    #3 is the reason we need a negative vote. The only problem I would have is whom to down vote: Clinton or Trump.:p:p:p

    You are guaranteed to have either Hillary or Trump as your president. They both have completely different platforms so one of them should be much worse the the other. Unless you live in a state where your vote doesn't mean anything, you should vote for either Hillary or Trump.

    Voting for someone you completely disagree with because the other choice is someone you completely disagree with only encourages 'your' party to keep selecting people you disagree with. Not voting for them might mean the other party wins. Quite a conundrum.

    As a teacher, I had my students fill out the entire expanded survey on isidewith.com and based on that they had an idea of which candidate they agreed with ideologically. It makes sense that voting should be based on how you feel about the issues.

    I got Jill Stein. Hahaha, like I'm going to vote for her.

    Maybe I'll expand each category and answer more questions when I have time.

    That was fun and knowledgeable though. Thanks for posting the link :)

    When you look at the two candidates carefully, one will always be more disagreeable then the other. :).

    The problem is that most people don't vote on the issues or vote only on just one hot button issue.

    Yeah...I try to teach my kids to vote on the issues that are important to them though.

    Sure but are you ever going to get a good candidate from your party if all they need to present is a less worse one?
