    What current candidates will you consider voting for and which ones will you refuse to vote for?

    So did you intentionally leave off Paul?

    Well not really. The poll would only allow 10 options. I picked the top 10 to include in the poll but feel free to mention him or any of the others. Paul does not have a chance either way.

    Refuse: Bush, Trump, Paul, Graham, Kasich, Pataki

    Consider: Carson, Jindal, Christie

    Could Vote for: Santorum, Cruz, Huckabee, Walker

    Want to Vote for: Rubio, Fiorina

    Basically if any candidate in my "Refuse" category gets the nomination, I will vote third party.

    I don't understand the difference between "could" and "consider".

    Yeah, there isn't much difference, I guess. The people in the "Consider" category I deem as not as attractive as the "Could" category. Another way to look at it is if the people in the "Consider" category get the nomination, I still might vote third party. The people in the "Could" category, I would vote for them, but not necessarily be wild about it.

    Well, there are several of those listed I'd "consider", but currently my top choice is Rand Paul whom you didn't list (and I've duly noted your reason for not doing so).

    I've voted in the Republican primaries but have ended up voting third party the last several elections.

    None of them. Looks like another write-in for me.

    If I had to vote for a Republican, it would be Cruz.

    How about a GOP ticket consisting of FL Senator Marco Rubio and Dr. Ben Carson?

    Would you vote GOP if that's what they offered America I 2016?

    If there was no suitable third party candidate, I might.

    Actually, I think Carly and Carson should be the ticket. But they can't beat Hillary.

    Trump shouldn't be a nominee, much less a candidate - but he's currently the only one who has a chance of beating Hillary.

    I know of no 3rd party candidates that are worthy of voting for. Yet.

    Yes. This isn't a football rivalry. I don't vote for "my team" to win at any costs.

    If the Republicans can't field a better candidate, then I'm going to vote for a third party. And if a Democrat wins, then a Democrat wins.

    I'm only responsible for my vote, not anybody else's.

    If that's what it takes to send the message to the RNC to quit running lousy candidates, then so be it.

    Yep. It's taken me several election cycles but this is my mindset.
