Want an opinion from this group about our pres. primary--

Next week, we get to cast our vote in the presidential primary. It's an open primary, so we are not locked in to voting with a party we are registered to. Although I'm a passionate (fanatical?) liberal Dem, I am thinking about casting my ballot in the (repressed vomit reflex--can't believe I'm saying this) Republican primary instead, for Marco Rubio or one of the less-popular or withdrawn candidates on the ballot. Granted that my one vote alone will make little difference, I would like to use it to make life less comfortable for tRump and Cruz. Theory being to promote the weakest candidate of our opponents. While I prefer Bernie ideologically over Hillary, I will support our candidate whole-heartedly in the GE campaign.

What do Missouri group think?

1. I think it's always better to vote for something than against

Always.

3. Every vote is crucial for Bernie and he consistently polls as

 

The STRONGER GE CANDIDATE.

One vote for Rubio, if you please,
won't even make Cruz sneeze,
or give Trump wobbly knees, or fleas.

But your one vote for Bernie is Yuge..

because the Force (yes, that Force) has pledged to match the vote of every human heart saying no to cheat and deceit.

Heartfelt, crazy Hope must and will prevail over sensible hopelessness.
A big sun is rising.

4. What the others said...

a vote in the R primary is wasted.

Bernie needs the votes to be the nominee, otherwise all is lost...

5. A million times no.

Republicans and so called Independents in this state like to mess with primaries especially now since Trump is leading in all races, and it would be a wasted vote. Vote for the candidate of your choice and may the best one win.

6. Okay, after much thought, I voted for Bernie.

Even up to the last minute, I was tempted to cast my vote to Rubio, or Uncommitted. I finally decided that if I did vote for a Republican, I would feel so dirty that I would have to go straight home and take a long, hot, soapy shower--and I didn't have time for that......!
