Have you decided not to vote in the 2012 Presidential Election?
Can you explain your reason for choosing not to vote?
I don't vote because nothing will ever change in America. Americans should look forward to more layoffs, higher unemployment, longer welfare lines, more pollution, its like come on Wall Street, make the gas prices $100.00 a gallon at the pump and drive Americans deeper into poverty! You're almost there Wall Street! The HR department where I work at just increased the medical benefits up 3% and vision benefits up %10. Well, where's that $700 billion dollar healthcare reform bill that was voted on and passed in the white house? Where did all that money go?
I don't know why Americans vote since the majority of votes aren't even counted. Americans should audit all their tax payer money and where it really goes and also audit all the money that goes in and out of the Federal Reserve Bank every second of every day!
ssaffery, your comment makes me very sad. I am just as frustrated as you but I refuse to give away my right to have a say, even if it does me no good. To give in is to say to big government - you win, take it all. I can't do it.
I haven't decided not to vote, just not for either candidate. I may even vote for Rosanne Barr.
Should have voted for "Ron Paul " in 2008. I'm thinking of voting for "Gary Johnson "in 2012. Gary Johnson was literally the single most-qualified candidate running on the Republican ticket in 2011. He was a two-term Republican governor, who won in
JThom42 - You're too smart to waste a vote in THIS election and I know it. I would love to vote for a third party but this one is to close to give votes away. Think about it, please? You were kidding, right?
I had decided that I would vote Romney until I learned about Rosanne. She's a must better choice and I'll still get to vote. Whatever it will take to make a change will be satisfactory for me.
The scary part of this question is that if American's continue to stop voting, and yes I have considered; we will end up were we began; with a King ruling. Eventually if everyone stops voting, then our government will have no choice but just flat appoint someone...King. Do we really want to start all over?
Some would say a kind of CEO king of USA inc is already occurring and has been for quite sometime. Go to You-tube and watch Eisenhower's warning in his farewell speech to the American people.
I'm going to vote, but I'm voting Green. I'm with the others, it's about time we started voting for our real beliefs, not for who we think will win or not. Our votes at least count for the polls.
If the results show a stronger vote for Green than expected (which is a clear vote for the environment), newspapers are likely to say, "Oh, there are many more people interested in a healthy environment than we realized!" and whoever wins will (hopefully) take notice, especially in the case of large votes.
Voting for what we really believe and educating legislators on issues important to us, in addition to what you're doing to monitor election fraud, are some of the best actions we citizens can take to improve the Democratic process, imo.
I early voted in my state, so my answer may not count for your question. I do want to say that in our election for U.S. Representative, one of my friends was running. I like her and I like her politics, but I did not vote for her because it would have been a throwaway vote for a party that barely made it on the ballot. The real issue was between the two major parties in this particular contest, and to vote for her just because she was my friend would be as useless as voting for Roseanne in the presidential contest.
MizB, you must be inside my brain. You did the right thing, in my opinion. We can't waste a vote this time. I'm not voting for my first choice either for the same reason.
Just saw the comment above mine. My friend was Green Party.

Will you vote in the 2012 presidential elections?I always vote, though I often feel that I have to choose between inadequate parties. So the question. Will you vote or will you abstain from voting in November?

Who do you think will win the 2012 Presidential Election?

I personally think that Romney will win because Obama's supporters won't be as enthusiastic and riled up as they were in 2008. He'll likely have losses in key demographics, such as the African American vote, that won't be large but may still add up to hurt him whether these votes transfer to Romney...

Who do you feel will win the 2012 Presidential election?I want to make it clear that this isn't necessarily the same thing as who you want to win. I am more curious who you feel will win and why you feel they will win.
