What do you consider someone who votes for whoever whether the president is a dem or a rep?

I'm not very political for the most part, but I don't only stick to one side. If I feel like the dem president is more fit to be over this country I choose him, Vice versa with a rep president. Of course I have my own personal beliefs and some of them line up more with rep than dem but not all. I'm kind of like an agnostic but in a political sense! lol j/k..Seriously though..If you need more detail you can ask. No bashing please.

  • I vote for whoevers issues support what I feel is right for the country and my family. That is how you are supposed to vote. I don't follow party lines, I vote with my brain.

  • I consider myself a Republican, but look at everything each candidate stands for. I would call you someone who doesn't vote based on party, but just based on the person.

  • I'm an Independent, meaning I vote for the person and for the cause, not just along party lines, regardless of what the party is.

    I agree - those people are what I would call intelligent. I would also call them open minded :-)

    To just blindly vote for something or someone because one party or the other endorses it or them isn't a good thing, because parties and their views change and evolve, and they might or might not coincide with your own personal views, but if you don't look into it and see what it's about, or what that person represents, and THEN base your decision on that, then you're basically just blindly casting your vote without any idea what you're really voting for, and in my opinion, that's worse than not voting at all.
