Have you ever been ashamed that you voted for someone?

I almost voted for our current governor, and I am ashamed to say that I even wanted to vote for him. He is terrible.

  • Nope. If you know who you're voting for and you do plenty of research, I can't imagine why you'd be ashamed.

  • Nope. I always voted for the best person up and based my vote on the information I had then.

  • Well, I wasn't all that happy voting for McCain, but in my mind he was the lesser of the 2 evils on the ballot.

  • I have regretted voting R when I wanted to vote I. But at the given time, voting I was more of a guarantee for the D... The D?~ BAD politician....

  • No more often than not I vote for what I feel are the lesser of two evils so regardless of what that person does...... It was still better then what we would have gotten.
