So, you would vote republican even if they were guilty of sexual harassment or pedophilia? Just because they are not a democrat?

Quoting ILovemyPaulie:

No I would never vote for a Democrat.

I can't vote in your poll because I'm not either a dem or a repub.

However, as long as the accusations are credible (some have obvious credibility issues, such as Kathleen Willey) then no, I would not vote for the candidate.

OK, so first you posted "accused" and now you are saying "guilty"? So which is it?  I'd vote for Mickey Mouse before I would ever vote for a Democrat.  I may as well flog myself if I were to do that but I'm not into self abuse LOL

Accused or were actually guilty of sexual harassment?

There are a lot of accusations for various things out there that are false or have been manipulated with the intention of hurting someone's campaign.  In this case, I would assess the source and then decide.

If the sources seem credible or if it came out they are true, then ....no, I would not vote.  I also would not vote for the other person because I do not agree with their politics.

I won't vote for anybody who has credible accusations of harrassment or abuse against them. I am as liberal as they come, and I won't vote for a liberal who is a sexual predator.

How about "credible"?

Would you vote for a Republican in a tight race in a swing state over a Democrat if there were credible accusations against the Republican? Roy Moore is a great example here.

I'm a more conservative Christian and I can't get over how many Christians seem to give a pass on sexual predators..as long as they are Republican. 

Part of the reason why, although I'll always be a Christian, I doubt I will ever join a local church again.

This poll is skewed.
Anyone can vote anyway to make a side look like they don't care.
