  • Sure. IF he was the best candidate IMO, then yes, I would vote for him. Someone's sexuality, religious beliefs, race or lifestyle don't come in to play for me... What matters is their views and dreams for the country... Presidential elections are about electing the person who will do what is best for everyone... Not about liking them as a person...

  • Yes to both, if I agreed with their platforms.
    I don't believe religious affiliation or sexual orientation has anything to do with their ability to do their job.

  • Considering what we have had (Blago, Frank, Dodd, Pelosi, ect..)...their religon and sexual preference are the least of my worries...

  • My only consideration while voting would be whether or not I agreed with the candidate and the party's platform. Their religion or sexual orientation would not even enter into the picture.
