    Not necessarily.

    In New York State I normally vote Row "D" which currently is the Conservative Party Line. Our Party has not yet nominated a Presidential candidate. Usually we endorse Republicans, but not always.

    I am not really excited about McCain. It appears he will be the nominee, but I am not sure I can vote for him. The question is do I vote the lesser of two evils.

    Depending on who is running; and in NY there are usually 10 - 12 parties on the ballot. I just may vote for a minor party candidate. Just will have to wait and see.

    The candidate i voted for in our primary dropped out a few days later...so my choice is to go with the party line (McCain) or find a new candidate. I can hold my nose and vote for McCain...but if it turned out to be one of a few other GOP'ers out there, i would have considered bolting for a 3rd party.
