For those of you that voted for John McCain in the '08 election:

Would you vote for him again? What if it were Obama vs. McCain again.? Or would you try to promote a third party and see someone else get elected?

  • A third party vote doesn't have to be a vote for Obama. More people need to get away from that line of thinking so that we can break down the two party system for good. I voted third party, and I would do so today as well. There is another choice other than "the lesser of two evils". Of course, maybe all the smaller parties just need to combine resources, find a candidate, and put everything and every vote into that person. That could be the only way third party candidate has a chance, at least for now.

  • I would vote for him again rather than Obama. A third party vote is a vote for Obama.

  • I was curiuos,. out of all the candidates, who would they have rather seen on the ballot ...if McCain didn't win the nomination?

    Of those Republican candidates that made it to the Primary round, I think Mitt Romney would have at minimum, given Obama a run for the money--and viewed by voters as the stronger, more effective and experienced candidate during the Town Hall debates--you know, since voters seem to be drawn to candidates who are good looking, a smooth talker, and possess a nice smile!! LOL :o)

  • Agree with carpy.McCain is a RINO and hes showing it more and more with each day but i'd rather put up with a RINO for a few years than what we have now.

  • Didn't vote McCain so no I wouldn't vote for him if he was running in 2012. I voted for Chuck Baldwin in 2008.... Would have voted for Ron Paul.

  • John McCain had my vote until he picked his running mate. He would need to choose wisely, rather than unwisely this time around.

  • I would have voted third party.
