOTED DEMOCRAT OR YOUR CANDIDATE IS STILL IN THE RACE.

Who are the two viable? Cruz and Kasich are mathematically eliminated from the race. The only hope for either is a brokered convention, and the GOP would sink before they gave Cruz the nomination.

Anyone besides you.

How can anyone know who they will vote for before the general election campaign even starts?

Which is why they will give it to Kasich. You can't honestly think they'll let Trump have the nomination either.

Maybe, or they could just give it to some random person who didn't run. If the Republican party wants to survive, I think Trump will get it. If not, the Republican party will be no more after this election.

Libertarian - Right
I would vote for Kasich if I were in a state or district where Kasich can take delegates from Trump, and (with much less pleasure) for Cruz where he has better chances.
Never Trump.

Never Trump.

With a reverse position between Kasich and Cruz, I am in the same candidate. My overriding concern is #NeverTrump. Between Kasich and Cruz, I'll vote for Cruz if it's a coin flip, and whichever one is best positioned to take delegates from Trump if it isn't.

I have a hard time believing that they will simply 'poof' - reality doesn't work that way. Could they be circumvented in popularity by the Libertarian party next cycle? Sure, I actually hope that happens. So more power to me hoping they don't nominate TRUMP.
